Joshua will take him the bulk of the kitty while IBF mandatory challenger Pulev, 36, will also win his biggest purse of £4m, reports the Express.

Unified heavyweight world champion Joshua, who turns 28 on Sunday, split a £20m prize pot down the middle with Wladimir Klitschko after stopping the Ukrainian in the 11th round on April 29.

Pay-per-view sales pushed his overall commission upwards of that figure.

Joshua has a reported net worth of around £25m – but is aiming on turning that into over £1BILLION.


JOSH THE TICKET Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev tickets: When are they released, where can I buy them and how much do they cost?


Speaking before his Wembley showdown against Klitschko, 41, he said: “When I first started, the aim was to become a multi-millionaire.

“But now there are ordinary people, grandmas and granddads, who are worth millions just because of property prices. So the new school of thought is that I need to be a billionaire.

“Being a millionaire is good, but you have to set your sights higher. If I’m making £10m from my next fight, my next target has to be making 10 times that.

“And if I get to £100m-150m, why not go for the billion? I know self-made billionaires. It’s hard, but it’s possible.”

FLOYD MAYWEATHER looks dapper in some snazzy black and gold slippers… as Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson also hangs out at an LA Lakers game.

And he even brought the whole family along for pictures with sons Koraun and Zion and daughter Iyanna.

But it was Nicholson who caught the eye despite Mayweather’s enormous jacket and sparkling jacket.

The star of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and the Shining appeared to forget to do up one of the buttons on his blue shirt.

The unfortunate moment was caught on camera as he sat next to 25-year-old son Ray.

Mayweather recently hinted at a return to the boxing ring by posting a video of himself hitting a punching bag.

The 50-0 fighter has been out of action since defeating Conor McGregor in ten rounds in Las Vegas back in August.

Mayweather clearly still likes to keep himself in shape.

Then again, so relaxed was he ahead of his billion-dollar bout against McGregor that he was seen munching a burger.
