The official payouts for Errol Spence Jr vs. Shawn Porter have been revealed, and every fighter in the main and co-main event is getting a seven-figure guarantee.
IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr and WBC welterweight champ Shawn Porter each will get at least $2 million, per the California State Athletic Commission paysheet. They stand to make much more through pay-per-view revenue (and possibly other revenue sources too). Spence had a $3 million guarantee for his win over Mikey Garcia in March, while Porter’s purse is a career-high for what is his PPV debut.
As for the co-main event, WBC super-middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell has a $1 million purse, as does challenger David Benavidez. I’m almost certain that’s the biggest official purse for either man, with Benavidez in particular already rising up the pay ranks at just 22 years old.
Rounding out the main card are super-lightweight prospects Mario Barrios ($125,000) and Batyr Akhmedov ($75,000), while veterans Josesito Lopez and John Molina will get $125,000 for their 10-round PPV opener.
The PPV main card purses are as follows:
Errol Spence Jr – $2 million
Shawn Porter – $2 million
Anthony Dirrell – $1 million
David Benavidez – $1 million
Mario Barrios – $125,000
Batyr Akhmedov – $50,000
John Molina – $125,000
Josesito Lopez – $125,000
