How much is Usyk getting for Joshua rematch?

Joshua and Usyk reportedly completed the biggest ever site deal, with Saudi Arabia agreeing to pay £65m to stage the fight.

That outstripped the £50m the Saudis paid for Joshua’s rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019.

However, AJ is not set to earn as much as he did from the Ruiz bout because the purse is being split 50/50 with Usyk.

Joshua’s first fight with Ruiz was a voluntary defence, and therefore his team were able to insert a mandatory rematch clause giving him the bulk of the prize money even after he lost the first fight in Vegas.

Usyk was a mandatory challenger however, and agreed to insert a rematch clause only if the second purse was evenly split.
