Where does Anthony Joshua sit on boxing’s reported rich list with the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez?

Anthony Joshua will add even more millions to his considerable fortune come December, but still has some way to go to top the latest reported rich list.

Joshua is seeking to regain his world heavyweight titles in Saudi Arabia against Andy Ruiz Jr, who stunned the boxing world when he beat the Brit back in June.

Despite that loss, ‘AJ’ is believed to have been once again handsomely paid, earning an alleged £20million for his troubles, although his final cheque may well have increased once pay-per-view buys were added.

Before this, he is said to have banked £8m for his win over Alexander Povetkin and £13m for going the distance with Joseph Parker.


However, top spot on this SunSport estimated net worth list, compiled using figures from websites such as Forbes, goes to boxing legend and undefeated superstar Floyd Mayweather.

A five-weight world champion, Mayweather has never been shy in being ostentatious with his wealth, accumulated through several lucrative fights against the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

He is said to have made a staggering £435m, though this could be considerably more due to business ventures etc.


10. Anthony Joshua – £43m

That figure will rise once the sand settles in the Middle East, as Joshua prepares for the biggest fight of his career.

As well as earning from his exploits in the ring, the 30-year-old has sponsorship deals with the likes of Lucozade, Dre Beats and Under Armour.

9. Wladimir Klitschko – £47m

A man who shared the ring with Joshua in an epic eleven-round clash at Wembley in 2017, Klitschko reigned supreme in the heavyweight division for nearly a decade.

Sponsorships deals with Hugo Boss and several German companies push the Ukrainian into this top 10.

8. Vitali Klitschko – £62m

Currently Mayor of Kiev and head of the Kiev City State Administration, Vitali is the elder of the Klitschko brothers.

He was a dominant force in his own right during a career in which he was never knocked down or out, before retiring in 2012.

7. Canelo Alvarez – £73m

Considered by many to be boxing’s poster boy, Canelo signed an ‘historic’ contract after agreeing a $365m deal with streaming service DAZN last year.

He has lost just once in 55 fights and will challenge for a belt in a fourth weight division when he takes on Sergey Kovalev.

6. Sugar Ray Leonard – £93m

One of the best and most popular boxers of all time, Leonard competed from 1977 to 1997 and is now a motivational speaker.

He has been on major US TV shows such as Dancing With The Stars and The Contender.


5. Lennox Lewis – £109m

Britain’s greatest ever boxer, Lewis remains the last heavyweight to hold the undisputed title and saw off every challenge in his legendary career.

It was reported that he made $18m from his fight with Mike Tyson and $7m from beating Vitali Klitschko.


4. Manny Pacquiao – £148m

A huge part of the eight-weight world champion’s earnings come from the ‘Fight of the Century’ with Mayweather, in which ‘Pac-Man’ is said to have earned $100m.

3. Oscar De La Hoya – £155m

‘Golden Boy’ generated hundreds of millions in pay-per-view income and was a star in the sport for much of the 1990’s and early 2000’s.

It’s claimed that he made $52m from his loss to Mayweather in 2007 and now runs his own promotional firm, Golden Boy Promotions, who represent Canelo.


2. George Foreman – £233m

The oldest heavyweight champion ever, Foreman has made much of his fortune from selling the naming rights to the George Foreman grill for a reported $138m in 1999.


1. Floyd Mayweather – £435m

Consistently named the highest paid athlete even in retirement, Mayweather has made a huge sum of money during his 50-0 career and even more impressively without the same level of sponsors as other names on this list.

Mayweather Promotions allowed all revenue to go through the fighter himself as he landed mega paydays against Pacquiao and Conor McGregor.
