Floyd Mayweather will earn $32 million dollars when he takes the ring against Marcos Maidana on Saturday, while “Chino” will take home $3 million.
The figures were released by the Nevada Athletic Commission on Friday. “Money” will be taking home the same amount of cash he did for the first encounter in May, while Maidana doubled his number of $1.5 million.
Maidana’s purse has been known for the better part of Friday, Mayweather’s wasn’t revealed until shortly after the weigh-ins at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
The $32 million represents a small portion of what Mayweather will ultimately walk away with. The event is aired on pay-per-view, and the 47-0 boxer takes home a good portion of the revenue due to Mayweather Promotions co-promoting the fight.
