Javon Walton Net Worth

Javon "Wanna" Walton has a net worth of $1 million. His annual salary is ~$200,000 per year. He is a multi-talented American child star who can go far in the entertainment industry.

Although he is most known for his role in Euphoria, he is also a professional boxer.

His source of income comes from TV shows, web series, brand endorsements, sponsorship deals, and film acting. He's collaborated with various fitness and boxing equipment brands to make money.

Early Life

Javon Walton was born in Atlanta, Georgia on July 22, 2006. He grew up close with his twin brother, Daelo Walton. The two also have an older sister named Jayla Cookie Walton.

He was born into a well-established Christian family and practices the Christian faith.

Since he was younger, his dream was to compete in the Junior Olympics as a boxer. He started with an internet career run by his father, DJ.

His father was a boxing coach that served five years as the Vice President for USA Boxing. He now owns "OnWard," a gym in Georgia. DJ is one of the biggest boxing influences for Walton.

Although Walton spends a lot of time boxing and acting, he still values education. Reports say that Walton is an early high school graduate. He attended a local private school and was home-schooled.

Walton still has years of his early life ahead of him as he is still young.

Career

Despite being so young, Walton has a pretty impressive resume.

His passion for boxing sparked when he was just two years old watching tournaments on TV. Before going pro, he was punching couch pillows and begging his dad to take him to the gym to try boxing.

He started training at four years old after his father finally took him to the gym after plenty of begging. It was there that he met many famous boxers which made him even more interested in the sport.

When he was eight years old, he qualified for the Junior Olympics in boxing. At age 11, he was the only child in the state of Georgia to hold State Championship titles in gymnastics and boxing.

He is also the first person in Georgia to hold both champion titles at the same time.

He has won the title of the Georgia State Champion five times. He is also a four-time USA Boxing South East Regional champion.

He completed the National tournament when he was 12, becoming one of four American kids to be ranked as Elite in Tumbling and Trampoline by USA Gymnastics.

His end goal for boxing is to compete in the 2024 Olympics when he will be about 18 years old, the age that makes him eligible to compete in boxing.

More likely, he will compete in the 2028 Los Angeles games to reach his ultimate goal of winning a gold medal. When the Olympics roll around, his sole focus will be on boxing.

Acting and modeling will take a backseat until the games are complete.

Each year, he trains with his father harder and harder. The two spend weekends traveling across the country so that Walton can compete in boxing tournaments to gain more experience.
