John Ryder has been a professional boxer since making his debut back in 2010. He has been boxing consistently for over a decade in the pro ranks, earning more and more money as his career has progressed.

More recently, Ryder’s purses for each of his fights has been growing, given the fact he is fighting better fighters in bigger boxing events. Despite losing six times in his career, Ryder is still one of the best super-middleweight on the planet. Even after his recent loss to ‘Canelo’.

Not only does Ryder have a sizeable $5 million net worth, but he is also recognised as one of the best British boxers on the planet right now. Despite not being a household name in boxing circles, Ryder has certainly worked his way up the super-middleweight rankings and deserved his shot last time out against the great Mexican.

This figure of $5 million is likely to grow for the British boxer as his career goes on too, especially after receiving a career-high payday against the Mexican cash cow at the beginning of May.
