How much are Devin Haney and Regis Prograis getting paid for Saturday’s super lightweight bout

Devin Haney and Regis Prograis face off on Saturday, December 9 in a super lightweight fight. We break down the purse for both fighters.

Canelo Alvarez v Jermell Charlo

An epic super lightweight fight is upon us as Devin Haney and Regis Prograis are scheduled for 12 rounds live from the Chase Center in San Francisco on Saturday, December 9th Coverage starts at 8 p.m. ET on DAZN.

It’s been a big year for Devin “The Dream” Haney, in May he earned a unanimous decision win over Vasiliy Lomachenko. Not only was it arguably the best victory of his career, he also retained the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO lightweight titles. The 25-year-old has quickly ascended into a star and with an unbeaten record of 30-0, he now makes the move to super lightweight (140 pounds).

Waiting for Haney is none other than Regis “Rougarou” Prograis, a slick southpaw out of Louisiana who is the reigning WBC super lightweight champion. With 29 wins and 1 loss, Prograis has won 24 by knockout. Last November his 11th-round KO of Jose Zepeda started his tenure as titleholder. The 34-year-old is coming off a split-decision victory over Daniel Zorrilla in June.

Ahead of their clash, let’s go over their potential payouts for the super lightweight title fight.

Haney-Prograis Purse

Haney, amid a Twitter exchange with UFC fighter Sean O’Malley, openly revealed a potential payout of $6 million for this bout, via TalkSport. Now this number is not official and the PPV split is unknown but it makes sense as he reportedly took home $4 million against Lomachenko.

As for Prograis, his purse number remains unknown for this fight. He made headlines in 2022 when the $1.2 million check he earned in his bout against Zepeda bounced due to insufficient funds. Of course Prograis was later rewarded the purse.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has come forward and claimed that demand of purse from both fighters left him no choice but to make it a PPV bout, according to BoxingScene.

Nonetheless, the stage is set for Haney as he aims to become a two-division titleholder. Prograis and his 82.7% knockout rate will be ready in what is sure to be yet another entertaining fight in 2023.
