The best offshore sportsbooks have priced ‘The Problem Child’ as the overriding betting favorite, with August seen as a huge underdog. For Jake Paul and Andre August, both men are expected to make huge sums of money for this fight, given the calibre of their resumés.

Jake Paul has earned somewhere in the region of $40 million for his last five fights. He earned a whopping $30m for the fight with Tommy Fury in February 2023, which was the biggest purse of his career by quite some distance.

For this fight against Andre August, Paul’s exact purse hasn’t been released. However, in a recent interview with The Sun, the Ohio man stated that he will almost certainly be making a loss on the bout:

“I’m foregoing a lot of money. This is probably a break-even fight for me. I probably won’t even make money on it. It’s not about the money it’s really about staying sharp and the experience of challenging myself in the ring with these guys – he’s a beast.”

In the opposite corner, Andre August will certainly receive the biggest of his career by quite some distance. The 35-year-old will make a minimum six-figures, and could perhaps even make $1 million if he wins.

How Much Will The Paul vs August Winner Make?

Well, the answer to that question entirely depends on who wins the fight. Both men are expected to receive an individual fight purse, so depending on which man has their hand raised will determine how much the winner receives.

The winner of the bout will likely receive an additional purse on top of what they are already expected to take home. Do not be surprised if in the aftermath of the fight it is reported that the winner has earned far more than their original base purse states.

Should Andre August win, he will likely be rewarded with a rematch with Paul, which would generate millions for him. Similarly, if Jake Paul gets his hand raised, he will likely receive an additional purse on top of his base salary ad cut of the gate/PPV sales.

In Friday’s main event, Jake Paul is the -650 favorite to win the fight with the best boxing betting apps. This come as no surprise given that he has beaten fighters such as Nate Diaz, Anderson Silva and Tyron Woodley of late. As well as knocking down a legitimate pro in Tommy Fury.

A lot of boxing bettors will of course fancy the more seasoned fighter, Andre August, as the betting underdog in this fight. He is currently priced around +425 with the best US sportsbooks to pull off the shock upset and all but end Jake Paul’s boxing career.
