DEONTAY WILDER has pocketed £36.5million already in 2020 despite losing the world title.
However only £400k of that staggering amount has come from endorsements.
The American heavyweight was quids in after his rematch against Tyson Fury in February, which he lost.
After pay-per-view buys were totalled up, both he and the Gypsy King, who won via seventh round TKO, took home around £20m apiece.
Britain’s other heavyweight king Anthony Joshua edges out the Bronze Bomber in the rankings after pocketing £37.5m.
AJ received a larger paycheck when it came to endorsements with £8.8m from sponsors to go with his £28.7m prize winnings.
A reason behind WIlder’s lower income from brand partnerships is down to his followers on social media.
He has around a combined 2.8m followers across his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – which is dramatically lower than Joshua’s 17m.
Still, despite being pipped in the earning stakes, it has still been one of the most-lucrative years money-wise for the Alabama-native.
The ex-champ looked unstoppable until he climbed into the ring with Fury for their rematch following a controversial draw in their first meeting in December 2018.
Wilder will have an opportunity to regain the WBC strap when he faces Fury in a trilogy fight before the end of the year.
And if he can finally overcome the Brit then he could be quids in again next year should he have a unification showdown with AJ.
