- Floyd Mayweather is reportedly expected to earn nine figures from his upcoming exhibition match
- The legendary boxer’s opponent is also likely to earn the biggest payday of his career
Floyd Mayweather is back at it again with another exhibition match. The 45-year-old is set to enter the ring once again against Don Moore in Abu Dhabi tonight and as expected, “Money” is believed to be earning another multi-million purse in the process.
“Money” doing “Money” things
Unsurprisingly, Mayweather is expected to make at least another bumper eight-figure payday” from his latest exhibition bout against Moore.
It can be recalled that last June, “Money” already pocketed a reported $65 million from his exhibition match against YouTube star Logan Paul, having sold one million pay-per-views worldwide. The outcome is expected to be the same with the Moore fight with the match being supported by “huge investors, in addition to being available to purchase on pay-per-view” as well, per The Mirror.
The report adds that Mayweather could make multi-million dollars is he is set to earn “80 per cent of the final pay-per-view earnings” apart from his guaranteed purse from the match.
Nothing is concrete yet as far as how much money Mayweather can really make, but the report also noted that the undefeated boxer could “even earn in the region of nine figures” should the event managed to reach massive success.
Mayweather’s opponent will be happy too
Since the headlines were mostly about Mayweather and his possible income, some may be wondering what’s in it for his foe, Moore.
According to the report, Moore is also likely to earn “a seven-figure payday” from the match, an income which is said to be the most he has ever made in his nineteen-year tenure in the sport.
Mayweather vs. Moore is part of the “Global Titans Fight Series” which will take place in luxury places in the Middle East. The event which also features former UFC champion Anderson Silva, was originally scheduled to happen a week earlier, but was moved due to the sudden death of UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed.
