Mike Tyson is inarguably amongst the most popular boxers of all time. ‘Iron’ has made multiple headlines for his controversial engagements as well as his achievements in the ring. One of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, he was the undisputed world champion from 1987 to 1990 and also claimed his first title at the age of 20.

Tiger Woods, on the other hand, was a child prodigy and still holds multiple golf records. Woods was the world number 1 for a staggering 683 weeks and has 82 PGA tour wins to his name, a record he holds alongside Sam Snead.

He dominated the sport in the first decade of the 21st century and is majorly responsible for the popularity of the sport.

Is Tiger Woods richer than Mike Tyson?

Despite the popularity and achievements of Mike Tyson, his net worth is not a very impressive number. According to celebrity net worth, his current estimated net worth is $10 million. Unfortunately, many believe that Tyson has squandered all his earnings on lavish and poor lifestyle choices. At the peak of his career, he had a fortune of $300 million to his name.

In 2003, he filed for bankruptcy and was as much as $23 million in debt. In 2020, Tyson signed a contract with fellow boxer Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition fight. From this alone, Tyson is said to have earned $10 million dollars.

On the contrary, Tiger Woods’ net worth is a massive $800 million, as per celebrity net worth. Since the start of his career, he has earned $1.5 billion. The highest-earning golfer of all time, Woods also has a $53 million mansion in Florida, which has a mini-golf course, tennis courts, and a swimming pool.

One thing they both have in common is charity. The TGR Foundation seeks to empower underprivileged minorities through education. The Mike Tyson Cares Foundation, similarly, commits to providing a better quality of life to the lower-income communities.

To conclude, Woods is definitely the richer athlete. However, they both have established a legacy so deep in their sports, it’s surely no match to live up to. What do you think?
