Haye earned less from Tony Bellew fight than Cristiano Ronaldo earns in one week

David Haye took less home for his fight against Tony Bellew than Cristiano Ronaldo earns in one week at new club Al Nassr.

Haye and Bellew clashed in the ring for a second time in 2018, and both fighters raked in a guaranteed £2.5million each for the bout, JOE reported. But the handsome sum that the British heavyweights commanded for the fight that culminated in Haye's retirement after Bellew pounded him in five rounds, doesn't compare to what Ronaldo's poised to accumulate every week in Saudi Arabia.

The 37-year-old penned an eye-watering £173million contract with the uber-wealthy Saudi side last week. And this means he'll earn a staggering £3.6m at the end of each seven-day period, Metro reported, blowing Haye's purse for the Bellew fight out the water.

When broken down further, Ronaldo will rake in £514,000 a day, £21,000 an hour, and £357 a minute. But the financial differences won't bother Haye who's occupied by his relationship with two other women, with one being ex-The Saturday's singer Una Healy, and model Sian Osbourne who completes the 'throuple.'

Ronaldo on the other hand is set to treble his net worth from £410m to £1.3billion if he stays at Al Nassr for the duration of his contract. But Ronaldo seems to think he's worth every penny of the exorbitant figure he's on course to earn in the Middle East.

Speaking on his "unique deal", he mused during his unveiling at the club: "I’m a unique player, it’s good to come here. I beat all the records there, I want to beat a few records here. This contract is unique, but I’m a unique player, so for me it’s normal."

But despite his eye-watering deal, Ronaldo still isn't the richest player in the world. That title belongs to a relatively unknown player named Faiq Bolkiah who is 15 times richer than the former Man United ace, and boasts a net worth of £20billion.
