It is reported that both David Benavidez and Caleb Plant will bag 50% from the PPV revenue. Considering the popularity of these fighters and rivalry between them, the PPV sales can reach skyrocketing figures and hence, it is estimated that the net payout of each fighter can be anywhere between $2,000,000 to $4,000,000. Additionally, some sources have revealed that the confirmed purse of each fighter will be $500,000.
With the PPVs selling for $74.99 each, it can be said that there might also be a considerable PPV split in the picture and Plant had previously earned $10 million in his fight against Canelo Alvarez.
David Benavidez feels he has done enough to capture the attention of undisputed champion Saul Alvarez after recording one of the biggest victories of his career by crushing former champion Caleb Plant. The Mexican Monster has been the pound-for-pound king’s biggest rival for just over three years, but Canelo has declined to take on the challenger because he believes there isn’t enough sports merit in the fight.

David Benavidez vs Caleb Plant: match events & post-match reactions
As expected from his fighting style style, Benavidez had a sluggish beginning and let Plant work freely for the first five rounds and fell for every single tie-up. However, Benavidez began undermining Plant in the fifth round with power punches, and by the ninth round, the punishment was too much.
Nonetheless, the former champion’s corner opted to continue fighting until the end. Although his face was covered in blood, Plant gave his best in the 12th round before the final bell signaled the end of the fight. After observing Benavidez’s dominance over the second-half of the fight, judges awarded him with an unanimous decision by scores of 115-113, 116-112, 117-111.
