Fresh from voicing his desire to fight Jon Jones in the Octagon, Anthony Joshua will be subject to a bid from the UFC to make him the richest British Boxer of all time.
The multi-fight contract is to be offered by UFC President Dana White, who will be watching on as AJ takes on Joseph Parker in Cardiff on March 31st for his heavyweight unification bout.
According to The Telegraph, the UFC are reportedly looking to cash in on Joshua’s global appeal and ability to sell out arenas, where he’s already banked multi-million deals in his previous fights against the likes of Klitschko and Takam.
The report suggests that AJ would bank a massive £35 million per fight were he to make the switch. Joshua is almost certain to overtake Lennox Lewis’ career earnings of £84 million, and could even challenge Lewis Hamilton as the highest-grossing Briton in any sport were he to make the deal happen.
AJ recently showcased his ice cold mentality as part of a new film with Under Armour. Watch that here.
