In 2016 Joshua fought against then IBF World heavyweight champion Charles Martin. The American won the title in a fight where his opponent, the defending champion Vyacheslav Glazkov, suffered a leg injury during the fight and could not continue thus crowning Martin the new titleholder.
According to reports, which have not been officially confirmed, Martin got paid around £3-5 million for the fight against Joshua who won by knockout in the second round.
Hearn replied back that Parker’s is ‘incorrect’.
