Where Jake Paul ranks among richest boxers on the planet behind Floyd Mayweather

Jake Paul has made a major splash in boxing ever since he switched to the sport for the undercard of his brother's bout with KSI.

However, Paul has started to take the sweet science seriously since his first professional bout against 'Funky' Ben Askren earlier this year.

The Youtuber has since racked up three wins, keeping his record perfect.

And he has pocketed handsome purses from each fight, with eye-watering sums that are unheard of for a fighter still in their early days.

However, even with his net worth estimated at around $20million (£15million) Paul doesn't crack the top 20 wealthiest boxers list.

Paul initially made his move into social media by following his brother, Logan Paul, onto Vine.

However, after Vine shut down in January 2017 Paul had a short-acting career on the Disney show Bizaardvark before his Youtube career took off over the summer.

Paul was fired from Disney, but at this point, his Youtube career was skyrocketing to one of the most popular on the platform.

And his boxing career, Paul has reportedly become a multi-millionaire.

However, despite his handsome net worth, Paul would just miss out on the top 20, with Miguel Cotto currently sitting in 20th.

Cotto has a reported net worth of $25million, but with Paul's lucrative endorsements and earnings, he is set to bypass Cotto in the near future.

The $30million mark would see Paul hit boxers like Amir Khan while at $40million he would hit Rickie Hatton.

But Paul is still in a different league to Floyd Mayweather, who didn't earn the nickname 'Money' for nothing with his net worth believed to be around $560million.
