Canelo vs. GGG: What is Gennady Golovkin’s net worth?

Gennady Golovkin is going to face Canelo Álvarez on Saturday, Sept. 17 in Las Vegas. This is the net worth of the Kazakh fighter before the big showdown.

Así es la fortuna de Gennadiy Golovkin antes de la tercer pelea con Canelo Álvarez

One of the great boxing trilogies comes to an end on Saturday, September 17. Canelo Álvarez returns to the ring after a tough loss to Dmitry Bivol that leaves a stain on his career. Now, he again faces one of the most dangerous opponents he has ever fought: Gennady Golovkin.

‘GGG’ wants to show that the defeat he suffered in 2018 against the Mexican was just a fluke, and he knows he now has a great opportunity because Canelo’s defeat in May proves that he is not invincible.

The Kazakh has an impressive record of 42 wins, a draw and a loss- these last two were against the Mexican. However, he comes from defeating Japanese Ryota Murata by technical knockout.

The millionaire fortune of Golovkin

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Golovkin has a fortune of $30 million dollars; that is, one sixth of what the Mexican boxer is currently worth ($180 million).

Golovkin has had many accomplishments throughout his career. These include two world middleweight championship titles. In 2019, he won the IBF and IBO titles, and he previously held the unified WBA, WBC, IBF and IBO titles for a period between 2014 and 2018.


Between June 2017 and June 2018, the 40-year-old earned $25 million in fights and endorsements. This made him one of the highest-paid athletes in the world. He earned a purse of $5 million when he first fought Álvarez in September 2017, and for the rematch in September 2018, GGG was guaranteed $15 million. He is believed to have earned a total of $30 million from each fight with Canelo due to PPV percentages he received.
