Nigeria-born British boxer Anthony Joshua who is currently holding on to the IBF, WBA, and WBO heavyweight world belts appears expensive and seemed to live a a life of luxury, and that goes to question if he like most celebrities live a prodigal life.
No doubt, most celebrities are seen wearing expensive wears, using expensive cars, clubbing, as well as living in homes whose value may be considered to be wasteful and that may also be extended to AJ as he is popularly called.
Unfortunately, its a different ball game for Anthony Joshua who has hardly spent his money on any of those things. AJ uses most of those things and lives a life of luxury, but all his expenses are being borne by his sponsors.
According the The Sun Anthony Joshua has 12 endorsement deals currently under his heavyweight belt – earning him an estimated £5m per year – ranging from clothing, electronics and cars that keep in the money when he isn’t fighting opponents.
His right man and marketing manager, Freddie Cunningham, says that despite having “a lot of money,” Joshua “doesn’t live the life that he could.”
He actually uses a private jet Cunningham revealed, but Joshua has never spent his money to get one, because the jets are all sponsored. The US sportswear giant Under Armour, provide him with a private jet, as well as paying him a seven-figure salary. The jet is said to be valued £45 million and it is free according to The Sun
Anthony Joshua’s favourite car is his personalised black Range Rover, which he describes as “looks very professional and sets a standard”. He has a partnership with Jaguar Land Rover, which entitles him to get his cars changed when necessary and that saves him the cost of spending to buy any for himself.
Anthony Joshua has also shared photograph’s on instagram which shows how he enjoys his vacation to Dubai, Miami and Jamaica, but none of his monies has ever gone into any of those trips. He gets everything for free.
Anthony Joshua is not spending money even though he is living a lifestyle that appears to be expensive, but he is being prudent, tactical with money and yet living up to expectations.
More so, the fact that there is no woman in the life of the 29-year-old now may have also affected his spending. He has kept any love relationship out of his life even though he has a child from Nicole Osborne some four years ago. The closest woman to Anthony Joshua right now is his mother Yeta Odusanya and he shares a flat in Golders Green with her.
