CANELO ALVAREZ is about to earn a GUARANTEED £30million to battle Caleb Plant – earlier than any pay-per-view bonuses are added on.
And Plant is about to earn no less than £7.4m for his half within the first-ever, undisputed super-middleweight undisputed title decider.
The pre-fight purses have been revealed by Dan Rafael, and don’t encompass something earned after the PPV success.
For Canelo’s wins over Callum Smith, 31, in December 2020 and Avni Yildirim, 29, in February, Forbes reported he made £23.7m.
And for his final win, towards Billy Joe Saunders, 31, in Might, the Mexican was believed to have been paid near £25m.
Canelo took eight rounds to interrupt down Saunders, and go away the beforehand unbeaten Brit with FOUR face fractures.
That got here after some heated trash speaking however Alvarez warned Plant, 29, has lit a fireplace beneath him like no different.
And he promised to make the undefeated American pay – inside the 12 spherical distance.
Canelo, 31, predicted: “That’s why we’re right here and Saturday evening, we’re gonna make historical past.
“He’s a very good fighter with loads of abilities, however he’s nothing new for me. I’ve been in there with loads of good fighters, so it’s nothing completely different.
“I believe for my part, it’s going to be seven to 9 rounds.”
Canelo’s final three fights have all been as a free agent on DAZN promoted by Eddie Hearn.
However Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champion’s – who Plant is signed with – prized the four-division champion over to Showtime PPV for the unification bout.
