Tyson and Jones Jr. are being well compensated. According to Jed Goodman on Twitter, Tyson and Jones are both making $1 million just for showing up. However, they could make a lot more than what’s being reported although based on disclosed wages, Tyson just picked up a seven-figure payday.
Disclosed purses for #TysonJones (again this is only the disclosed purses):
Jones Jr: $1M
Badou Jack: $180K

Perhaps the most bizarre development here is that Jake Paul and Nate Robinson only made $600 for their fight. Some said this was simply a typo and that they made $600K although Goodman notes that Paul and Robinson are primarily being paid in PPV revenue, which means their earnings will ultimately be much higher.
Needless to say, this was successful even for all parties involved, even if Robinson only got $600 to get knocked out.
