Reports have said that Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury will share the hosting fee in Saudi Arabia ahead of their big fight.

Recall that the country recently proposed $150million as site fee to host both boxers this summer.

According to ESPN’s Mark Kriegel, the site fee is upwards of $150million and if finalised as expected, each boxer will make $75million from the site deal alone, with the rest of the money (several million dollars) set for expenses such as undercard fights.

Mark added that the biggest site fee is currently $60million, and the fight involved Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua.

His words, “The proposed site fee is in excess of $150million.”

“Each fighter under that provision will be guaranteed $75million.”

“There’ll be another $3-5million for expenses and the undercard.”

“To put this in context – the biggest site fee I’ve ever heard of [was] $60million for Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua.”


Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, OBE (born 15 October 1989) is a British professional boxer who is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, having held the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles since December 2019 and previously between 2016 and June 2019. At regional level, he held the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from 2014 to 2016.

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua was born on 15 October 1989 in Watford, Hertfordshire, the son of Yeta and Robert Joshua. His mother is Nigerian, while his father is of Nigerian and Irish ancestry. Joshua’s Nigerian background can be specifically traced back to the Yoruba people, amongst whom he is of aristocratic rank.

His cousin, Ben Ileyemi, is also a professional boxer. The pair made their professional debuts together in 2013. Joshua spent some of his early years in Nigeria as a boarding school student at Mayflower School in Ikenne.

Following his parents’ divorce when he was 12, he returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, he was called “Femi” by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name, Oluwafemi. He excelled at football and athletics and broke his school’s Year Nine 100 m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.
