Since Serrano is playing for Jake Paul’s boxing company, Paul made sure to raise the fight purse to seven figures. However, the exact amount is not released yet, but you predict that the fighters will make around $1 million or more than that.

This will be Serrano’s first $1 million purse as she used to make six figures. For example, her salary for the last fight was $275,000 in December 2021 against Miriam Gutiérrez.

On the other hand, this is the fourth time Taylor will be making more than one million dollars.

However, these payouts don’t include any deduction for some classified items such as licenses, insurance, and taxes. Further, other incentive payments will be added later after the event is finished. Hence, the fighters will earn more which we will update upon the disclosure from the organizer.
