Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul are two of the most well-known fighters in the world, and their respective purses for their exhibition fight proved it. While many were expecting Mayweather to take home more money than Paul, both fighters ended up taking home an impressive amount.
Mayweather, who is considered one of the greatest boxers of all time, secured a purse of $50 million for the fight. As for Paul, his exact amount was undisclosed, but reports stated that he raked in a whopping $20 million after taking on Mayweather.
While both fighters received large payouts from this match, the question remains as to which one made out more financially. Mayweather’s payout may have been higher up front, but Paul managed to walk away with nearly 40% of what Mayweather earned. And although he only has limited experience in boxing, Paul is likely to see some long-term success in the sport thanks to being paired with such a legendary fighter.
Of course, the real winner here is not either fighter, but rather the fans. While neither fighter was expected to win or put on an amazing show, they still managed to entertain viewers while providing them with an interesting exhibition match between two world-class fighters. Whether it was worth it financially or not; both fighters helped make history and are sure to have lasting impacts on the sport of boxing.
Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather
The long-awaited fight between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather finally took place on Sunday, June 6th. While the hype around the event was huge, the fight itself was a bit of a letdown. Many viewers were expecting a knockout from Mayweather, but Paul managed to last all 8 rounds.
So, who made more money from this event?
That would be Mayweather, who earned a guaranteed $30 million dollars. Paul, on the other hand, took home a reported $250,000 dollars. While that may seem like a lot of money, it’s nothing in comparison to what Mayweather made.
It’s also worth noting that Mayweather has been involved in much bigger pay-per-view events than this one. The Logan Paul fight drew in an estimated 1.6 million pay-per-view buys, while Mayweather’s 2015 fight against Manny Pacquiao drew in 4.6 million buys.
In the end, it seems clear that Mayweather was the big winner when it comes to earnings from this fight.
As the world watched history be made on Sunday night, one question still remains: who won?
Mayweather, who is now 50-0 with 27 KOs, emerged victorious in a hard-fought match against Paul, who put up a good fight but ultimately succumbed to the better boxer. But while Mayweather may have won the battle, it’s unclear if he won the war.
In terms of payouts, both fighters did quite well for themselves. Mayweather reportedly earned $100 million from the exhibition match, while Paul walked away with $30 million. So from a financial perspective, it would appear that Mayweather was the clear winner.
However, from a publicity standpoint, it’s arguable that Paul came out on top. The YouTube star generated a tremendous amount of buzz leading up to the fight and even managed to score a few punches against Mayweather. As a result of all the hype, Paul’s profile has only continued to rise, while Mayweather’s has remained largely unchanged.
So who really won?
Well, that depends on how you look at it. If you’re just looking at the bottom line, then Mayweather is the clear winner. But if you take into account all of the factors leading up to and resulting from the fight, then Paul may have come out ahead after all.
Differences in the type of earnings
There are a few key differences in the type of earnings between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul. For one, Mayweather is a professional boxer who has had many years of experience in the sport, while Paul is an amateur with far less experience. This means that Mayweather was able to command a higher purse for his fight against Paul. In addition, Mayweather also made significantly more money from pay-per-view sales than Paul did. This is likely because Mayweather is a far more well-known name than Paul, and people were willing to pay more to see him fight. Finally, Mayweather’s total earnings were also boosted by sponsorships and other sources of income, while Paul’s earnings were mostly just from his fight purse and pay-per-view sales.
Which was more worth it: Floyd Mayweather or Logan Paul
When Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul fought in an exhibition match, many people were wondering who would come out ahead in the end. The answer, it seems, is both men.
While Mayweather took home a bigger paycheck for the match – reported to be around $100 million – Paul made out pretty well too. His guaranteed purse was $10 million, but with pay-per-view buys and other earnings, he could end up making closer to $50 million.
So, who was more worth it in the end?
It’s hard to say. Both men made a lot of money for what was essentially a glorified sparring match. In the end, though, it seems that both men got what they wanted: a big payday and a chance to boost their careers.
