Mayweather vs Guerrero purses: Floyd to make $32 million, Guerrero $3 million

New, comments

Floyd Mayweather will make over ten times what Robert Guerrero does tomorrow, pulling in a $32 million purse for the Showtime pay-per-view main event.

Floyd Mayweather's purse for tomorrow night's fight will be $32 million, as he finalized the paper work today with the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Opponent Robert Guerrero will make a career-high $3 million, a great payday in boxing that seems minuscule compared to what "Money" is raking in.

Showtime has just $168 million left to pay Mayweather for his next five fights.

On the undercard, Daniel Ponce De Leon and Abner Mares will each make $375,000 for their WBC featherweight title fight. Leo Santa Cruz's purse is $165,000, while opponent Alexander Munoz will be paid $25,000. The opening bout of the PPV broadcast will see J'Leon Love battle Gabriel Rosado, with Love's purse $100,000, and Rosado's $60,000. Love may have to fork over some of that after missing weight today.

It's pretty much all done and dusted, except for the actual fights. Precious little hype remains, and now everyone has to perform, and we'll be here through the night and all day tomorrow with full coverage of the entire event.
