According to our research, Anthony Joshua’s Net Worth sits at an estimated $80 million in 2021. For the most part, Joshua makes most of his killing plying his trade in the ring but also from his lucrative endorsement deals.

Last year, the British-Nigerian also scored a thundering knockout on Kubrat Pulev. As a result, AJ’s influence has grown further and seen him become one of the most promising and marketable athletes. 

Previously, in an interview with GQ, AJ talks about becoming a multi-millionaire. But, he feels that he must now aim higher and is hence working toward becoming a multi-billionaire instead.

Freddie Cunningham, Joshua’s marketing manager claims that all of AJ’s holidays (to Jamaica, Miami, and Dubai) are free and paid for. Freddie adds, “He’s not spending that money. He’s accumulating money. He’s living a lifestyle that probably everyone wants him to live, or see him live, but he’s doing it in a smart way. Tactful.”
