Jake Paul Reportedly made $40 million from boxing in 2021


Forbes just released a report confirming that youtuber Jake Paul made an estimated $40 million in 2021. Jake Paul has had a short career due to him being only 25 years old but during that time the actor, musician, youtuber took to finding his niche and his career has skyrocketed since. Jake who is famously related to brother Logan Paul started his acting career in 2013. After being on YouTube for a short time he was signed to the Disney channel. Jake starred in the Disney series Bizaardvark for two seasons and was subsequently released from that contract.

After being released from his Disney Chanel contract in 2016 Paul went right back to you-tubing, creating a multimedia company that focused on marketing and investments: Team 10. A year later in 2017 Paul teamed up with the Iconic rapper Gucci Mane to release his first song Its Everyday Bro.

Forbes estimates that Paul raked in a combined $40 million before taxes from his three boxing victories in 2021, which ran his record to 5-0 overall. With an additional $5 million from his other endeavors, including his videos, Paul comes in at No. 2 on the list of the highest-paid YouTube stars for 2021, returning to the list for the first time since 2018.

That $45 million total would have landed him at No. 20 on last year’s Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid athletes, ahead of the only boxer to crack the top 50 of that ranking, Canelo Alvarez, who tied for 48th with $34 million. It also would have pushed him past established sports stars like Phil Mickelson ($41 million) and Novak Djokovic ($34.5 million). -Forbes

In 2018 after teasing to YouTube fans the urge to enter into the boxing world Jake booked his first fight with Deji Olatunji and won during the fifth round of that fight. Since then Paul has had 5 professional fights and he won all five fights. in 2019 Jake fought against fellow youtuber AnEsonGib. In 2020 after rescheduling a few times Jake matched up with basketball player Nate Robinson which led to an early knockout for Robinson. Jake also matched up with MMA champion Ben Askren which made an estimated $1.45 million in pay per view. In 2021 Paul had two fights which totaled his income of $40 million. His Opponent in 2021 was UFC Welterweight Tyron Woodley which Jake originally beat by a split decision that saw Paul as the winner with just over 2 points. Jake had a second fight with Woodley which he won after a 6th round knockout.

Most seriously, he was accused of sexual assault by TikTok personality Justine Paradise in April; Paul has vehemently denied the accusation. -Forbes

Although both boxers have yet to schedule a fight with Paul, Mike Tyson is eager to meet the young up and comer in the ring.
