The Staggering Amount Jake Paul Earned From Boxing In 2021, It's 90 Per Cent Of His Overall Earnings

Jake Paul made a staggering $40 million from his three fights in 2021.

Although he's riled up a lot of people in the process, the 'Problem Child' has become one of the biggest names in boxing and been involved some of the sport's most talked about bouts in recent times (even if his pay-per-view numbers might not be entirely legit).


He's also been a part of high-profile and controversial feuds with the likes of Tommy Fury, Conor McGregor, Dana White, Jorge Masvidal and Floyd Mayweather to name just a few.

Paul, who has now moved up to 5-0 in his professional career, beat former UFC champion Tyron Woodley back-to-back after knocking out Ben Askren.

And according to Forbes, Paul collected $40 million after taxes. He also made a further $5 million from other streams such as NFTs, his YouTube channel and endorsement deals with the likes of BoohooMan.

But 90 per cent of the 24-year-old's earnings come from his boxing exploits, which puts him in second place in the Forbes YouTube rich list.

His total takings ($45 million) would have earned him a spot at No.20 in last year's highest-paid athletes list - ahead of boxing's pound-for-pound number one fighter Canelo Alvarez.

The Mexican, who Paul is desperate to meet inside the ring, is said to have made $34 million and was joint 48th.

After knocking out Woodley in devastating fashion in what his fourth fight in 13 months, Paul is set for an extended spell away from the squared circle.

Having set up his own company, 'Most Valuable Promotions', alongside former UFC Chief Financial Officer Nakisa Bidarian, Paul is to turn his hand to promoting the rumoured bout between Amanda Serrano and Katie Taylor.

The potential undisputed lightweight title fight would be co-promoted alongside Eddie Hearn and could be one of the biggest in the history of women's boxing.

Serrano, who holds the WBC, WBO, and IBO female featherweight titles, is signed to Paul's promotion and competed on his last two fight bills.
