Paul is the only fighter in the top ten and was behind only Canelo Alvarez, 31, and Tyson Fury, 33, in highest-earning boxers overall.

The social media sensation is currently 5-0 with four knockouts since his professional debut in 2020.

But he has faced criticism of his opponents and record for not yet facing a recognised pro.

Paul last fought in December in a short-notice rematch against Tyron Woodley, 40, after Tommy Fury, 23, pulled out.

He knocked out replacement Woodley, having previously beaten the ex-UFC champion on points in August.

It added to KOs over gamer ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

Paul recently announced he will return in three months time for his sixth professional bout.
