Vitali Klitschko's pay compared to UFC
------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok so I was reading an article which mentioned the pay of Klitschko for his title defense against Chisora. It mentions that Klitschko was expected to earn around 2.5 million euros while Chisora was expected to earn 250k. Both of which do not include endorsements. Vitali is the consensus number 2 Heavyweight in boxing after his brother.

A Heavyweight world champion of more than one organisation yet generally ranked number 2? Who does this remind you of, may I ask? Alistair Overeem of course. And here is a link in which it shows him being paid $2.27m before endorsements. People will point out the exchange rate with euro currency being stronger than the dollar but the point still stands. The article also shows Brock Lesnar being paid an average of $2.4m for each of his UFC fights. All of which before sponsors, character likeness etc.

I guess my point is that top level boxers get paid similarly to top level UFC fighters, unless your name is Pacquiao or Mayweather. And of course we all know that boxers get paid a pittance on the undercard at times. Just thought I'd share this.
got this from sherdog.

Well yeah Overeem is a paid ass kickboxer. Ha He doesn't represent the majority of mma fighters. Like in boxing promoters are trying to make you the most money and pay for your service. While in mma you have to be successful in the ufc for years until you prove your good enough to demand top dollar.

What about Klitschko vs. Haye purses and Klitschko vs. Admake purses?

DAVID HAYE will pocket a cool 15million from his world heavyweight unification showdown in Hamburg.
Britain's WBA king yesterday weighed in two stones lighter than giant IBF and WBO title-holder Wladimir Klitschko but purse-wise both fighters will be equals tonight.
The 30m pot - Europe's richest ever - will be split 50-50.
Pay-per-view figures are poised to break a million, which would make the fight second only to Hatton-Mayweather in UK box office history.
Terrestrial TV packages for Germany and the USA will rake in 6m and with 45,000 fans packed inside the Imtech Arena, paying between 50 and 1000 for tickets, Haye will coin it in, win or lose.
Last night he said: "This is the biggest fight in boxing, plain and simple.
"The only fight that could match it is Floyd Mayweather against Manny Pacquiao. For various reasons that has not happened, and won't happen this year, so this is the biggest fight to happen in boxing by far.
"I'm so proud to be involved in it and to be the guy that knocks the other unconscious is going to be a great feeling - to be the main man at the pinnacle of the heavyweight division.

Vitali fought a 15-3 relaitvely unknown fighter that there was really no hype for until the weigh in. Overeem fought UFC's cash cow. I doubt any UFC heavy weight actually makes more money than the K bros in the end. They are making mega bank in Europe just look at the German and Europe media hype for their fights and them filling up huge stadiums. Way more endorsement money than any UFC fighter, and to add to it...they are getting paid in Euros!

Even though MMA fighters deserve it, top boxers are making alot more on average.

Yup. All these guys are doing is picking just a few examples and comparing them to suit the argument.

Vitali made 3.2 mil dollars if that figure is correct.

Not bad for fighting a novice in chisora when it was not on a PPV.

well lets make something clear here.... UFC hasn't been around over 100 years like boxing has.

Also, what do the rest of the fighters on a Pacquiao and Mayweather fight get? Peanuts.

and the UFC doesn't have to match boxing pay ever to be fair. The point here is that ppl say UFC fighters are exploited when they are clearly not. Top level fighters are getting enormous paydays for what they do and thats all that matters. The rest of the money goes into growing the UFC machine which in turn grows and stabilizes the sport of mma. Unlike boxing which is being gutted by the boxers who take 99% of the money and don't put any back into the sport. Theres a reason the curve of both sports is heading in the opposite direction.

Boxing may be stagnant in America but over the last few years Boxing has grown tremendously globally. How you started the thread was pretty pathetic you state UFC/Boxing heavyweight pay is similar and take a small heavyweight Boxing match and compare it to the biggest ufc heavyweight fight of the year. Why not compare the 2 biggest Heavyweight Boxing matches to the ufc heavyweight fight. Klitschko vs. Haye and Klitschko vs. Adamek vs. Lesnar vs. Overeem. Saul Alvarez and Shane Mosley are going to be on Mayweather undercard and they are going to get far from peanuts. Your biased attitude towards mma is pretty clear in this thread.
