Canelo Alvarez He is one of the highest earning boxers today. His prestige lives on, despite his painful loss to Dmitry Bivol, which was his first loss since 2013.

The boxer from Guadalajara always wins a lot of money in each of his fights, even in his only two losses: against Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2013 and the aforementioned one against Bivol in 2022.

Precisely against bivol he took a good sum that could have been much higher: he was guaranteed to receive 15 million dollars. But he could have taken up to 40 million or 70% of the payment per event, but when he lost he did not reach that figure. Instead, against Mayweather his profit was 13 million dollars.

Now, we are going to review his main earnings in his entire career. The most lucrative was the rematch against Golovkin, from whom he snatched the WBA, OIB and WBC middleweight belts. This fight generated a total purse of around $90 millionof which Canelo became creditor to some USD 50 million, the most lucrative income of his career.

The second most lucrative was also against Golovkin, who ended in a draw in their first meeting. The Mexican took a bag of 40 million dollars. From behind, their victories against Callum Smith and Avni Yildirimwith an average of 33 million dollars in each of them.
