British-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua got the sum of £15 million (N8.2 billion) for beating Wladimir Klitschko last weekend – the biggest purse earned by a British fighter on home soil.

Only Ricky Hatton has picked up more in one night, as he earned in excess of £15 million for his clash with Floyd Mayweather Jnr in 2007 in Las Vegas.

The heavyweight clash at Wembley Stadium generated huge interest, which reach 1.5 million sales on pay-per-view, eclipsing the previous record of 1.15 milliom for Mayweather’s clash with
Manny Pacquiao in 2015, which was 100,000 above the American’s fight with Hatton.

Joshua’s defence of the IBF belt against Klitschko, generated gate receipts worth about £7 million.

US television rights sold for almost £2.4 million, with Showtime and HBO sharing the rights.
German TV RTL has also paid about £4 million to broadcast the event in the country where Ukrainian Klitschko is a star.

More than £1 million was pumped in by sponsors, while merchandising broke the £1 million barrier to deliver an eye-watering total well in excess of £40 million.
