Wilder vs Ortiz. Official and unofficial purses of the fighters

About a day remains before the rematch of Deontay Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) and Luis Ortiz (31-1, 26 KOs), and on the eve of this event Nevada State Athletic Commission announced the official purses of the main participants in the upcoming boxing evening in Las Vegas. It should be noted that the official purses are not always, and certainly not in this case coincide with reality.

When Wilder and Ortiz met twenty months ago for the first time The Bronze Bomber has received 2.1 million dollars, and King Kong received 500 thousand dollars. This time the fight will be shown by PPV, so the fighters get much more.

According to official information, Ortiz will earn $1.5 million and Wilder twice as much - $3 million. However, we know that these numbers could increase significantly. Seven months ago, the Cuban rejected the offer worth about 7 million to meet Joshua, so now "as reward" for his loyalty he will receive at least $7 million. Wilder earnings will depend on the PPV sales, but it will definitely be an eight digit sum.

Below are the purses of the other participants from Las Vegas evening.

Leo Santa Cruz $750 thousand - Miguel Flores $100 thousand.

Brandon Figueroa $200 thousand - Julio Ceja $50 thousand.

Luis Neri $300 thousand - Emmanuel Rodriguez $75 thousand.
