- Mr Eazi has stated that his child will have to become a boxer at six months old
- The music artiste is citing the financial implication of the sport which runs into billions
- Rumour had it that Anthony Joshua earned a staggering N29billion after defeating Kubrat Pulev
Following speculation that Nigeria’s Anthony Joshua won $85,000,000 (about N29billion) for defeating Kubrat Pulev December 12, top music star Mr Eazi has stated that his son will start boxing at a tender age of six months.
The 31-year-old Brit successfully defended his WBA, WBO and IBF titles after defeating the Bulgarian by TKO in the heavyweight bout which lasted nine rounds.
And there were rumours that Joshua smiled home with N29 billion after the bout and famous celebrities are beginning to consider the sport for their wards.
Nigerian singer and blogger Tunde Ednut had posted a photo showing two kids who looked to have just boxed themselves, as they had the head-gear as well as the boxing gloves on.
Tunde Ednut captioned the photo on Instagram asking if the idea of kids engaging themselves in boxing was right. And Mr Eazi replied:
“Omo mehn see as them kpoks the other guy!!! Las las with the way that Anthony Joshua dey collect money my pikin gats dey box from 6 months old.”
Eazi, while citing Joshua’s feat of receiving huge sums of money after defeating Pulev, claims his son will begin boxing at 6 months.
Although there are no confirmed amounts for both boxers, reports, however, suggest that Joshua only earned around £6-10million (about N3-5billion) from his win over Pulev.
It was far less compared to his last match, but due to the pandemic with strict regulations, there were only 1000 fans in attendance at Wembley Arena.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has vowed to knock his countryman Anthony Joshua out in the third round.
The 32-year-old made the comments in a short clip posted on his official Twitter page after watching his fellow Briton beat Bulgarian opposition Kubrat Pulev at the O2 Arena.
It was like a one-way fight as the 31-year-old dominated most part of the match before eventually finishing the Bulgarian off with a spectacular right-hand in the ninth round.
