Caleb Plant vs Canelo Alvarez Purse, Payout, Prize Money And Salary
This is one fight you cannot miss as both Plant and Alvarez will give it their all to win the bout. Plant has won the IBF (International Boxing Federation) and is ranked as the world’s second-best super middleweight by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Boards, third best by ESPN and The Ring and fifth best by BoxRec.
Coming to Alvarez, the Mexican has won numerous titles like- the World Boxing Association (WBA) Super, World Boxing Council (WBC), World Boxing Organization (WBO), along with The Ring super middleweight title.
The fun part about this particular bout is that the winner will earn the title of the first undisputed super middleweight champion in the history of the sport. Now, about the purse and payout of the two participants, it’s the popular verdict of the fans that PBC (premier boxing champions) is spending way too much just on a single 168-lb unification main event bout.
So Canelo Alvarez will be getting a purse of $40 million, whereas “Sweet Hands” Plant, as he is famously nicknamed will earn a purse of $10 million. This means the fuse of the purses of both the fighters equals $50 million alone.
Because of the fat payout, Bob Arum from Top Rank is of the opinion that PBC will have major difficulties in stacking undercards fights because of the Plant vs Alvarez bout. Not only that, many believe that because of Plant’s inferiority to Alvarez in the boxing world, the fight will not be able to churn out enough PPV numbers.
Net worth of Caleb Plant: $2 million
