Plus he kept Harris's lunch money. A very shrewd move indeed.

I would be shocked if hatton had earned more than naz, naz was coing the money in and through most of the 90's was the best apid sportsman in the uk.

I still think its Lewis then Hatton. Naz could have made (say) 1-1.5 million a defence in his prime (great money for a feather) but I still don't see it adding up to all those WBU defences, Zoo, Mayweather and all the Lascano revenue.

Well as naz had earned over 40 million before the barrera fight i wouldn't agree.

Well Naz would have made a mint from Adidas and all his other sponsors, take away sponsorship and I reckon Hatton takes it.

They might have been including Naz's assets as well coz apparently he's invested very well.

No breakdown but not including pbf and odlh naz was the highest earning lighter weight fighter by a mile.
Also the observer article is back in 2001 so i would be suprised if it included investments maybe sponsoship though.

The thing with Naz was that he made big money and invested if before the property price boom. For a million pounds you could get 10-15 (probably more up north) decent houses. So he had a lot of properties and their value increased 2-3 times. Nowadays with a million pound you could only get 5 decent houses.

I wish I was older so I could have had the chance to buy houses in them days , I'd be a rich bastard by now

I still think Eubank earned loads. Between 1990 and 1995 he must have been raking it in. $9m dollars is 4.5 m, now. Eubank was supposed to be on 1m a fight back then. Didn't eubank have like 24 WBO title fights or something? Still Hatton, Lewis, Hamed, Eubank, Benn all made really good money and they deserve it.
