Adding to that, amid all his sponsorship deals, partnerships and business operations, Sparta Promotions have grown in equity once again, with the company’s value rising to £129m. 

That’s nearly a £30m rise its equity valuation for 2022, with the former heavyweight champion paying almost £7m in tax last year. 

‘When I first started, the aim was to become a multimillionaire,’ he told GQ in 2017

‘But now there are ordinary people, grandmas and granddads, who are worth millions just because of property prices. So the new school of thought is that I need to be a billionaire.

‘Being a millionaire is good, but you have to set your sights higher. If I’m making £10million from my next fight, my next target has to be making ten times that. And if I get to £100m-150m, why not go for the billion? I know self-made billionaires. It’s hard, but it’s possible.’

His story is a rags-to-riches tale of a man who grew up on a council estate before rising to stardom after success in the 2012 Olympics.
