Mayweather vs. Maidana: Mayweather set to make $32 million minimum, Maidana $1.5 million

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport

See what each man, with the exception of Adrien Broner for some reason, will be making Saturday night. (Now updated with Broner.)

His nickname is "Money" and after Saturday he will have a whole lot more of it. Today it's been reported by numerous boxing scribes on the scene in Las Vegas that Floyd Mayweather is guaranteed to take home at least $32 million from his pay-per-view fight with Marcos Maidana. That number will surely rise after the PPV money is added in.

Marcos Maidana, on the other hand, is getting a minimum guarantee of only $1.5 million according to what's been reported in Nevada. We've seen times, especially with boxers who come from outside the United States, when a fighter's real purse is not totally given. It appears likely that's what's happening here as $1.5 million would be an awfully small amount of money for such a big fight. Maidana could get that figure just by fighting a rematch with Adrien Broner. There's a better chance he's guaranteed around twice that amount.

The chief supporting bout between Amir Khan and Luis Collazo will be paying pretty well, especially for Khan. Khan will be taking home $1.5 million, a hefty sum for an undercard fighter who hasn't exactly scintillated lately. Collazo will receive $350,000.

The other two bouts feature the return of Adrien Broner against Carlos "No, not that one" Molina and Mayweather Promotions prospect J'Leon Love facing Marco Antonio Periban. For whatever reason, no purse has been announced for Broner, the only boxer on the PPV card not to have his purse released thus far. Molina will be taking home $150,000. Meanwhile, Love and Periban will receive $100,000 and $35,000, respectively.

UPDATE: Adrien Broner's purse is $1.25 million.
