The match ended without a winner, but the fighters pulled in a lot of money from the event. Showtime signed the boxers for a fixed amount and a percent cut from the pay-per-view earnings.

‘The Predator’ is an impressive fighter today, but he had to face several poverty issues back in the day. Ngannou who is #1 in the UFC heavyweight division, his last match against Stipe Miocic earned him about $5,30,000. Logan Paul, who recently entered the boxing game, took home $20M from his fight.

Ngannou has been an elite striker in the UFC so a possible to the boxing ring can bring him some fresh challenges. It wouldn’t guarantee his chances of winning but Ngannou can still pull off a heavyweight blockbuster.
