Jake Paul raked in an estimated $40million from his three boxing matches in 2021.
The 5-0 (4 KOs) YouTuber-turned-boxer started the year with a record of 2-0 having fought twice on undercards in 2020.
In 2021 though, Jake became the main attraction.
According to Forbes, he earned an estimated total of $40million from his fights over the 12-month period.
His first bout saw him headline a Triller PPV against Ben Askren in April.
Jake won by first-round knockout and catapulted himself to the big stage.
He then inked a deal with US broadcaster SHOWTIME and set up his next fight against Tyron Woodley.
This time Jake was taken the distance, but beat the former UFC champion on points.
He returned to SHOWTIME for his third and final contest of 2021.
This was initially scheduled to be against Tommy Fury, however the Brit was forced to pull out due to injury.
As a result, Woodley was brought back in for a rematch in December.
Jake this time ended their saga with a conclusive KO.
He is now targeting even bigger fights in 2021.
