Wilder vs Stiverne Purses/Payout: Behind the logic

On Saturday, 6'7" 29 year old Deontay Wilder will face WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KOs) of Canada in one of the most publicized heavyweight fights in years.

Wilder vs Stiverne will take place in Las Vegas and be broadcast on Showtime.

Deontay will look to become the first American heavyweight belt-holder in seven years (Shannon Briggs, 2007). And while lineal heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko will remain the real and legitimate ruler of the division regardless the outcome, Wilder is officially a 'person of
interest' among the American mainstream.

So how much are Wilder and Stiverne making for this bout?

 

  • Wilder purse: $1 Million
  • Stiverne purse: $910,000

By far the largest payouts of their respective careers, the split is fair.

Although Stiverne is the WBC champion and more battle-tested, Wilder, with his charisma and outstanding record of 32 wins 0 losses and 32 knockouts, has generated more interest.

In his most recent bout against Chris Arreola, Stiverne received a purported $225,000. We don't have payout data for Wilder's most recent bout, a 4th Round knockout of Jason Gavern in August.

As of earlier this week, Wilder was a slight favorite across the board at (-150). This means his backers must wager $150 to win $100. Stiverne remained a rough (+160) underdog, meaning one can win $160 by wagering $100 on the WBC Champion.
