On Saturday in a PPV affair in Las Vegas, former WBC/WBA Light Middleweight Champion Canelo Alvarez returns to face hard-punching Alfredo Angulo. The undercard will feature:

Leo Santa Cruz vs. Cristian Mijares
12 rounds, for Santa Cruz's WBC junior featherweight title

Carlos Molina vs. Jermall Charlo
12 rounds, for Molina's IBF junior middleweight title

Jorge Linares vs. Nihito Arakawa
10 rounds, lightweights

Ricardo Alvarez (Canelo's brother) vs. Sergio Thompson
10 rounds, lightweights

So how large will their purses be?

The answer is not fully known but the Nevada State Commission has released the official purse sums per each fighter’s commission agreement.

Canelo vs Angulo Purses

Payouts according to the Nevada Athletic Commission

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez: $1.25 Million (901,681 EU, 747,562 GBP) *
Alfredo Angulo: $750,000

Leo Santa Cruz: $500,000
Cristian Mijares: $92,000.

Carlos Molina: $275,000
Jermall Charlo: $100,000.

Jorge Linares: $50,000
Nihito Arakawa: $ 50,000 

* Although we cannot verify this, it's likely the aforementioned numbers represent each fighter’s full purse for the exception of Canelo Alvarez.

The former WBC/WBA Jr Middleweight Champion, who earned $12 million for fighting Floyd Mayweather last fall, is more than likely guaranteed a certain percentage of pay-per-view income so his reported purse of $1.25 million is just a fraction of what he'll collect.

In the end, look for Canelo to pocket between $6-12 million (Or 4,326,822 EU/ 3,588,300 GBP to 8,653,644 EU/ 7,176,600 GBP), and possibly more.

A star fighter's overall purse can be a complex undertaking and often depends on several factors, most notably his guaranteed purse and the percentage of PPV income and sponsorship revenue a fighter agrees to accept if additional streams of income factor into the contractual equation.
