Kamaru Usman Net Worth
Usman reportedly has a net worth of around $3 million US dollars, according to Celebrity net worth.
This takes into account Usman’s current UFC deal, his endorsements and several fight accomplishments in the sport as a highly ranked Welterweight fighter.
Usman is reportedly looking at moving into the sport of Boxing following his MMA career, with the potential for high-earning bouts against either celebrity fighters such as Logan or Jake Paul or veteran boxing names such as Canelo Alvarez on the table.
Having these big mainstream contests would certainly up the profile of the already successful fighter, meaning that his net worth could also rise exponentially over the next few years.
Usman revealed in an interview that he wants the P4P contest with Alvarez, saying “To be honest with you, I’ll tell you what will really get the people going.
“When have you ever seen two pound-for-pound fighters in the world in their respective sports go at it?
“Who’s the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world right now?… It’s not about money, it’s about what gets me out of bed, what gets me scared! I want the chance. I want [to fight Canelo].”
