There probably was but maybe not as much? WBC probably sees this is a big PPV fight and tried to cash in like 7th said. But shouldn't there be a standardized fee for these belts? Why is it based on possible revenue of the fight?
According to one of the sources, the WBC declined to negotiate a lower sanctioning fee -- something it has often done in megafights involving superstars such as Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and Oscar De La Hoya.

Assuming Canelo accepts and pays the $300K sanction fees.
WBC has stated that Canelo/Golden Boy side has complied on every request by WBC so I assume that mean paying all fees as well.
After several weeks of communications, countless attempts and good faith time extensions trying to preserve the fight as a WBC world championship, Miguel Cotto and his promotion [Roc Nation Sports] did not agree to comply with the WBC rules and regulations, while Saul Alvarez has agreed to do so. Accordingly, the WBC must rule on the matter prior to the fight.
