A lot here is fighter pay.
Forget the big dogs in both mma and boxing. Gsp etc makes plenty of money.
Im talking undercard.
People always complain about the undercard fighter pay. Or basically anyone not in a co or main.
Just curious if anyone has the numbers thst undercard boxers make, or know where to find them?. Just curious to compare. Phone Post

Undercard guys make a suitable amount given their skills.  It's the decent fighters that are underpaid. Guys like Bader, Alves, Boetsch etc. The elite fighters are very well compensated.

To answer your question - I don't know what undercard boxers are paid. Probably a comparable amount, maybe even less.

It seems like in boxing you're either making under 10k, 75-100k, and if you're really good you get bumped up to a million+ haha and not much in between.
