Nigerian musician, Mr Eazi has stated his son will start boxing at the tender age of 6 months after he saw Anthony Joshua pocket almost 30 Billion Naira ($85,000,000) in his recent win over Kubrat Pulev on December 12.
21st-century fighters have been known to receive massive paychecks after their fights and British-Nigerian fighter, Anthony Joshua is one of such examples. Speculation persists that the boxer earned massively again after knocking out Pulev in the 9th round some few days ago.
Mr Eazi has reacted to the rumoured prize hoping his son starts fighting at the age of six months old in the hopes of emulating boxers like Anthony Joshua.
“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.”
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.
Joshua is set to pocket a whopping $100 million in his next fight with Tyson Fury next year.
