While the exact figures for McBroom aren’t public, he did share some information about how much he’ll make in this fight. He confirmed Hall’s $5 million salary for this fight in an interview with The Hollywood Fix. In that interview, he shared that he’s willing to make less than Hall in order to make this fight happen.“I told the team, I said look, I’ll agree, for Bryce Hall to fight me, I’ll agree to make less money than him,” McBroom said.He also said the $1 million bonus for Hall (if he gets a knockout) will come out of his own pocket.While McBroom says he’s set to “make less” than Hall, the way he was talking made it seem like he wasn’t going to be making much less.

YouTube vs. TikTok fight payouts
The fight payout for the rest of the fighters in this event have not been revealed yet, but a few of the fighters involved have talked about money. AnEsonGib, who reportedly made over $1 million from his fight vs. Jake Paul, earning him the nickname Seven-Figure Gibber, said in an interveiw with FanSided that money has been the driving influence for a lot of these internet boxing matches.“And now other influencers, I fought when there was no money,” AnEsonGib said. “I had two fights, then fight for a check. Other influencers now, they see, they understand, they think it’s a cool experience. Don’t understand the trenches and the hard work. A lot of people said they were fighting for money. Cool, I got a nickname Seven-Figure-Gibber, but I’ve got a true passion for this.”Also speaking to FanSided, Deji mentioned money as well.“I would say it’s because there’s money to be made, because each, they have a following,” Deji said. “So obviously, Jake Paul having like, such a social following, and then turn habits into like a fight-following, and then just combining those two it’s just money to be made. That’s why. So ultimately, it’s just more eyes on the sport of boxing.”Deji’s opponent Vinnie Hacker also had a humorous moment during a press conference for his fight where he said he’s only doing this fight because of money.
