The world classic heavyweight boxing belt unification match to find the first “absolute champion” after a quarter of a century between Tyson Fury and Usyk will take place in the early morning of Sunday, May 19 (Vietnam time). South) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It’s unclear how this fiery fight will end, but Fury just “beat” Usyk on the Forbes rankings.

According to Forbes magazine’s announcement, the list of 50 athletes with the highest income in the past year (May 1, 2023 – May 1, 2024) has exactly 3 boxers from the boxing ring. Among these, Canelo Alvarez is the boxer with the highest income.

The 33-year-old Mexican boxer fought two matches last year and won both against John Ryder and Jermell Charlo. In total, Canelo Alvarez earned 85 million dollars (equivalent to about 68 million pounds) from competition fees and other income from sponsorship and advertising contracts… Behind Canelo Alvarez is the former heavyweight champion. world Anthony Joshua, who has had a busy year. Joshua fought a total of 4 matches from April 2023 to March this year and according to Forbes’ income calculation, Joshua’s 3 matches are counted as wins against Helenius, Otto Wallin and Francis Ngannou.

In total, Joshua earned $75 million in competition fees and an additional $8 million in income from outside the boxing ring. Behind Joshua is his rival and compatriot, Tyson Fury, who is about to fight Oleksandr Usyk.

In the past year, Tyson Fury has only fought one match, which was against Francis Ngannou at the end of October last year. But even though he was only in the ring for one match, Fury still pocketed $42 million in revenue. Plus $8 million in other income, Tyson Fury is the last boxer to appear on the list of the 50 highest-paid athletes last year according to Forbes. Of course, the above ranking also means that Tyson Fury has “defeated” Usyk , the boxer in the past year only fought one match, which was a victory over Daniel Dubois at the end of August. That match only brought “extremely small” compensation for Usyk, 6 million dollars, even though the Ukrainian boxer must defend the prestigious WBA, WBO, IBF and The Ring belts.

Usyk’s inferiority to Tyson Fury on the money front will certainly continue regardless of the outcome of this weekend’s classic title unification match. It is known that the remuneration for the two boxers is divided with a “big piece of cake” of up to 70% in favor of Tyson Fury while Usyk only receives 30%.

Currently, the media is mentioning a total compensation for the two boxers of 150 million dollars, equivalent to 116 million pounds. Thus, Tyson Fury will pocket over $100 million while Usyk also earns about $45 million. With the prospect of the Tyson Fury vs Usyk 2 rematch almost certainly taking place this year, these two boxers will still make a lot of money and Fury-Usyk will both appear in the top earning athletes in Forbes’ rankings next year. .
