Respected snooker umpire Jan Verhaas reportedly has a larger net worth than former Love Island star, and professional boxer, Tommy Fury.

Verhaas has a reported net worth of $1.5million (£1.15million), according to The Dutchman began his career in 1993, after a lacklustre snooker career, and by 2003 he had become the first man from outside of the UK to umpire a World Snooker Championship final.

Since then the Dutchman has umpired the World Final, and he was in control of all three Masters finals which the late Paul Hunter won. Verhaas is perhaps snooker's most famous official, and he has the net worth to prove it.

Fury, on the other hand, shot to fame in 2019 when he starred on Love Island.

The Brit, and his girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague, didn't win the competition, but the cameras continued to follow Tyson Fury's half-brother after he left the villa. And Fury has started to carve out a boxing career in his own right before a proposed bout with Jake Paul collapsed.

Fury had been set to earn a pretty penny from the bout, but according to, his net worth is estimated at around $1million (£700,000).

Verhaas hit the headlines in January when he made a rare mistake when officiating John Higgins’ Master's match with Zhao Xintong.

The Dutchman put the green back on the wrong spot as the crowd laughed, and an embarrassed Verhaas rectified his mistake. Eurosport commentator Alan McManus said: “A rare mini mistake from Jan, that doesn’t happen very often… No matter.”
