Tyson Fury tops annual list of highest-paid boxers
In 2015 it looked like the boxer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (January 23) that Fury is the highest-paid boxer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between December 2016 and December 2017, a nearly $50 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 British boxer has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Fury Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Wythenshawe Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderfury - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Tyson) and a fashion line called “Tyson Fury Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Tyson fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
