Anthony Joshua is one of the sport’s wealthiest athletes. Despite his humble demeanor, Joshua lives a lavish life outside the boxing ring. Another reminder of his wealth was his investment in real estate over the last 12 months.
Joshua is the unified heavyweight champion and saw his net worth exceed the £100 million mark. Moreover, he became the first Britisher to pass that mark. However, he has no plans of stopping anytime soon.
The Mirror reported the details of Joshua’s latest investment in houses over the last year. They reported he spent a total of £7.5 million on over a dozen properties. Moreover, they claimed all the investments came in the past year.
The report revealed that Joshua’s promotional company 258 Management filed documents to the authorities, which confirmed the champion’s investments.
This included a £1 million London house, while 3 houses in his hometown of Watford accumulate to a total value of £1.5 million.
These figures showed the Englishman’s maturity with his riches. Rather than spending the money, he chose to invest it in real estate. Thus, showing that he is working towards his long-term welfare rather than a short-term luxury.
The champion clearly has several properties in his name. However, ‘AJ’ could add more houses to his name in 2021. Especially if things go to plan with the Tyson Fury fight, which looks like it will happen in June.
The 2-time heavyweight champion will reportedly earn over $100 million for the fight against Fury. Thus, going by his previous investments, it is clear that Joshua will utilize his earnings well and build on his net worth.
His shrewd decisions with his finances have led to an increase in his net worth by over £60 million over the past year. This is primarily thanks to the fights against Andy Ruiz Jr.
Therefore, we will most certainly see the Englishman invest his earnings from the Fury fight into smart avenues. What do you make of this news? Do you think Anthony Joshua is preparing for an early retirement from the sport?
