Fury vs Taylor: Who won?
The YouTube star outpointed the former UFC champion, receiving the nod from the judges via split decision.
And now the list of payouts have been released by the Ohio commission, with both fighters earning career-high paydays.
The fighters may top up these purses with a cut from the final amount of pay-per-view buys, a percentage of ticket and merchandise sales, or additional bonuses paid by their promotors.
But Paul and Woodley each officially pocketed $2,000,000 (£1,454,000), tel que rapporté par MMA Junkie, with neither fighter having a win bonus inserted into their contract.
Amanda Serrano earned $75,000 (£54,500) for her win as chief support, besting Mexican Yamileth Mercado, who earned $45,000 (£33,000).
Daniel Dubois’ was the epitome of boxe’s saying that you do not get paid for overtime, with the British heavyweight banking $100,000 (£73,000) for his first-round demolition of Joe Cusumano, whose purse totally $111,000 (£81,000) – though Dubois likely added much more to his final figure through the figures totally on BT Sport Box Office, who carried the fight in the UK.
Montana Love earned $60,000 for his stunning win over Ivan Baranchyk, whose consolation for another brutal loss was $60,000 (£44,000). Tommy Furie, a potential future opponent for Jake Paul, earned $15,000 (£11,000), but his deal almost certainly inflates from the PPV buys in the UK, given his fame from Love Island, with Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor earning $40,000 (£29,000). And Charles Conwell earned $80,000 (£58,000) with his opponent Juan Carlos Rubio picking up $20,000 (£14,500).
Paul earned a guaranteed £500,000 ($690,000) for his last fight against Ben Askren. While Woodley’s manager Malki Kawa, Raconté MMAFighting that his client’s final figure will be heavily boosted by the success of the show’s buys: "Oui, he’s getting paid really well.
“It’s one of the best deals I’ve ever done. It’s a tremendous deal. He’s getting a large base number, he’s getting a cut of the pay-per-view globally.
“He should walk away with a multi-million dollar payday. “His base guarantee is in the millions already, but add on all the other extra stuff, it’s a really nice payday.”
