    According to a recent report by the Daily Mirror: Sport, who have been looking over the recently-filed accounts of Anthony Joshua's Sparta Promotions, the heavyweight champion has officially become the country's first £100 million boxer.
    What does this indicate about how big a star AJ is or will be in the UK?

    He didn`t have the boxing IQ and no way could a Brit in the lighter divisions make that kind of impact, Khan wasn`t use in any adverts. AJ`s PPV ratings were far higher than Khan`s and he broke stadium records for attendance, Khan never fought at wembly stadium.

    I wonder how far off Fury’s #s are.

    Can the Daily Mirror value investments in the crystal meth and drive tarmacing industry?

    Seems like Joshua is a bigger star than Canelo atm. Can fight an absolute no name like Pulev and sell over 600k buys in both UK and US.

    That's good. When any athlete in a sport makes more it begins to open the door for a lot of fighters even in the lighter divisions, too.

    I remember when Sugar Ray Leonard and Wilfred Benitez were the first boxers below heavyweight to make $1 million for a fight. No one below heavyweight had ever done that before. I think Leonard got $1 million and Benitez got $1.2 million or something like that. Many welterweight title fights back then involved guys making like $50,000.

    Sot it was a monumental jump in pay. For a comparison, on the undercard, Hagler and Antuofermo fought. Hagler got $40,000.

    Then Leonard ushered that in, and within two fights, Leonard was making $10 million against Duran the first time. And guys in the lower weight classes saw their purses begin to go up and some started earning a million dollars a fight, too.

    Joshua does a lot of body building competitions on the side. And sets up phony children charities, and pockets the money.

    It´s crazy how guys like Devin ****ing Haney make a cool mil per fight.
    Or what Berto was making... Dude barely sold any tickets yet made millions(Al Haymon scammed HBO with him).

    Guys now are making crazy money.

    A good chunk of that cash will be the Mecca stink bomb.

    Also....women fantasise about BBCs and giant black men.

    They dont fantasise about 5ft8 glass jawed boxers with delusions of grandeur who get caught tossing it on Skype.
