Boxing is big business and Del Boy has certainly earned his money over the past few years.
Chisora, 39, still harbours world title hopes and has fought 42 times as a professional, winning 32 of those bouts.
Never one to back down from a challenge, he's faced – and beaten – some of the biggest names in boxing over the past decade.
Chisora has gone up against Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte, Vitali Klitschko, Carlos Takam and David Haye since 2011 – and has earnt well in the process.
And he has proved that he has still got it after convincingly beating Kubrat Pulev in their gruelling grudge match.
He told the Telegraph: "The pay cheques grow very fast.
"So from £5,000 to £20,000, then £80,000 to £100,000 and then £200,000, then £500,000 then £900,000 then £1.5m.
"It keeps going up but sometimes there can be a title fight and there will be no money involved.
"I know guys that are fighting to defend their titles and they’re getting paid about £50,000.
"But you can make more money in the heavyweight game than you ever make in any other sport."
The biggest fight purses so far in his career have come against Oleksandr Usyk, where Del Boy pocketed a cool £4.4million, and his trilogy fight with Tyson Fury, where he took home £4.5million.
As of summer 2023, Chisora's net worth is estimated to be around £12m.
