Mike Trout is set to become the highest earning sportsman by confirming a 12-year deal with base ball club LA Angels where he will be earning $430 million.
The American baseball star will be earning way over Barcelona's Lionel Messi who earns £7.3million month and around £87.6million a year.
Boxing middle weight champion Saul Alvarez, recently signed a deal with American streaming service DAZN, worth £275 million across 11 fights in the next five years.
The Mexican fighter will be earning around £1 million a week for half a decade.
