The huge purses Jake Paul and Nate Diaz will earn from their blockbuster boxing bout this weekend have been revealed.
The Stockton slugger left Dana White's MMA promotion following his submission victory over Tony Ferguson at UFC 279 last September.
As for Paul, he once again takes on a former UFC fighter, having fought the likes of Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva.
He'll be hoping to return to the win column after losing a close decision to Fury in Saudi Arabia.
With Paul vs. Diaz just days away, their purses have been revealed, with the 26-year-old set to pocket a cool seven-figure purse, according to SportsLens.
He's guaranteed to earn $2 million but could receive up to $5 million if he beats Diaz, who is in line to pick up $500,000. But his purse will double if he defeats Paul.
Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz fight purse:
- Paul guaranteed to earn $2 million (raising to $5 million if he wins).
- Diaz guaranteed to earn $500,000 (raising to $1 million if he wins).
It's another big payday for 'The Problem Child' and according to the co-founder of his boxing promotion, it could be his last fight depending on how he fares against Diaz.
Nakisa Bidarian claims Paul could retire if he loses, with his boxing career on the line.
"He may retire if he loses to Nate Diaz," he said.
"His boxing career is on the line, in terms of being one of the top three or four guys in the entire sport globally. I think if he was to lose, he’d just go to being another prospect that’s coming up in the ring."
Paul or Diaz - who takes it? Let us know.
