Spence Makes Less Against Porter Than Garcia Fight
While Errol Spence Jr and Shawn Porter will add more zeroes to their bank account on Saturday night, Spence will be earning less to unify his title than he did to just defend it.
Per a report from Boxing Scene, both Spence and Porter, who will defend the IBF and WBC welterweight titles respectively, will earn $2 million each for their Fox Sports Pay-Per-View main event inside Staples Center on September 28th.
While a source who reviewed the contracts confirmed both fighters have additional guarantees and potential backend bonuses depending on the event’s success, Spence will make less than the $3 million he and Mikey Garcia individually earned for their March fight inside AT&T Stadium in front of 47,000 fans and 360,000 households on Pay-Per-View.
Co-main eventers David Benavidez and Anthony Dirrell will make $1 million each to face off in a super middleweight clash.
