How much money are Nate Diaz and Jake Paul making from their boxing event?

The highly anticipated boxing match between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz is set to take place this weekend, and the potential earnings for both combatants have been disclosed.

Jake Paul is coming off a loss to Tommy Fury in February, and is eager to redeem himself in this upcoming bout against former UFC star Nate Diaz.

Following his submission victory over Tony Ferguson at UFC 279 last September, Nate Diaz parted ways with the UFC to pursue a career in boxing.

In his boxing career, Jake Paul has already faced formidable opponents from the UFC. These include Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, and Anderson Silva.

After his close decision loss to Tommy Fury in Saudi Arabia, Jake Paul is determined to get back on the winning track in this crucial matchup against Diaz.

As the Paul vs. Diaz match approaches, their respective purses have been revealed. According to SportsLens, the 26-year-old boxing sensation is set to earn an impressive seven-figure purse.

He is guaranteed to pocket $2 million, but this amount could escalate to a staggering $5 million if he manages to defeat Diaz. On the other hand, Diaz is lined up to receive a base purse of $500,000. But it will double if he secures a victory against Paul.

Therefore, the purse for Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz is:

  • Paul guaranteed to make $2 million (which would increase to $5 million if he wins).
  • Diaz guaranteed to make $500,000 (which would increase to $1 million if he wins).

Previously Paul claimed he made 30M for Tommy Fury bout.

While Sportlens is not really a credible source, Diaz is copromoting this bout with Jake Paul’s MVP promotion meaning that the two of them are likely to split the PPV as well.

Diaz is a PPV star, meaning that the clash stands to make both of them millions.

The upcoming match not only promises to be a substantial payday for Jake Paul but also has significant implications for his boxing career.

Nakisa Bidarian is the co-founder of Paul’s boxing promotion. He recently suggested that this might be a make-or-break match for him. If Paul were to lose to Nate Diaz, Bidarian speculates that he might consider retiring from boxing altogether.

Nakisa Bidarian stated: “He may retire if he loses to Nate Diaz. His boxing career is on the line, in terms of being one of the top three or four guys in the entire sport globally. I think if he was to lose, he’d just go to being another prospect that’s coming up in the ring.”
