Alvarez and Plant are set to go up against each other this November, know the payout, purse and prize money of Caleb Plant vs Canelo Alvarez
IBF super middleweight champion Caleb Plant will face the Mexican counterpuncher Canelo Alvarez in a 12-round boxing match on Saturday, 6th November, 2021 on pay per view, presented by Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) and Canelo Promotions. The MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada will be the venue. Read on to know an estimate of the purse and salaries Caleb Plant and Canelo Alvarez are expected to make.
Canelo Alvarez vs Caleb Plant Payout And Purse
All the titles held by Plant and Alvarez will be on the line. These include the IBF (International Boxing Federation) title held by Plant, and the World Boxing Association (WBA) Super, World Boxing Council (WBC), World Boxing Organization (WBO) and The Ring super middleweight titles held by Alvarez. The winner will be hailed as the first undisputed super middleweight champion in boxing history.
When it comes to the purse and payouts of these two boxers, many feel that PBC is playing a huge gamble spending so much on a single 168-lb unification main event fight. While Canelo is being paid a purse of $40 million, Sweet Hands Caleb Plant will receive a purse of $10 million; such that their combined purses stand at $50 million alone. Bob Arum from Top Rank believes that PBC will have a hard time stacking undercard fights with such a hefty payout.
The reason why the doubt that this main event match won’t sell enough PPV numbers is the difference in star power between Plant and Alvarez. Despite having a lot of accolades to his name and remaining undefeated with a record of 21 wins, 12 KOs and 0 losses, Caleb Plant is still considered inferior to Alvarez. The Mexican has a whopping record of 56 wins, 38 KOs, 1 loss and 2 draws and currently tops the Ring Magazine’s pound-for-pound list of fighters.
What is the 2021 net worth of Caleb Plant and Canelo Alvarez?
Caleb Plant has an estimated 2021 net worth of $2 million. Canelo Alvarez, being one of the highest-paid boxers, has a net worth of $140 million.
