AJ's forthcoming clash with Usyk does not represent his career-high payday so far, earning £50m less than his historic rematch with Andy Ruiz which brought him home over £66 million.

The British-born Nigerian fighter will pocket £15m which is far less than what he earned when he stopped the Bulgarian Brut Kubrat Pulev.

However, the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO champion will miss the big fish after he was denied a £100m take home when his fight with fellow British heavyweight Fury collapsed.

Tyson Fury warns AJ over Usyk’s prowess

Legit.ng earlier reporetd that British boxer Tyson Fury has stated that he wants Anthony Joshua to defeat Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk in order not to scupper their £200million megafight plans.

The Gypsy King has left London barely a week before the fight at Tottenham stadium but will be watching on TV from thousands of miles away.

Any upset win for Usyk will see Fury and Joshua's fight cancelled as the heavyweight champions are billed to collide twice next year.
