The eyes of the sporting world will be on Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium this Sunday as Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul face-off in a money-spinning exhibition bout.
Both fighters stand to earn a tidy sum from the fight, which will make a fortune from PPV box office.
Mayweather has previously claimed he’ll earn around $100million (£72million) from the bout.
“I can fight a fighter right now and I can guarantee myself $35million (£25m). I can eventually probably make $50million (£36m) for just a regular fight," Mayweather said.
“Or me and Logan Paul can go out, entertain, have fun and make nine figures $100million (£72m) or more.”
Paul, on the other hand, told TMZ that he’s likely to pocket somewhere in the region of $20million (£14million) for fight.
That’s a significant disparity in potential earnings, and those numbers are also played out in the net worth of the pair.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Mayweather has an estimated net worth of $450million (£318million).
The 44-year-old has earned much more than that over the course of his career, though, with fights against the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor bringing in $250million and $300million respectively.

He also owns a great deal of real estate, including an 11-bedroom custom-build mansion in Las Vegas and another colossal pad in Beverley Hills that was bought for $25.5million in 2017.
His mansion alone is worth more than Logan Paul’s entire net earnings, and Pretty Boy boasts plenty more than just property in his extensive portfolio.
He reportedly owns over $15million worth of luxury cars, a $60million private jet dubbed “Air Mayweather” and a jewellery collection that would make Tiffany and Co. blush.

Paul can only dream about that kind of wealth.
The YouTuber has an estimated net worth of $19million – $6million less than the price Mayweather paid for his Beverley Hills mansion.
Unlike his opponent, Paul doesn’t boast a portfolio of expensive jewellery, cars and mansions.
He still has his share of luxuries, though, including a 14-room property in the Los Angeles suburb of Enico purchased for $6.55million in 2017.
The 26-year-old social media star has over 23million YouTube subscribers and has clocked up over 6billion views from his videos.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Paul made $12.5 million in 2016, $12 million in 2017, $14.5 million in 2018 and $10million in 2019.
He stands to more than double his current net worth by simply getting in the ring with the 50-0 Mayweather on Saturday night.
