Do you know how much will Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley earn for their June 9, 2012 fight?
Read on to find out each fighter’s guaranteed salary and purse amount.
According to the Nevada Athletic Commission, Pacquiao is guaranteed US $26 million, his highest so far. In his last fight against Juan Manuel Marquez, he made US $22 million while $20 million against Shane Mosley, also in 2011.
Last month, his rival Floyd Mayweather, Jr. set the record for a purse guarantee with $32 million.
Pacquiao’s purse does yet not include sponsor money or the amount from the pay-per-view profits.
Bradley’s take-home pay is easier to ascertain because he will get a flat $5 million lump sum fee regardless of the number of PPV buys and revenue generated by ticket gate sales and sponsorships. Nevertheless, it is almost five times higher than his last pay of $1,025,000 vs Joel Casamayor.
