Jorge Linares- Is he The Money Man?

‘El Nino de Oro Golden Boy’ Linares has been in many big fights. However, the exact picture of his net worth is not clear. Some websites cite it to be around $5.5 million, while a few reports claim it to be around $4.4 million. Whatever the actual numbers may be, Linares is clearly a multi-millionaire.

Per Sportekz, Jorge Linares bagged one of his biggest paydays in 2018 when he fought Vasyl Lomachenko. Although ‘Loma’ beat him, Linares claimed a massive $1.2 million payday. He has consistently earned over six figures. Notably, he is one of the highest-paid boxers from the South American region in the 135 lbs weight class.

Apart from his in-ring success, Linares has also been successful in his outer-ring antics. He has bagged big sponsorship deals including one from Venum. That said, boxing appears to be his primary source of finance.
