Kessler-Stieglitz Pay Figures, Sauerland Deny Numbers
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Editor's Note: Shortly after BoxingScene.com ran the below story, we were contacted by Chris Meyer, General Manager for Sauerland Event, who fully denies the figures that were published by Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.

"These numbers are everything but true. I have no clue where the Ekstra Bladet paper got those numbers from. No one from Steinforth or us had confirmed those amounts. The fact is, the negotiations were tough and both fighters will receive a good purse. The purses were negotiated based upon the fact that the bout will be held in a soccer stadium and we hope to have a good crowd of perhaps 15 to 25,000 people and the live feed will taken by networks in Germany and Denmark. But in no way did the purses reach the level that was quoted in the Danish Paper."

According to a report by Ekstra Bladet, Mikkel Kessler (44-2, 33 KOs), through his promoter, had to agree to pay WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (40-2, 23 KOs) nearly double the money to finalize a deal for the fight to take place in Coppenhagen, Denmark on November 5th. Kessler will receive an amount in the area of seven million kroner [max of 1.34 million dollars] and Stieglitz is set to receive around thirteen to fourteen million kroner [max of 2.69 million dollars].

Kessler's promotor Kalle Sauerland admits the fight was very costly to make. Kessler will also make additional revenue from other sources, like the millions that are generated from what is expected to be a sold out venue. An additional five million kroner [961,000 dollars] is going to be paid by the Danish public service channel TV2. The rest of the TV money will be generated from Sauerland's deal with ARD, and Showtime has agreed to televise the fight as well.

"These were very difficult and delicate negotiations. Some of the most troubling that I have ever been involved in. We actually negotiated for more than two months," Sauerland said.

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson]You get taxed where you live. Not where you work. So he'd be taxed the same regardless.[/QUOTE] So if Kessler fight in canada and earns $3.5M he would still get tax by the danish tax man?
