Anthony Joshua And Oleksandr Usyk Each To Receive A Minimum Of £33.2 Million Fro Their Heavy Weight Rematch

The prize money for Saturday’s heavyweight title rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia has been revealed.

Recall that the duo went head-to-head on Wednesday at final press conference ahead of the rematch.

On noticing that Usyk had gotten bigger for the second fight, Joshua warned the Ukrainian that it won’t be enough and would only help him (Usyk) absorb more punishment.

”If you’re a puncher, punchers aren’t made, they’re born,” Anthony Joshua told Sky Sports News.

Meanwhile, further reports say the pay for the rematch could rise close to $50m for either Joshua or Usyk if pay per view television sales reach a sufficient level to justify adding a bonus for the winner.

Joshua will be attempting to reclaim the lost world heavyweight titles when he fights Oleksandr Usyk once again in Saudi Arabia.

This is a must win game for Anthony Joshua who paid dearly for a misguided approach during the first fight at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last September as he slumped to a dismal second professional loss.
