In a fight against Richard Commey, ‘Take Over’ reportedly received a guaranteed purse of $400,000 and 40% PPV shares. Lopez has earned six-figure digits four more times, in his fights against Mason Menard, Diego Magdaleno, Edis Tatli, and Masayoshi Nakatani respectively. As of now, Lopez’s entire boxing earnings account for $2.59 million. It also includes PPV shares and TV rights money.
