Mayweather’s record $41.5M purse in place

Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. Will indeed receive a record purse of $41.5 million for his junior middleweight unification showdown with fellow titleholder Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The contract was filed Wednesday with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, executive director Keith Kizer said.

Mayweather confidant Leonard Ellerbe exposed Mayweather’s purse last week, though it was not official till the contract was filed with the commission.

Alvarez’s contact calls for him to get a fight-night check for $5 million, Kizer expounded. However, the total is extremely deceiving. Alvarez has been guaranteed millions more based mostly on the massive revenue the Showtime PPV broadcast is expected to generate, according to his promoter, Richard Schaefer of Whizz kid Promotions.

While Schaefer wouldn’t say what Alvarez’s minimum total was, a source involved in the promotion claimed he will earn at least $12 million.

“He will finish up making more than $5 million,” Schaefer expounded. “He is making a significant upside thanks to the pay-per-view. It’s inconsequential that he’s getting $5 million [on the night of the fight] because he’s going to make millions and millions more because I guaranteed him money on the pay-per-view, but I don’t want to say how much.”

Schaefer said the quantity of buys the pay-per-view has to sell for Alvarez to reach his upside figure is “a low number, so he will make lots more than $5 million.”

In the much-anticipated co-feature, unified junior welterweight titleholder Danny Garcia of Philadelphia will earn a career-high $1.5 million to protect his belts against interim titlist Lucas Matthysse of Argentina, who will earn a career-high $800,000, according to their Nevada contracts.

In a 3rd title fight on the card, junior middleweight titlist Ishe Smith of Las Vegas will earn $250,000 for his first defense, a compulsory against challenger Carlos Molina of Chicago, who will receive $100,000.

Mayweather vs. Canelo 30-day weigh-in

Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez: Canelo is 166.8 for WBC 30-day weigh-in

Canelo Alvarez considered in at 166.8 bodyweight for the WBC’s compulsory 30-day weigh-in. In other terms, there’s another 15 bodyweight to go.

With the Floyd Mayweather – Canelo Alvarez super occasion only monthly away (time has traveled, huh?), the WBC organised it’s compulsory 30-day out weigh-in for the competitors. Normally, when it comes to the bodyweight, all sight are on Canelo who will have to reduce a lb and a 50 percent more than what he was for the Austin, tx Fish battle to help create the 152 lb catchweight. It will need Alvarez to be at the smallest bodyweight he has been since he experienced Matthew Hatton in Nov of 2011.

Boxing Scene’s Miguel Rivera is confirming that Canelo was under the highest possible permitted, 169, and considered in at 166.8. For viewpoint, this is approximately the same he was when he considered 166.5 for 30-day weigh-in for the Fish battle. If we do the mathematical (and I dislike mathematical, for the record) Canelo needs to fall another 14.8 bodyweight over the next 1 30 days. That’s about one lb for every two periods, on regular.

The Punching Field content also has an image of Canelo status on the range. He looks fairly slim already, to be sincere. But I have never seen him at a 30-day weigh-in before so I can’t opinion on how he looks in comparison to other periods in that respect. The image also gives us an excellent part perspective of Canelo’s trash huge out of his lingerie so there’s that too if you just can’t hold out until the actual weigh-in.

Will Canelo create the bodyweight comfortably? Will it have an impact on his performance? Have we already discussed this for periods on end on here? Are you prepared for the battle to just get over with?
