Anthony Joshua is set to pocket the biggest-ever purse for a British fighter in Saturday’s rematch with Andy Ruiz Jnr.
Joshua’s earnings for the Clash on the Dunes in Diriyah could be an eye-watering £46million.
International broadcasting rights, marketing agreements and ticket sales will also add to Joshua’s purse.
Sky Sports Box Office pay-per-view sales will also swell Joshua’s earnings and the fight is excepted to start around 9:00 pm.
By comparison, Ruiz will only earn around £7.5m, even though he sensationally stripped Joshua of the WBA Super, IBF and WBO belts by demolishing him inside seven rounds to become world champion.
Ruiz’s purse was agreed under the terms of the rematch clause inserted in the original fight contract.
But the Mexican, who fights out of California, will still easily pocket his biggest-ever payday.
