Does anyone know how much the average pro boxer make than compared to pro MMA fighter? Who do you think makes more?
Totally depends on the fighter or boxer. Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are making significantly more than say Canelo Alvarez and Donald Cerrone. While they’re all pulling in bank, it totally depends on the fight and the fighters themselves. How many viewers a fight is going to draw in, Fight of the Night stats, etc. On average, UFC fighters are pulling in a median average of $28,000 whereas pro boxers are pulling in about $54,000 (that info is based off of a quick web search, but again, the numbers are drastically different from fighter to fighter and boxer to boxer and also fight cards)
