He has granted me permission to distribute the list:

12/2008:

Top Rank, which doesn't promote Klitschko or Rahman, shocked the boxing industry last week when it submitted a winning purse bid of $12.001 million for the mandatory fight. The Top Rank bid beat an $11 million offer from Rahman promoter Don King and a $10.7 million bid by K2 Promotions, Klitschko's company.

Because the promotional rights to Klitschko-Rahman were won on a purse bid, Arum is the beneficiary of an obscure WBC rule that gives the winning promoter one option on the winner of the fight in his next title defense. Under the purse bid terms, Klitschko (35-2, 34 KOs) is due 65 percent of the winning bid ($7,800,065) and Rahman (41-5-1, 33 KOs) gets 35 percent ($4,200,350).

Maidana: $500K, Morales: $250K (plus upside and Mexico TV)

May 1 2010: Mayweather guaranteed $22.5 million, Mosley $7 million. May to get up to $40 million total w/ PPV revenue.
