Everyone knows that professional sports stars are worth a bob or two, and David Hayes is one of the biggest names in boxing.
He has numerous titles to his name, including WBA heavyweight champion, former unified world cruiserweight champion, former European cruiserweight champion in addition to the WBA, WBC and The Ring cruiserweight titles.
Hayes is clearly very successful, but how much is his net worth?
What is David Haye’s net worth?
It’s been reported that the boxing star is worth a cool $20 million.
Haye majorly boosted his bank balance thanks to a comeback fight with Joe Fournier back in 2021, where he won his bout with ease despite not fighting since 2018.
"You have to sacrifice, you’ve gotta go to bed at a certain time, you’ve gotta cancel all of your other arrangements, put all of your other business on hold.
"That’s what I do when I’m training for a fight, everything gets put on the back burner.
"I’d only do that for PPV money, good PPV money, and that’s what he brought to the table."
Reports claimed the star received around £4 million each for the fight.
Speaking beforehand, his opponent Fournier said: "It's a huge package financially and one we couldn't turn down.
"It could be worth up to $6m (£4.3m) to me."
Not bad for a night’s work!
He also runs his own TV production company, Hayemaker Productions, and created a series called David Haye Versus.
This is all in addition to the usual sponsorships and endorsements which will bring the cash rolling in.
He also regularly appears as an expert at other fights and offers his thoughts to sports broadcasters.
A family man, Haye often shares pictures and videos of his kids, and showed them all climbing into a convertible sports car as they all wanted to go to a boxing match for the first time.
He also shares snaps from lavish holidays in Costa Rica, and posts about his new model girlfriend who is 11 years his junior.
