In what's been promoted as a boxing fight for the ages, where two undefeated stars will challenge for legacy,Errol Spence Jr. (28-0) versus Terence Crawford (39-0) is what boxing fans have been anticipating all along. Spence Jr. and Crawford are boxers that are still in their prime and respectively are the No.1 and No. 2 in the welterweight division.
Spence Jr. and Crawford will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas where four belts will be at stake and someone will become the undisputed champion. Spence defeated Yordenis Ugas last year via TKO in the 10th round. Crawford delivered a similar outcome to his previous opponent, David Avanesyan when he finished via TKO in the sixth round.
How much are Errol Spence Jr. and Terrence Crawford making from their fight?
Now just how much is each fighter making in this super fight? The salaries for Spence and Crawford are unknown due to the Nevada State Athletic Commission's privacy rule. They no longer provide media with the figures, therefore anyone reporting "official" numbers are ... lying.
But we can estimate and what's been speculated in guaranteed money (not including the PPV incentives) is both fighters making over eight figures.
In an Instagram Live leading up to the fight, Crawford said that representatives from anonymous hedge funds were offering guaranteed purses of $25 million each. With that number, there is an expectation that Spence and Crawford will more than likely be making over that $25 million mark.
The mega-fight is set to deliver for the boxing fans and the fighters, and there is already hope that there will be a second fight between Spence and Crawford.
