After Anthony Joshua was speculated to have received $85,000,000 (about N29billion) for defeating Kubrat Pulev on Saturday night, December 12, Nollywood actress Grace Ama sent a strong warning to her child’s teachers not to stop him from fighting in school, IgbereTV reports.
Her post on Instagram which she captioned “I COME IN PEACE”, reads:
“Anthony Joshua collected over N29 billion yesterday night (December 12) for beating his opponent in less than 2hrs, during their match.
Any teacher that separates my child in school for fighting will hear from me and my ancestors…”
Although there are no confirmed amounts for both boxers, reports however suggest that Joshua will only earn around £6-10million (about N3-5billion) from his win over Pulev. It is 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.
