For Fury, the highest purse offer in boxing history


While Saúl “Canelo” Alvarez from Guadalajara received a purse of 40 million dollars in his most recent fight against the American Caleb Plant, the WBC heavyweight world champion, the British Tyson Fury, is guaranteed a payment of 41 million dollars for expose before the mandatory challenger, Jamaican Dillian Whyte. European bag that serves as a thermometer to ratify the Jalisco world champion, Saúl “Canelo” Alvarez, as the boss of global . The man from Guadalajara must charge more in his next commitment.

Matchroom Boxing came to the WBC to compete with a purse of 32 million dollars. The president of the highest body, Mauricio Sulaimán, said that this is the highest purse offer in the history of boxing.

It seemed that the rising career of the Michoacan would continue. In 2019, he won two world championship fights, however, in October 2020, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, he met the American Gervonta Davis, who knocked him out with a shocking uppercut. The WBA Lightweight World Championship, held by Davis, was in dispute.

Demoralized, Santa Cruz was inactive for more than a year, and yesterday he reappeared against Keenan Carbajal, in a 10-round Super Featherweight in Las Vegas.

By the way, Abner Mares’ last fight was the second setback that Leo Santa Cruz applied to him, in June 2018 in Los Angeles.

And that’s where I’ll be peeking.
