Anthony Joshua Set to Takeover Watford FC for £150M

Former heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua is in talks to acquire English Championship club Watford in a deal worth £150 million, according to reports.

Joshua, who has a net worth of £150-200 million, is considering investing in his hometown club to boost its financial and promotional standing.

Watford, owned by Italian Gino Pozzo since 2012, is seeking new investment to reposition the club.

The Championship side has been valued at £150-175 million, aligning with Joshua’s net worth.

Reports say although Joshua is not directly involved in talks, he was approached about participating in the club’s investment opportunities, with discussions described as entry-level.

Watford has engaged in talks with other parties regarding a minority stake in the club, with details of the proposal remaining undisclosed.

Joshua’s strong connections to Watford, having been born and raised in the area, make the potential investment an enticing prospect for the club and the community.
