Mike Tyson tops annual list of highest-paid boxers

In 2021 it looked like the boxer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (November 28) that Tyson is the highest-paid boxer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between October 2022 and October 2023, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American boxer has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Tyson Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondertyson - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Mike) and a fashion line called “Mike Tyson Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Mike fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
