Michael Buffer Net Worth $410 Million
Michael Buffer (born November 2, 1944) is an American ring announcer or “MC” for boxing and professional wrestling matches. He is known for his trademarked catchphrase, “Let’s get ready to rumble!”, and for pioneering a distinctive announcing style in which he rolls certain letters and adds other inflections to a fighter’s name. His half-brother is UFC announcer Bruce Buffer.
Buffer was born at St. Agnes Hospital in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to an enlisted man in the United States Navy and his wife during World War II. His parents divorced when he was 11 months of age, and Buffer was then raised by foster parents, a school bus driver and housewife, in Roslyn, Pennsylvania.
He enlisted in the United States Army during the Vietnam War at age 20 and served until age 23. He held various jobs including a car salesman, then began a modeling career at age 32 before becoming a ring announcer at age 38.
