Here’s what Conor McGregor could make from fighting Floyd Mayweather.
Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather meet Saturday in Las Vegas for one of the most hyped boxing matches ever.
Accordingly, both fighters are set to cash out.
The purse split itself is confidential, but experts have estimated that the split could be in the realm of 70/30 for Mayweather, or potentially 75/25.
When you couple that with additional income streams and sponsorship opportunities, the numbers are eye-popping. Mayweather is expected to make at least $100 million as a baseline, and McGregor will make at least $75 million, according to a BoxingScene.com estimate earlier this summer.
If you’re scoring at home...that’s way, way more than he made per UFC fight.
Mayweather and McGregor will finally meet on Saturday around midnight ET at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
