Anthony Joshua vs Jermaine Franklin is finally upon us. The pair of boxing heavyweights are set to do battle on Saturday night at the O2 Arena in the main event in the capital. But just how much is the winner expected to make from the fight?
Anthony Joshua vs Jermaine Franklin Purses
Anthony Joshua returns to action this weekend for the first time since his back-to-back defeats to Oleksandr Usyk for the unified heavyweight championship of the world. This will be Joshua’s first non-world title fight since December 2015, as he faces a tough American opponent in the shape of Jermaine Franklin.
Both men are expected to make huge sums of money for this fight. For Anthony Joshua, it is unknown the exact amount of money he is set to make for this fight. However, he reportedly earned upward of £33m for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk back in August 2022.
Of course, fighting Usyk for three world title belts is completely different from fighting Franklin for none. However, Joshua will still be making an absolute fortune here. Do not be surprised if we find out ‘AJ’ is earning upward of £10 million for this fight on Saturday night.
For Jermaine Franklin, he is expected to earn a guarantee of £800,000 for this fight against the great ‘AJ’. This is also the biggest purse of his career and it could of course increase too if he is successful. Both men are set to earn a fortune, but the question on everyone’s lips is just how much money will the winner make?

How Much Will The Joshua vs Franklin Winner Make?
Well, the answer to that question entirely depends on who wins the fight. Both men are expected to receive a different fight purse depending on which man has their hand raised. As you can probably expect, it is likely that Anthony Joshua will earn far more if he is to win than if the American claims victory.
If Joshua wins, he fight purse could be heavily enhanced with a win bonus, that is for sure. Joshua’s earnings for this fight are not set in stone, but he will earn a guaranteed purse, which is then heavily enhanced by the likes of a win bonus. As well as that, depending on the amount of people that tune in and watch the fight, ‘AJ’ could earn even more.
If it’s Jermaine Franklin who gets his hand raised at the end of the fight, he too could earn far more money than his official fight purse states. He is expected to earn £800,000 for the fight alone, with even more money up for grabs if he wins the fight, as well as money from his various sponsorship deals. The 29-year-old could earn well over £1 million for this one fight alone against Anthony Joshua if indeed he is successful. What an incentive that is!
As of today, the American is still the huge underdog to win the fight with the best sports betting apps. However, the majority of people will be back ‘AJ’ to win the fight of course. He is currently priced around 1/10 with the best UK sports betting sites to get back to winning ways this weekend from the O2 Arena.
What a fight we have on our hands from the capital on Saturday night. Finger’s crossed the actual fight lives up to the hype!
