How Anthony Joshua lives a lavish life with private jets, holidays and luxury cars – without spending his £35m fortune.
But despite being worth £35million and living a life of luxury, British boxing icon Anthony Joshua is so humble that he still lives in an ex-council house with his mum – and gets everything from his luxury holidays to his clothes for free.
Anthony Joshua doesn’t spend any of his own money.
The boxing star also has a humble two-bed flat in Sheffield that he uses when training, which features a master bedroom with a single bed, worn out sofas in the living room and just one communal bathroom.
And while Joshua might be one of the few people in the country not to have to worry about the cost of his weekly supermarket shop, it seems he doesn’t even pay for his own cartons of eggs, with his sponsors paying for his meal prep as well.
The 6ft 6in 29-year-old – He banks all his money, only splashing out on treats for his family, not himself.
His right-hand man and marketing manager, Freddie Cunningham, says that despite having “a lot of money,” Joshua “doesn’t live the life that he could.”
Anthony Joshua is the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight world champion.
“From the outside, it probably looks like he does. He’s seen in private jets, wearing expensive watches, and driving around in nice cars,” he told Business Insider.
“But the jets are all sponsored. We’ve never paid for a private jet, or a helicopter, in our life. He gets a signature car from Land Rover.
“He’s not spending that money. He’s accumulating money. He’s living a lifestyle that probably everyone wants him to live, or see him live, but he’s doing it in a smart way. Tactful.”
Joshua has 12 endorsement deals currently under his heavyweight belt – earning him an estimated £5m per year – ranging from clothing, electronics and cars that keep him in the money when he isn’t fighting opponents.
