He also put more focus into his music career, launching an entertainment collaborative, called Team 10.

That’s not a problem for Jake, though, thanks to his involvement in the world of combat sports — specifically, boxing. In only three fights, Paul has already made more than most professional boxers out there.
According to Paul, he made “eight figures” for fighting Nate Robinson as part of the undercard for the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. main event. He earned a salary of $690,000 for fighting Ben Askren in April 2021, and stands to earn a lot more ofter the event brought in $75-million in pay-per-view buys.

From there, the big bucks really started to roll in for Jake. His next fight was against Nate Robinson, as an undercard to the Mike-Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. fight. Paul claims he earned “eight-figures” after knocking out the former NBA star in the second round.
Next up, it was former MMA star Ben Askren trying to be the first to take down Paul. But he too would fail after getting knocked out by Jake in the first round on April 17 in Atlanta. The event, which was put together by Triller, featured names like Frank Mir and Junior Younan in the undercard.
According to an Instagram post from Jake Paul, the fight brought in 1.5-million Pay-Per-View buys and generated $75-million. Paul’s initial salary for the fight was $690,000, but he’s also expected to receive a large sum of the revenue as part of his deal as an investor in Triller.
As for his future in boxing, that’s anyone’s guess. Jake Paul is at the height of his boxing career, although you have to think he has bigger things planned ahead.
