Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders fight purses revealed: How much will Mexican and Brit earn in Texas super-fight?

CANELO ALVAREZ is set for another mega payday for his unification fight with Billy Joe Saunders.

The Mexican superstar puts his WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine belts on the line against WBO champion Saunders on Saturday.

According to Sportekz, Canelo will earn a guaranteed £10.7million ($15m) but the sum could rise following the streaming success on DAZN.

Saunders meanwhile, will take home at least £1.7m ($2.5m) for his trip to Texas.

The pair can expect to really see the money flow once bonuses are totted up, with Canelo set to make as much as £25m with BJS £3.5m.

Alvarez is boxing's top attraction and the highest-paid fighter in the world.

Before moving to sports streaming service DAZN, the four-division king was a pay-per-view headliner.

His nine box office fights, including against Floyd Mayweather, Amir Khan and Gennady Golovkin, saw him pocket around £80m.

Then, in 2018 he signed an 11-fight deal with DAZN, worth a record-breaking £277m.

He had three fights while under contract, beating Rocky Fielding, Daniel Jacobs and Sergey Kovalev.

That was before he decided to terminate the deal, but continued to fight on DAZN as a free agent, where he beat Callum Smith and Avni Yildirim.

Further reports say it banked him £25m taking his total to £85m earned while with DAZN.
