Follow Us

Francis Ngannou will seemingly make double of what he made against Tyson Fury when he steps inside the ring against Anthony Joshua on March 8.

Following his split from Dana White’s UFC, Ngannou returned to professional fighting by making his boxing debut against ‘The Gypsy King’ in October 2023. He put on a spectacular performance, knocked down Fury, and bagged a whopping $10 million purse.

Taking center stage in Saudi, he will now compete in his second pro-boxing fight against ‘AJ’, and can possibly score his maiden victory in the sport.

Unlike Tyson Fury, ‘AJ’ isn’t undefeated and has been cracked three times in his pro career. Hence, Francis Ngannou already has a blueprint of what needs to be done inside the ring. As for his paycheck, the ex-UFC champion is set to bag another million-dollar-plus check before returning to MMA.

Anthony Joshua vs Francis Ngannou Purse: How Much Will Both Boxers Make?

Being the A-side in the sport, Anthony Joshua will rake more than Francis Ngannou on March 8. The Briton will reportedly secure $50 million guaranteed for the fight. Meanwhile, ‘The Predator’ will bag his biggest payday ever a guaranteed $20 million sum.

All of these numbers will increase after adding the PPV sales, sponsorships, and other contractual benefits. That said, Ngannou’s total earnings from this fight can go close to $30 million or more in the fight. He has vowed to make his comeback to MMA with the PFL.

Ngannou looks likely to face Renan Ferreira on that occasion. However, he needs to tackle ‘AJ’ over anything at the time. Upon beating Joshua, he can be a world title contender in boxing, amassing more stardom and money in MMA too.

Francis Ngannou made Tyson Fury look vulnerable and scored the only knockdown in the clash. Now, ‘AJ’ has the chance to re-establish his dominance by beating Ngannou, while the former UFC star will try to assert his own. This makes the bout even more intersting  and a financial feast for both parties involved.
