An intense heavyweight war went down inside the squared circle in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, March 31. Now the massive fight salaries from the night’s headliners have been revealed.
Undefeated boxing champion Anthony Joshua put his titles and his spotless record of 20 knockout victories on the line when he faced off against fellow undefeated pugilist Joseph Parker inside the Principality Stadium. While Joshua has never gone the distance in his career prior to facing Parker, this match up made it all 12 rounds.
Still, in the end, Joshua earned a unanimous decision victory over his opponent. According to UK media, Parker and Joshua will each be walking away with massive salaries for their recent match up.
Joshua is reportedly receiving a staggering total of $28 million for the match up. Joseph Parker is set to earn a career high $18 million for his defeat to the champion, nearly 10 times the pugilist’s payday from his most recent match up.
