Revealed: The Top 10 Fighters Who Have Made The Most Money Per Punch In Boxing

UFC superstar Conor McGregor has beaten rival Floyd Mayweather to be named the fighter with the most money earned per punch inside the boxing ring.


BonusFinder has used purse estimates and punch stats data compiled from BoxRec to determine which fighters have profited the most from each successful punch landed.


According to the website, McGregor made an astonishing £65m from his super-fight with Mayweather in Las Vegas.

The 'Notorious,' who lost to Dustin Poirier upon his UFC return last month, managed to throw 430 punches and landed 111.

McGregor's earnings per punch stand at a staggering £589,640 (for the ones that landed), putting him well clear of Mayweather in the rankings.

Mayweather notched up an unblemished 50-0 professional boxing record before retiring from the sport in 2017.


And the 43-year-old American star pocketed a whopping £622,930,000 across his legendary boxing career.

BonusFinder found that Mayweather threw 4,402 punches, with 1,831 landing on target.

The boxing legend's earnings per punch came in at £340,213, while fellow icon Mike Tyson was third with £275,000.
