It’s no secret that Anthony Joshua is the hottest ticket in world boxing these days.

With the ability to draw sellout stadium crowds of up to 90,000 people consistently in his home country, the modern boxing landscape has never seen such a prolific ticket seller.

It’s not even close.

That’s why every promoter worth his bread has been watching proceedings carefully these last few months as his current contract with Matchroom Sport and Eddie Hearn runs out later this year (in November).

However he’s not going anywhere it would appear.

The UK Sun has reported that Joshua is set to sign a one-hundred million pound (GB sterling) extension to his current arrangement with Matchroom.

Likely this is simply a year or two extension, at the very most.

Joshua is currently in talks to face WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in a huge unification showdown of all the heavyweight title belts in world boxing with an agreement close to be signed it is understood.
