It depends on who is fighting and what deal they make. The big promoters negotiate terms with the fighter based on what they think they will be pulling in. Paciquao or a Mayweather get a huge guarantee, based on all the revenue sources. A ballpark figure would be an 80-20% split of all revenue, which includes merchandising, TV, ticket sales and site fees. In the states the promoters are obligated by law to give the fighters these figures. I dont know about the UK and Europe. Some small promoters usually take as much as they can. Pac and his former promoter Murad Muhammad are a good example. Murad was given a budget of 750,000 for Pac to fight Barrera, Murad then offered Pac 300,000, Pac not knowing any better accepted. Murad got 450,000 for basically delivering Pac, cos Goldenboy did the show, and took care of Barrera's purse. Murad just sat back and collected his from HBO. When the heat from this hit the fan, Murad coughed up another 50,000 as a bonus to Pac, nice guy huh!
