According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is receiving $2,000,000 for this Saturday's defense against Josesito Lopez, who snags $212,500. The Showtime televised quadrupleheader will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez is listed as receiving $40,000 [almost positive that a much lower amount is being reported for tax purposes], while challenger Daniel Ponce De Leon grabs $100,000.

Marcos Maidana is receiving $250,000, with Jesus Soto Karass grabbing $80,000.

And IBF bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz is going to receive $85,000, while challenger Eric Morel will get $35,000.

Andres Gutierrez is getting paid $15,000, and Carlos Valcarcel will get $10,000.

Lopez is getting robbed....he should get $500k to $700 K at the very least. If he takes a L, his paydays are going to get lesser. $212k.....really...C'MAN!!!

That is what they are reporting as his purse. I am sure he is receiving $100,000 plus as training expenses. In boxing this practice is done to lessen the tax the boxer pays.

Canelo is getting $2 mil to fight a jr welterweight, wow, he must love Oscar.

2.25k kinda low to cash out on a career

Morales/Barrera 1, these guys were paid 500,000$ each. How does this make sense? This is 12 years later, the cost of living is up 12 years.
