BOXING champion Anthony Joshua really has had a knockout year judging by his bank balance.

His finances grew by more than £60million in 12 months, despite suffering the first loss in his professional career.

New documents filed for his firm Sparta Promotions Ltd show he has £109,109,481 in the bank, having been at £49,032,751 a year earlier.

In the financial year up to February 29, 2020, he lost to Andy Ruiz Jr in round seven at Madison Square Garden in New York before beating him months later in Saudi Arabia.

Anthony now holds three of the four major world championships at heavyweight level.

Advertising deals with firms including William Hill, Lucozade, Google and Under Armour also helped to earn him the hefty pay packet.

A source close to the champ said: “He’s had a hell of a year — big fights and some massive commercial deals too.

He recently announced the launch of new production studio SBX Studios, which is a huge project for him.

“And he’s given loads of cash to help amateur boxing gyms stay afloat during the pandemic. He’s very generous with his success.”

Last year Anthony was said to be worth £107million in the Sunday Times’ annual rich list, which had gone up by £58million in 12 months.

Anthony has previously said about earnings from his bouts: “You earn £100, you pay a lot to the taxman, to the trainer, and before you know it you’re left with 30 per cent or 40 per cent.”

The humble, Watford-born fighter has put his money to good use though, buying homes in North London for his mum Yeta and ex- irlfriend Nicole Osbourne, who is the mother of his son Joseph.

And Anthony is clearly only just getting started, as he’s expected to earn £150million from one of the biggest fights ever when he takes on Tyson Fury.

The date for it is expected to be finalised in the next few weeks. I’m not too fussed about boxing but that match is something even I can get excited about.
