Well god damn. That’s a lot of cash!
Sportico is reporting that Canelo Alvarez is set to make around $25 million for his title fight tonight against Billy Joe Saunders. That’s a nice bump in pay from his $10 million purse for his tilt against Avni Yildirim.
There’s no word on what Saunders will be making for the fight but it’s safe to say it will be a few million.
The event will be streamed worldwide on DAZN and on Canelo’s own TV network in Mexico. The event is expected to draw 70,000 plus at
Jerry World AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.
The odds, as of writing this, have Alvarez as a -650 favorite according to CBS Sports/William Hill. Saunders is a +450 underdog.
