According to Celebrity Net Worth, the boxer has made a whooping $40 million, or roughly PS29 million. The website also reports that he owns properties in London and Glasgow.
Amir Khan is a British boxer who has won world titles at two different weight classes. He is one of only three men ever to win world championships in three different weight classes (the others are Floyd Patterson and George Foreman). Khan won his first world title in 2011 with a victory over champion Miguel Cotto. He defended it once before losing to Manny Pacquiao for another championship belt.
Khan's career-high earnings came in 2015 when he earned $8 million for two fights. One of those bouts was a world title eliminator against Kell Brook, which he lost by majority decision. Another high point for him was when he became the unified light welterweight champion when he outpointed Carl Froch in 2013. This makes him one of only four men to have their hand raised after six rounds of a fight along with Joe Louis, Harry Greb and Peter May.
He announced his retirement on November 17, 2016 after suffering his second straight loss to world champion Danny Garcia. He came back in April 2017 but didn't compete due to a shoulder injury.
When Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao eventually met in the ring on May 2, 2015, the bout became the wealthiest of all time. Despite the money it brought in ($600 million in all), the fight was not entertaining. It was a boring boxing match that went the distance. In fact, it was so uninteresting that many people stopped watching it after the first hour.
The fight had enormous expectations because of the involvement of two of the best boxers of our time. But instead of building up the fight like other big events have done before, they decided to start out with a bang by doing something no other boxer has ever done before: They fought a 12-round main event without a rest in between. No other fighter has ever done this. The only other boxer to do so was James "Gentleman Jim" Jeffries. He fought an entire series of matches without a break in 1882. All Jeffries managed to do was win three fights out of five he took part in.
Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was expected to be a blockbuster event. But early reports say that only 10 percent of those who bought tickets actually watched the fight live. This means that the majority of people who paid to see it didn't watch any of the important moments happen in front of them.
