Mayweather taking home $32 million : The Business of MMA

Floyd Mayweather is set to earn a guaranteed $32 million according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission (via Dan Rafael tweet). This amount is a record eclipsing $30 million due to Mike Tyson in his 1997 fight with Evander Holyfield.

Miguel Cotto will earn $8 million and a portion of the PPV share. This will be the most Cotto will have made in his career.

In addition to his $32 million, Mayweather will receive an additional amount from PPV and other revenue generators from the night. You may recall he earned up to $40 million in his last fight against Victor Ortiz.

Dan Rafael also reports the salary figures of the undercard released by the NSAC:

-Saul “Canelo” Alvarez – $1.2 million
-Shane Mosley – $650,000
