Canelo Alvarez And Caleb Plant's 'Guaranteed Purses' Revealed, Both Men To Take Home Huge Payday

Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant will reportedly take home 'guaranteed' eight-figure paydays for their highly-anticipated main event in Las Vegas.

Both fighters went head-to-head at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in a bid to become boxing's first undisputed super-middleweight champion and Canelo came out on top, knocking out Plant in the 11th round to become undisputed king.

There is no doubting the Mexican fighter's stature in the sport right now and his 'guaranteed' purse for the bout highlights that.

Alvarez, who has held 15 different versions of a world title in his career to date, will secure $40 million for the main event fight, according to journalist Dan Rafael.

Plant, meanwhile, will pick up a very respectable $10 million in Vegas this weekend.

It must be noted that both fighters' pay cheque will not be final until the official pay-per-view sales of the fight drop.

Rafael took to Twitter on Sunday morning and questioned the entire UFC 268 card's combined purse compared to that of Canelo vs Plant.

"What's the entire #UFC268 card combined purse?" he wrote. "I'd imagine a tiny fraction of that."

It certainly got people talking on social media.
