There are a variety of super interesting fights set up this weekend. As the fighters step up and step into the ring on fight night, here’s a brief overview of the fights that you should definitely not miss out on.

This will also give you a rough idea of what these boxers could earn by the end of the night. While there is not sufficient insight available on the exact purses, a brief picture of their career earnings could give you a fair idea of what they could possibly pocket.

David Benavidez vs. Kyrone Davis Purse information

Many believe that David Benavidez is just one fight away from booking a mega-fight with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. With a win over Kyrone Davis, Benavidez could have a shot at the 168 lbs throne.

It is unclear how much both fighters could earn through this Showtime PPV main event. However, considering that Benavidez is one of the biggest under-30 boxing stars, Kyrone Davis could be in for his biggest payday yet.

It is well known that David Benavidez has had two big paydays against Ronald Gavril and Anthony Dirrell. In 2017, the American fighter took home $400,000 for this fight against Ronald Gavril.

David Benavidez then bagged $1 Million against Anthony Dirrell in 2019. His opponent also earned the same figure. ‘El Bandera Roja’ must have pocketed some extra money as his bonus amount for ending the fight with a mean knockout.

Jaime Munguia vs. Gabriel Rosado Purse information

Much like David Benavidez, even Jaime Munguia has managed to achieve a lot within a short time span. At 25, he has already managed to rack up 37 wins and remains undefeated.

On the other hand, Gabriel Rosado is struggling with his boxing stint. On Saturday night, he will look to pull off an upset and dethrone the Mexican champ.

Jaime Munguia is currently on track to be the next Canelo Alvarez and that his net worth stands at $1.5 million. This fight against Rosado has already gained immense traction and Rosado could even walk away with one of his biggest payouts to date.

Kiko Martinez vs Kid Galahad Purse information

Kid Galahad stepped on the weighing scale and missed the mark the first time and made 126.1 lbs against Kiko Martinez. The IBF featherweight champion could have even lost his title if he had failed to make weight the second time.

However, it is unclear if this will have any effect on his guaranteed purse.


Considering that Galahad is worth $1.5 million and that he reportedly even earned half a million dollars against Josh Warrington in 2019, Kiko Martinez could walk away with a lucrative payout, regardless of the outcome.

The exact payout figure for this title fight remains unknown; however, what we do know is that Eddie Hearn is setting the change in motion by handing out knockout bonuses on at least one undercard fight.

Alycia Baumgardner vs Terri Harper Purse information

WBC and IBO Super-featherweight champion Terri Harper is currently undefeated and has 11 wins on her record. On the other hand, the challenger Alycia Baumgardner has 10 wins under her belt and also has suffered one loss against Christina Linardatou.

Being the champion, Terri Harper would definitely have an upper hand in the net payout. She is reportedly worth $200,000 and even earned 150,000 GBP against Natasha Jones, who earned a relatively lower amount of 75,000 GBP.

Considering that many are rooting for Baumgardner to cause an upset, this fight could attract even more attention. As a result, both fighters could possibly earn more than the guaranteed purses for Harper vs Jones.
