Canelo Alvarez fights Daniel Jacobs this weekend, and the two boxers will be making a lot of money in Las Vegas.

Canelo, who signed a historic $365 million deal with DAZN, will be getting $35 million for this fight. According to the official purses from Nevada, his opponent Jacobs will get a disclosed $2.5 million, but his guaranteed money from DAZN is expected to bump that up to over $10 million.

As for the co-main event, Vergil Ortiz Jr and Mauricio Herrera will both make $75,000.

Rounding out the main card is Lamont Roach Jr ($75,000) vs Jonathan Oquendo ($50,000) and Joseph Diaz Jr ($100,000) vs Freddy Fonseca ($10,000).

Apart from Fonesca, the entire fight card, including the rest of these preliminary bouts will still get a pretty decent payday.

Sadam Ali will get $150,000 to face Anthony Young, who is at $45,000, while John Ryder will make $100,000 to Bilal Akkawy’s $30,000.
