Jake Paul will finally go head-to-head with Tommy Fury on Sunday in what promises to be an epic main event.
With the mouthwatering fight taking place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, both men are expected to earn a big payday for the fight.
The American is no stranger to a big pay out- with Paul earning £1.5million in his last bout against UFC legend Anderson Silva. ‘The Problem Child’ would beat the Brazilian on points to maintain his unbeaten run inside the ring. In 2021 alone, he earned over £30million in his fights with Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
As for Fury, the 23-year-old is set to earn the biggest payday of his career so far. The Briton is coming off a points victory in his last professional outing against Daniel Bocianski back in April 2022.
In his fight with Anthony Taylor back in 2021, it was reported that the Englishman earned just £10,900 for winning the fight – the lowest of any fighter on the card.
