The Dream stepped up to the challenge against Ferocious at the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne and outboxed the Australian, winning via unanimous decision. Furthermore, Haney even took a pay cut to fight Kambosos with a smaller guaranteed purse and PPV share, but this did not stop the undisputed lightweight champion to show off his new jewelry collection as he posted his new purchases on Instagram.

Although Haney did accept a pay cut in this fight, he still made around $2.8 million dollars plus 30% in PPV shares. This is quite low compared to Kambosos’ $10 million and 70% in PPV shares, but it is still quite a lot for the 23-year-old American boxer.

Moreover, Haney was not weary to spend his paycheck on some jewelry as he posted this on Instagram, flaunting his new collection with the caption, ” Jewelry collector in the ring & out!”

Haney currently has a net worth of $5 million and makes around $400 thousand on average per bout. His unbeaten record and long career have largely contributed to his net worth, and now that he is the undisputed champion, his average purse will only go up.

Being the undisputed lightweight champion, Haney certainly now has a target on his back, with all contenders looking to take the belts from him. However, before taking on his next challenge, The Dream must go through Kambosos once again as the Australian has activated his rematch clause and will get another shot at beating Haney.

On the other hand, Haney seems reluctant to fight Kambosos as he and many other fans feel that a rematch is unnecessary as the result of the first fight was fairly one-sided. Moreover, the champ has also shown interest in fighting the top contenders in the division like Gervonta Davis and Vasyl Lomachenko, which will definitely be interesting matchups for Haney.
