It's also a lot about the draw. Two heavy weight guys boxing or mma will generally pull a larger crowd than the female side and the money is from that and ppv. So even if they aren't paid equally there's still logic behind it. Her point still being valid because the higher she climbs the more people will watch awaiting further ascent or the fall.

Boxers make a lot more money than MMA fighters when it comes to the pros. Boxing just has a lot more old money invested into it. That's why when Dana White tried to get Mayweather to do an MMA fighter VS him match, Mayweather retorted that he makes a lot more money. He, however, wasn't so quick witted when White offered to pay him his boxers wage.

yeah, that's just dumb on mayweather's part. there is no shame in saying that as a boxer, he'd get his ass kicked by an MMA fighter trained in 5 different martial arts disciplines. because he would.
