Anthony Joshua is set to take on John Molina in what should be a massive fight in the UK for IBF heavyweight title this Saturday, 10th December 2016. It will be presented by Matchroom boxing owned by Eddie Hearns and it will be a PPV event which will headline a pretty awesome undercard. Anthony Joshua was hoping to get his big break against Wladimir Klitschko but that fight is put to hold due to Klitschko suffering injury and here comes american boxer Eric Molina who is a pretty decent fighter, probably the highest rated Joshua is coming up against so far in his career.
Anthony Joshua vs Eric Molina Purse Payouts ?
Like we mentioned before, this fight was a backup plan as Eddie Hearns and camp were deep in negotiations with Klitschko for a £30million worth of mega fight but due to Klitschko injury fight was put on hold and with that also the biggest potential purse for Joshua. Now with Eric Molina, Joshua is still expected to make decent money and we take a look his potential earnings and how much a usual Joshua PPV card generate.
How much money does Anthony Joshua fight generate ? Joshua has been headling PPVs in the United Kingdom for best part of last two years and he has put himself in a place where his fight against a decent fighter can generate around £15m to £17m. For example if Sky Box Office PPV do over 500,000 buys thats around £8.5 million and he usually fights at O2 which can generate a total gate of around £3 million per fight. You can also add into it the international TV deals plus the sponsorship deals which can stretch the total revenue from the fight to around £15 million.
But thats just the revenue which is than shared by Sky, Matchroom, other fight costs and of course the opponent’s purse. While Joshua’s purse is around £1.5 to £2million. His officially disclosed purse for Dominic Breazeale was £1.5m plus the sponsorship deals with UnderArmour, Lucozade and Beats.
Now if the PPV do better numbers the eventual purse will be higher. Eddie Hearns believe Joshua-Molina will easily reach 500,000 ppvs in the UK which put Joshua in a good position to clear another £2 million from a relatively risk free fight.
|Anthony Joshua||Expected to clear atleast £2 million plus the sponsorship money|
|Eddie Alvarez||£500,000 guaranteed|
