Deontay Wilder is one of the most polarizing boxers to ever set foot on the ring. Of course, with such high regard for the guy, it’s only natural to wonder what Deontay Wilder’s net worth in 2020 looks like. After all, he has placed in Forbes twice this year with #59 in Celebrity 100, 2020 and #20 in The World’s Highest-Paid Athletes, 2020. Here, we crunch the numbers and calculate how much exactly his net worth is this 2020.
Deontay Wilder’s net worth in 2020 (estimate): $40 million
According to Wealthy Persons, Deontay Wilder’s net worth in 2021 is $40 million.
This is a bit lower than his accumulated wealth from 2020 which was $46.5 million. This may indicate that he has accumulated liabilities worth around $16.5 million. What’s the reasoning behind this? Well, we’re betting that he doesn’t have much debt considering that he doesn’t need to borrow money in the first place. Therefore, he must have spent a ton on liabilities such as luxury cars. After digging around, he apparently owns amazing cars such as a Gator-skin Lamborghini Aventador, Rolls Royce Phantom Convertible VII Drophead, Rolls Royce Cullinan, Polaris Slingshot, Metallic Hummer H2, Dodge Challenger, and a Suzuki Hayabusa. No wonder.
The Bronze Bomber made the bulk of his wealth this year through salary and winnings amounting to $46 million. In addition, his endorsements also give him a small boost of $500,000 with his biggest sponsor being Everlast and Recover 180. In totality, his wealth this year sits at $46.5M. This puts him ahead of football icon Tom Brady, basketball superstar Kyrie Irving, tennis legend Rafael Nadal, pop artist Rihanna, actor Will Smith, rapper Travis Scott, and comedian Kevin Hart. Needless to say, Wilder is making so much bank that he has surpassed even the biggest names of the world.
Nevertheless, this is still a significant amount of wealth that was acquired in a quick fashion of just around 10 years as other world-class athletes need more than a decade just to bag around the same amount. In addition, the sudden spike in salary and winnings this year may also hint that the best for his bank account is still yet to come even at the age of 35 years old. If you take a look at his endorsements, it’s still a bit on the skinny side compared popular athletes such as LeBron James and Tiger Woods who typically make more from endorsements compared to their actual salary and winnings. This may be attributed to his less marketable personal brand which only reaches 2.8 million total followers across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Thus, this leaves him with a lot of room for improvement with regards to consumer reach over the next few years if he decides to step up his endorsement and social media game. It’s safe to say that he could compound his wealth exponentially if he takes this course of action.
On the other hand, it also puts it into the perspective that Wilder is more focused on building his wealth through boxing, rather than endorsements and sponsors. This respectfully shows his utmost dedication to the sport that only few athletes share.
All in all, Wilder has built an immense bankroll that others can only dream of that puts him above even some of the biggest names in the sports and celebrity world. While his lavish lifestyle and weak social media presence has made a little dent, it’s still minuscule compared to the rate of his cash flow. Look to him to compound his wealth exponentially for the years to come every time he puts the gloves on.
