Anthony Joshua net worth, purses for Eric Molina fightWritten by Lee Cleveland
Tonight, surging IBF Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua (17-0, 17 KO) faces challenger Eric Molina (25-3, 19 KO).
If successful, Joshua may face long-reigning former champion Wladimir Klitschko in April and in front of more than 80,000 live spectators.
So what is Anthony Joshua's net worth and what will his purse be for the Molina fight?
According to TheCelebritiesNetworth.com and FamousBirthsDeaths.com, Anthony Joshua is worth £13.5 Million ($17 Million USD) and £8 Million ($10 Million USD), respectively.
Joshua vs Molina purses and net worth
It's believed Anthony will earn roughly £2Million ($2.5 Million USD) tonight, about the same he garnered for his most recent bout, thanks to PPV buys, sponsors and lucrative endorsements.
How big would a Klitschko showdown be?
Should it happen, look for Joshua to earn at least 40 percent of an expected £30Million purse (£12 Million or $15 Million USD).
Eric Molina is believed to be worth around $2.5 Million (£1.9 Million), although we think that's a bit high. Last year against WBC Champion Deontay Wilder, Molina earned about $250,000 (£198,000) significantly less than Wilder's $1.5 Million (£1.2 Million).
Tonight, Molina should earn in the neighborhood of $300-400,000 (£238,000-318,000).
