Former world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, 32-year-old Briton, after much deliberation, which among other things influenced the postponement of the fight with Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, decided with whom it is better to continue his career, reports talksport com.
His contract with British broadcaster Sky Sports had come to an end and Joshua had to make a choice whether to continue with his previous partner or sign a new one. As a result, Joshua accepted the proposal of DAZN, which is for at least three years, maximum of five years.
Under the contract, Anthony would fight two fights a year. The total guaranteed payout for the period of cooperation with DAZN is in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Plus bonuses from PPV sales.
Let’s remind, earlier it was informed, that his rematch with Usik will take place in August. The first fight took place in September at Wembley (London, England). The Ukrainian won by a decision of the judges but is forced to give a rematch,because such a clause was written in his contract.
