How much money will Canelo Alvarez get for his fight against Jermell Charlo?
The undisputed super middleweight champion will have his hands full with the undisputed light middleweight champion, and will be handsomely rewarded for it.
Canelo Álvarez steps back in the ring for the second time this year on Saturday, September 30, when he will meet Jermell Charlo in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. Of the many titles that he has won at four different weight divisions, Santos Saul “Canelo” Álvarez is currently the undisputed super middleweight champion. His opponent will be stepping up two weights, which should favor the Mexican, but it isn’t as if Jermell Charlo is a fly-by-night boxer. He is the undisputed light middleweight champion, a status that he has held since 2019.
Make no mistake, Canelo will have his hands full on Saturday. And for that, he will be handsomely rewarded.
Boxing purses are notoriously difficult to calculate, more so in the modern age of Pay-Per-View television and On-Demand streaming. The final numbers are generally not known until long after the event. However, according to unofficial sources, Canelo’s cut of the pie is estimated to come in at around $50 million.
While the details of the split are not public, it would not be unusual for Canelo to have something like a 70/30 split in his favor, which could see that total rise by perhaps $30 million once the dust settles.
