The Nevada State Athletic Commission have revealed the disclosed fight purses for tonight’s blockbuster boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.
They show that Mayweather will make a guaranteed $100 million as he steps into the ring for the final time in his 50 fight career, while McGregor will take home $30 million – ten times more than he’s ever earned for a single bout in the Octagon.
However, these official numbers only tell part of the story as both men will have make far more than that once all the other potential sources of income from the fight are taken into account.
The biggest one will undoubtedly be their cuts of the pay-per-view income, with UFC President Dana White being among those who think that Mayweather Vs Pacquiao’s record of 4.6 million buys could be smashed, which would lead to both men bolstering their bank accounts by tens of millions of dollars.
Meanwhile, lucrative sponsorship deals will also be a major source of additional income for the two superstars, with Mayweather rumored to be set to make in the region of $20 million just for branding on his clothing before, during and after tonight’s event.
Overall, the estimates are that if the PPV is as successful as many believe it will be, then McGregor will cash in to the tune of around $100 million when all is said and done, while Mayweather could reach as high as $350 million by his own calcuations.
