Pacquiao is one of the greatest ring star in boxing history. So, a massive amount of purses is normal. The 42-year-old legend is expected to earn a guaranteed $5 million, while the total payout could be approximately $25 million. 

However, the total purse depends on the PPV sales. So, this could be more or less $25 million. But this amount is not higher than what Pacquiao used to earn in his young and prime days. For your information, PacMan took home a $10 million guaranteed money in his last fight against Keith Thurman. So, earning $5 million guaranteed is not bad even in this world pandemic.

Further, it is assumed that Pacquiao will earn more than $25 million from the PPV shares as this fight could be his last fight. But this is not confirmed yet. If it is true, the fans will surely be looking forward to enjoying the last clash. Hence, the organizers can expect a surge in PPV sales. 

On the other hand, Yordenis Ugas’ payout is yet to be confirmed, hence it is not revealed yet. But, if we consider his previous fights’ purses and payouts, he will also take home a hefty amount of money.

But the 12 round bout between, Pacquiao vs Ugas, pay-per-view prices haven’t been changed despite the WBC and IBF champion’s absence, will remain the same at $74.99 which was set for the earlier stage for Pacquiao’s title bid against Spence.

You might think, why the fight ppv price is still high after the drama of removing Errol Spence Jr. Manny Pacquiao’s presence in the ring after a long time perhaps forced to be set at the high pay-per-view rates.

However, the former eight-division world champion’s appearance in the ring another time can be seen if he knocks out Ugas.
