On Saturday night, under the lights of Wembley Stadium, Anthony Joshua smacked seven bells out of Wladimir Klitschsko to win the IBF, WBA and IBO world heavyweight titles.

90,000 people witnessed the continuing rise of Britain’s favourite boxer, who has now won all 19 of his professional fights.

The victory saw him earn an estimated £15 million (totalled from ticket sales, pay-per-view costings, and sponsorship money), and if boxing promoter Barry Hearn is to be believed, Joshua could be a ‘bigger brand than David Beckham’.

Hearn said: “He’s already a wealthy man. He could easily be the first billionaire in boxing. He’s still young. At 27 he has at least ten years ahead of him in the ring and if he keeps winning the money will keep coming.”

The prize money received could help pay off a rather tasty £150,000 gift which the Brit recently received – his new Range Rover.

Joshua was given his new toy before the fight – the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic has a specially tuned 5.0-litre V8 engine, and can clock up 0-60 in just 5.1 seconds. It packs a punch about as powerful as AJ himself.

He’s chosen all the detail himself, from the fabric on the seats to the alloys on the car – it really is the definition of personalisation.

Joshua, in a display of courtesy to his car’s creators, said: “I spend a lot of time on the road travelling to Sheffield during my training camps so I am incredibly grateful to Land Rover and the SVO team for their assistance.

“It’s the pinnacle of luxury and performance and it has been a pleasure to partner with the SVO team to create a version unique to my tastes.”

Joshua will not only have his sights set on the road, but to his next fight. Klitschko has offered up the rematch (and arguably deserves it), but Tyson Fury has also accepted AJ’s offer for a fight.

Fury has also previously defeated Klitschko, so maybe it makes sense that these two go toe-to-toe to find out who’s best.
