Why do the UK promoters/TV companies never reveal how much they are paying their fighters??. Goldenboy and Showtime like many of the Amercian promoters and Tv companies again has made it public knowledge of what Sat nights fighter are getting.

I find it interesting how much boxers are getting paid as it gets you thinking how much our world champions right down to the show opener guys are making.

Has anyone got any links to other purse splits for full show etc etc

That's some decent money to be on premium television. I agree that it's not all that much for some of the guys on the card...Im speaking of the ones who are making 150k and up. Those in the 300k neighborhood, aint so bad either...especially at this point of their careers.

I especially feel bad for the guys making 15k. WTF? How can anyone live off of that? By the time you're done paying your trainers, managers, promoters, and so forth...you're left with shit. Now that I think about it, if you're not making shit, then they wont really get much of shit either. Pirog just killed Jacobs's salary potential. Lol

Overall, I'm pumped for this card!
