Boxing legend George Foreman's net worth reportedly doubles that of current heavyweight stars Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua combined – despite hanging up his gloves 24 years ago.
Foreman cemented a legacy as one of the greatest heavyweights in boxing history, first becoming undisputed champion in 1973 before winning another world title 20 years later at the age of 45.
Fury and Joshua are trying to carve out similar reputations in the sport, with the former currently reigning as WBC champion and AJ recently losing his unified titles to Oleksandr Usyk.
Daily Star Sport has taken a look at the full career earnings and net worths of the three heavyweight stars to see how they compare to one another.
George Foreman net worth
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Foreman is still worth a staggering £220million over two decades since he last stepped foot in the ring.
Little of his fortune actually comes from boxing, nevertheless, having launched his highly-successful George Foreman Grills business in 1999.
That earned him an incredible £101million at the time, and by 2009 the Grill had sold over 100 million units.
Having been paid 40 per cent of the profits from each sale, is estimated that Foreman has made over £147million from the venture, more than he ever earned through boxing.

Fury, who is set to defend his WBC title against Deontay Wilder on Sunday morning UK time, is reportedly worth an estimated £70million after dabbling in WWE as well as boxing.
The Gypsy King pocketed around £40million from his previous two outings against Wilder, while also receiving £12million for his WWE stint back in 2019.
