Anthony Joshua has banked millions over the course of his boxing career, but when it comes to spending money on himself, the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion isn’t interested.
That’s because AJ far prefers to treat those close to him, whether that means splashing out on epic holidays, sports cars or houses.
His bout next year with Tyson Fury could net the pair an incredible £150 million and is expected to be the most lucrative in history.
But as Joshua’s wealth increases, so does his generosity.
“AJ doesn’t splash his cash on himself but he does on others; his team, his family, his past trainers, his friends and his community,” an insider told The Sun.
“He could have bought himself a mansion years ago but that has been his last priority because he’s made sure everyone else was sorted first.
“The gifts aren’t him being flash, it’s him showing his gratitude.”
He began boxing in 2007, aged 18, and since turning professional in July 2013, when he signed a deal with Matchroom Boxing, Joshua’s record now stands at 23-1.
Joshua is due to take on Kubrat Pulev next in a bout which he must win to set up the highly anticipated showdown with Fury.
The Arsenal supporter recently spoke of being with his family in lockdown and the struggles of trying to maintain his fitness.
“I have no gym or swimming pool in my house,” he told DAZN.
“I am actually at my family home with my Mum, my niece, my son and my cousin, we are all quarantining together so it’s nice.
“We are all aware there is a pandemic happening across the world but fortunately none of my family have had any tragic losses or massive effects from the virus.
“We are trying to take advantage of spending time together.”
