Who Tops Charts? Anthony Joshua’S Staggering Earnings Per Punch Revealed With Brit Raking In More Than Mike Tyson


And Anthony Joshua has posted an impressive figure despite losing his heavyweight titles to Oleksandr Usyk.

The Brit has actually racked up a higher number than legendary fighter Mike Tyson.

But it’s another icon who tops the charts thanks to his money-spinning bouts.

Boffins at Betsperts have been analysing boxing fights since 2010 – specifically those which generated more than 1million PPV buys.

And they have now revealed the best-paid bruisers based on how many punches they have landed in that time.

There’s no room for current WBC king Tyson Fury, who ranks just 22nd on the list.

And Jake Paul also doesn’t feature as none of his fights have qualified under the 1m PPV rule.

As a result, top spot has gone to none other than Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.

The legendary unbeaten American has taken on the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor.

And he’s landed a combined 1,876 punches while pocketing £448.9m in earnings.


That gives him an amazing £239,358 per punch, sending him clear of second-place McGregor.


The Irishman’s own total is £225,160, having raked in £24.98m from 111 punches.

And in third place is Joshua with £208,743.

The fan favourite has scooped £92.44m while landing 443 hits.

That also puts him ahead of icon Tyson, who has had just one fight against Roy Jones Jr.

Even so, Iron Mike hit his opponent 67 times, amounting to £124,342 per punch after an £8.33m payday.

The top five is completed by Wladimir Klitschko, younger brother of Vitali, who has £115,215 from 94 punches against AJ at Wembley in 2017.

And the top 10 is rounded off by Alexander Povetkin (£106k), Manny Pacquiao (£96k), Caleb Plant (£82k), Jones Jr (£67k) and Joseph Parker (£65k).

Interestingly, Canelo Alvarez – rated as the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet – could only make 11th place with £65,446 per punch.

Brit Amir Khan is 13th with £63,387, while Deontay Wilder is 14th with £63,173.
