Oleksandr Usyk net worth 2023 – how much is boxing champ getting for fight against Dubois? | The Sun

OLEKSANDR USYK has blazed his way to the summit of boxing – and he is back in action TONIGHT against Daniel Dubois.

First winning gold at the London Olympics in 2012, to unifying the cruiserweight division and then becoming heavyweight champion, Usyk's career has already been legendary.

What is Oleksandr Usyk's net worth 2023?

Oleksandr Usyk's net worth jumped to around £45m after the Anthony Joshua rematch.

Usyk's net worth had reportedly been £10m before this year, and he will now get a 50/50 split of the £65m Saudi Arabia paid to host the fight.

This is before additional sponsorships and revenue from PPV sales of the fight.

The Ukrainian hero has had 20 fights in his pro career, with an unblemished record including 13 wins by knockout.

How much is Uysk getting for Dubois fight?

Usyk is expected to rake in £4.9million, significantly less than the £42m he earned from the Joshua rematch.

But it will still be just his fourth seven-figure sum.

Meanwhile, Dubois is set to be paid £1.6m on Saturday night – whether he produces the colossal upset or not.

That is just shy of his career-high purse – which was the £1.75m he received when he lost to Joyce three years ago.

How much did Usyk get for the Joshua rematch?

Joshua and Usyk reportedly completed the biggest-ever site deal, with Saudi Arabia agreeing to pay £65m to stage the fight.

That outstripped the £50m the Saudis paid for Joshua's rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019.

However, AJ did not earn as much as he did from the Ruiz bout because the purse was split 50/50 with Usyk.

Joshua's first fight with Ruiz was a voluntary defence, and therefore his team were able to insert a mandatory rematch clause giving him the bulk of the prize money even after he lost the first fight in Vegas.

Usyk was a mandatory challenger however, and agreed to insert a rematch clause only if the second purse was evenly split.
