Gervonta Davis Expected To Make Over $1 Million In Fight Vs. Hector Luis Garcia
Garcia is expected a huge step-up in pay.
Gervonta Davis and Hector Luis Garcia are just days away from their main event fight on Saturday, January 7.
And while Saturday will serve as a prelude to his anticipated grudge match against Ryan Garcia, Davis and Garcia are set to earn a pretty penny from their matchup, which takes place inside the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.
According to Sports Payouts, Davis is taking home a guaranteed salary of $1.5 million plus 60% of the pay-per-view revenue. Garcia, meanwhile, will earn $350,000 plus a 40% portion of the PPV income.
In Davis’ last fight in May against Rolando Romero, he had a guaranteed total of about $2 million, which turned out to be $5 million following pay-per-view sales. Romero got a guaranteed $500,000, which became $1.5 million after pay-per-view revenue.
Davis won that fight by sixth-round technical knockout.
For Garcia, he made $75,000 in his February bout against Chris Colbert, who took home $500,000. Garcia was an underdog in the fight, but managed to upset Colbert by unanimous decision.
Earlier this week, Davis said that he’s not looking past Garcia.
“I ain’t gonna lie. He looks a little hungry. A lot of people overlook him, but I ain’t trying to overlook him. He looks like he’s ready. And it could be a life changer for him. You know what I mean? He wants to take my spot. So I’m definitely not looking past him. I’m in a real fight. January 7 is going to be a crazy night,” Davis said on an episode of the Showtime series “All Access.”
The fight will be available in the U.S. and Canada on Showtime PPV while it will air on FIGHT SPORTS MAX in 50+ countries outside of the U.S.
