David Haye takes on Tony Bellew in what will be a highly anticipated PPV fight in the United Kingdom set to take place on Saturday, 04 March 2017 at the 02 Arena in London. The build-up to the fight has been explosive and SkySports are hoping to generate record PPV numbers in what is hyped as a grudge fight between two big cruiser weights. Eddie Hearns has expressed delight over early PPV numbers and both Haye and Bellew will get a decent purse from this fight.
David Haye vs Tony Bellew Purse: Tony Bellew is all set for his career best purse where he is guaranteed to walk away with atleast £2.5 million. His earnings from the fight night might reach upto £3 million in total depending on the outcome of PPV numbers & sponsorship deals. David Haye on the other hand is also guaranteed £2.5 million but set to clear more with his one-off tier based PPV deal with SkySports and number of sponsorship deals.
Tony Bellew’s previous best purse was against Nathan Cleverly rematch where he made just under a million pound. His most recent fights against Ilunga Makabu and BJ Flores were pretty underwhelming and he hardly made £1 million combined from those two fights in 2016.
David Haye on the other hand had major paydays in the past, most notably that Wladimir Klitschko fight where he made over £10 million. While other notable fights against the likes of Dereck Chisora (£3 million), Audley Harrison (£5 million). His most recent outing was against a Arnold Gjergjaj where he pocketed surprising £1 million purse while his comeback fight against De Mor earned him respectable £500,000. Haye is a PPV star and another solid win against Bellew will put him back in the contention for some super fights against the likes of Joshua, Wilder or even rematch against Klitschko.
