He earned $2.5million form his recent fights against Luis Ortiz and Bermane Stiverne. It was quite a significant improvement over the $900,000, which the boxer made from his fight against Gerald Washington back in February 2017.
So far his win against Artur Szpilka in 2016, where he took home $1.5 million, has been considered one of his highest earnings.
Deontay has not enlisted any house or other properties to his name. He drives a black Lamborghini and is also been sighted posing in front of a Rolce Royce which would have cost him around $305,800 - $339,775.
