Logan Paul Earned Nearly $9,000 Per Punch Landed, While Floyd Mayweather Earned More Than $200K Per Punch
A study by Pickswise looked at some of the most lucrative fights in boxing and worked out how much cash was earned per punches landed. The study also looked at the exhibition match between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather.
It revealed Logan Paul earned a minimum of $8,929 per punch in his exhibition bout against Floyd Mayweather, while the undefeated legend earned a whopping $232,558 per punch landed. Paul managed to land 28 punches against one of the greatest boxers of all time. That means he got a guaranteed purse of $250,000 and that figure will likely be a lot higher once the PPV buys come in.
While the 44-year-old Mayweather made a ton this fight, it is nowhere near the most he has brought in. When Mayweather took on Conor McGregor in 2017, he earned over $1.6 million per punch landed while McGregor earned nearly $800,000.
Mayweather earned $10 million based on his punches landed and that could be increased to $50 million.
Mayweather threw 107 punches, and Paul doubled that with 217. As you know, no winner was declared as the Florida State boxing commission didn’t officially sanction the fight due to the large disparity in size and experience level.
“He’s better than I thought he was,” Mayweather said of Paul after the bout. “… I was surprised by him tonight. Good work. Good little guy.” Mayweather was asked if he would do another exhibition fight, and he said “probably not. He also was asked if he would come out of retirement, which led to him answering “absolutely not.”
Mayweather was named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2010s by the Boxing Writers Association of America.
