Joshua Clottey is a Ghanaian former professional boxer who competed from 1995 to 2019, and held the IBF welterweight title from 2008 to 2009. As an amateur, he competed at the 1994 Commonwealth Games.
In an interview with “Graphic Online”, the Ghanaian boxer Joshua Clottey disclosed on how he invested his money as a professional boxer to reap maximum returns.
Born October 6, 1977 (age 44-years), he said he invested his money from boxing in real estate from which he now makes a living.
Clottey explained his profitable properties in the capital include rental properties at Weija and East Legon.
The former IBF welterweight champion, is advising young boxers to invest wisely in their prime to have a better future.
“Whatever you make from fighting, you have to be very wise like me,” said Clottey, as quoted by the Graphic Sports.
“I fought Cotto and was robbed and had a bad fight against Pacquiao but when I came to Ghana, I had to do something with the money and up to now, I’m still hitting. That’s my car,”
“Even if it is a one-bedroom, it is yours and you can be there and the good thing about the money is how you handle it,” he stated.
Meanwhile, Clottey recently cautioned sportsmen against dating multiple women and reckless spending.
The former champion said; “he was still mulling an investment in boxing because many of the upcoming boxers were more interested in womanising than winning world titles.”
Clottey has been in and out of the ring for some years now but his record stands at 47 fights, five losses and 41 wins, 24 of which came by way of knockout.
