Fisher vs Babic Purse: Who’s Getting a Big Payday Punch?

Heavyweight prospect Johnny Fisher throws down with “The Savage” Alen Babic on July 6th. This clash between the undefeated Fisher and the hard-hitting Babic promises fireworks at London's Copper Box Arena. Let’s have a look at the Fisher vs Babic purse before the punches start to fly in this high-octane clash. 

Fisher vs Babic Purse: King-Sized Payouts in London?

In terms of intensity, Johnny Fisher vs Alan Babic could very well eclipse the bout between William Zepeda and Giovanni Cabrera. However, the financial stakes might not be as high.

We expect the Fisher vs Babic purse to be relatively modest, given none of the fighters were previously involved in very lucrative fights. 

Babic previously fought for the vacant WC Bridgerweight title. He received 50% of the $425,000 purse for challenging Lukasz Rozanski at the G2A Arena in Rzeszow, Poland. Since 10% of the purse was allocated as the winners bonus, Babic made $191,250 from the fight. Had he won the fight, he could have walked away with $233,750. 

There is no title at stake, so the Fisher vs Babic prize money will not be in that ballpark. Babic should command the larger split of the Fisher vs Babic payouts as he brings more experience to the table. 

The Fisher vs Babic purse should be around $350,000. We predict a 60% split for Babic, so the Croatian would make $210,000 from the fight. The boxing fighter pay for Fisher, therefore, will be $140,000. 

Boxing Fighter Payouts – Fisher vs Babic 

At just 25 years old and boasting an undefeated record of 11-0 (10 KOs), Johnny Fisher, aka “The Romford Bull,” has amassed a passionate fan base since turning pro in February 2021. With his impressive knockout power, Fisher is generating buzz as a potential future heavyweight champion. However, there are still questions about his ability against elite competition.

The 33-year-old Croatian bruiser, “Savage” Babic (12-1, 11 KOs), has become a cult hero among fans for his wild, entertaining brawling style.  He carved a path of destruction early in his career, racking up eleven knockouts in his first twelve fights.

However, his dream of championship gold was shattered in April of last year when he was knocked out in the first round by Lukasz Rozanski in a challenge for the vacant WBC bridgerweight title.  Showing resilience, Babic bounced back with a stoppage win over Steve Robinson in March.

Coming off a dominant January win against Dmytro Bezus, the undefeated Fisher (11-0, 10 KOs) is a heavy favorite.  However, Babic (12-1, 11 KOs) is known for his chin and brawling style.  

While he struggles later in fights, Babic can be dangerous early.  Can Fisher impose his size advantage and score a quick knockout? Or will Babic weather the storm and drag the fight into a grueling war?

This promises to be an exciting clash of styles, regardless of the winner. Both Fisher and Babic are expected to see a significant payday, a far cry from their earlier fights.
