Ksi vs Faze Temperrr Purse, Payouts, Salaries: How Much Do the Fighters Make For Their MF Cruiserweight Title?

Yesterday, KSI, a.k.a. JJ Olatunji, squared off against fellow YouTuber FaZe Temperrr and secured a dominating first-round KO victory at the Wembley Arena in London.

KSI was supposed to face UFC fighter Dillon Danis, but the American backed out of the fight just before the 10-day mark, citing a lack of preparation.

The aspiring British rapper debuted boxing against British YouTuber Joe Weller but drew huge media attention when he defeated YouTuber turned pro wrestler Logan Paul in their second face-off, the only professional bout in which KSI participated.

After the trailblazing clash against Elder Paul, KSI fought and won against celebrities like Swarmz and Luis Alcaraz Pineda.

On the other hand, 1.7 million Instagram follower celebrity FaZe Temperrr has a professional boxing record of 1-1 and an amateur record of 1-1, and his fight against the Nightmare was his first major appearance in combat sports.

After analyzing previous payment records and data from insiders, we came to the conclusion that this is how much these two had made from the clash. Let us break down the fight purses, payouts, and salaries of these celebrity boxers for yesterday’s MF cruiserweight title bout.

KSI has been participating in boxing events since 2018 and has 16 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, so except for Logan Paul, this 29-year-old has always bagged a bigger purse than his opponents.

In his first clash against Logan Paul, KSI bagged a whopping $1.8M as the fight resulted in a draw, where he was accountable for 50% of the PPV bonus. In the rematch bout against the American fighter, KSI was blessed with a lofty total of $2.2M and a 50% PPV share.

KSI was always awarded a seven-digit guaranteed purse, and in his last fight against FaZe Temperrr, KSI bagged a guaranteed purse of $1.3M, but with a 75% PPV share, his total purse will be a whopping $3.8M.

The opponent, FaZe Temperrr, is set to grab a $500k guaranteed purse, and with his 25% PPV share, Temperrr will receive a lofty total of $1.1M which will be the biggest payday for the Brazilian YouTuber.
