Canelo Alvarez is anticipated to make $53 million for his title fight with Dmitry Bivol tonight, while his opponent is likely to earn roughly $5 million.
With a stern examination against Bivol at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Alvarez will return to 175 pounds in the hopes of becoming the division’s second two-time champion. In terms of commercial and combat worth, the Mexican superstar is regarded as the sport’s best fighter.
The 31-year-old will receive a guaranteed $15 million salary, which is projected to increase to $53 million depending on pay-per-view sales and gate receipts. Alvarez inked a two-fight agreement with Matchroom Boxing, with his bouts airing on DAZN pay-per-view in the United States and Canada.
Bivol will receive a guaranteed sum of $2 million, which might rise to $5 million after the fight’s income is determined. The Russian will be paid for the first time in his career, with his previous highest purses of $500,000 versus Craig Richards and Umar Salamov in his past two appearances.
King of pound-for-pound Alvarez has made a lot of money in his career, including $12 million for his fight with Floyd Mayweather before signing a $365 million agreement with DAZN. Despite the fact that he has since departed that contract, Alvarez has inked a two-fight agreement for an estimated $160 million, with a trilogy against Gennady Golovkin expected to take place in September if he can get through Bivol.
Alvarez’s most recent payout was roughly $45 million for his undisputed championship fight with Caleb Plant at 168 pounds, when he created history by becoming the first four-belt champion at that weight. On his route to the shot, ‘Canelo’ beat Billy Joe Saunders, Avni Yildirim, and Callum Smith, earning him a total $70 million.
