Canelo-GGG II purses: Canelo $5M, GGG $4M

September 14, 2018

The Nevada Athletic Commission have disclosed the purses for this Saturday’s long-awaited rematch between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.

Canelo will make a disclosed $5 million to show while GGG is guaranteed $4million.  It is anticipated that both will make much more than the disclosed amounts based on contractual agreements which likely includes a cut of the PPV buys.

Corrected. I had the payouts from last year.  Here are the undercard payouts per Kevin Iole


Notably, Chocolatito Gonzales makes his return and will make $200,000 to face Moises Fuentes.  Jaime Muniga will make $250,000 to defend his WBO Super Welterweight Title.

Payout Perspective:

The reported payouts for the main event are almost the same from their last fight.  The reported guarantees show that negotiations for the rematch helped a little but its not a 50-50 split.  Perhaps GGG made up for it the non-disclosed payouts but we may not know until the PPV buys are all tabulated.

Got something to say?
