It hasn’t been officially announced how much Floyd Mayweather Jr and Logan Paul stand to be paid for their exhibition bout this weekend, but both fighters have offered indications as to what they expect to pocket from the clash.
Boxing legend Mayweather, 44, faces YouTuber Paul, 26, at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday at 8pm EDT, with pay-per-view tickets available at a cost of $49.99.
Mayweather anticipates windfall of "$100m or more"
It has been reported that Mayweather, who retired from professional boxing in 2017 with a 50-0 record, is to receive a guaranteed $10 million for taking part in the fight, and will also be paid 50% of PPV sales revenue.
Speaking to the Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast in March, 'Money' said he anticipated his match-up with Paul would net him at least $100 million.
"I can fight a fighter right now and I can guarantee myself $35 million," he said. "I can eventually probably make $50 million, for just a regular fight. Or me and Logan Paul can go out, entertain, have fun and make nine figures, $100 million or more."
Paul set for smaller payout
Meanwhile, Paul will reportedly get a $250,000 base fee, in addition to 10% of PPV sales.
The internet star, whose boxing experience amounts to a draw and a defeat against British YouTuber KSI, has told TMZ he thinks he could make up to $20 million from his bout with Mayweather.
