Heavweight king Anthony Joshua recorded the biggest rise in fortune in sport over the past year.

According to Sunday Times Rich List, Joshua’s net worth rose by £58m in what was a year of mixed emotions for the boxer.

The 30-year-old net worth stands at £107m after a successful campaign in 2019 that was him recaptured the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles following a shocking defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr in their first fight.

Joshua is second to Gareth Bale in the Young Rich List, though his fortune is way off Lewis Hamilton’s £224m net worth as the richest sports star in Britain.

The Nigerian-born boxer made £18m in his first fight against Andy Ruiz Jr last summer at the Madison Square Garden.

He reclaimed his title via unanimous decision in the rematch in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia last December.

Several endorsement deals add further to his annual income, leading to a fortune now estimated at £107m.
