Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. George Kambosos Purses and payouts: Estimated earnings for both boxers this weekend

Former lightweight boxing champion Vasiliy Lomachenko has set his sights on the IBF world title. There are only a few hours left before he takes on current IBO Lightweight Champion, George Kambosos Jr.. This high-octane clash is said to have a lot to offer, and as such, fans want to know how much the boxers have in their pocket. after the match.

Several fans were shocked at the huge pay difference between Alvarez and Munguia after their fight. Reports said that unified super middleweight champion, ‘Canelo’ Alvarez took home $35 million from the encounter, while his rival Jaime Munguia pocketed a sum of just over $2 million.

But a report from ‘as.com’ shows that the payouts for the fight between Vasiliy Lomachenko and George Kambosos will not have such a big difference. While Kambosos may have the upper hand in terms of fighting, his Ukrainian rival won’t be far behind either.

The report revealed that ‘Ferocious’ Kambosos will pocket around $5 million, while his rival Lomachenko is expected to make $3.5 million from the fight. As both fighters grow in stature, so will the zeros at the end of those numbers. But that said, an $8.5 million purse, split almost evenly, isn’t that bad either.

Now the clash between these two is far from the only fight of the night. There are several other encounters that could get fans on their feet even before the start of the coveted clash between Lomachenko and Kambosos.
