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.

Dan Rafael ESPN blog : http://espn.go.com/blog/dan-rafael/post/_/...rclays-center-2

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

cheers

You're right about it being rude, but it's just as rude in America (at least in corporate America). The issue is the secretive BBBofC. When I wrote my article on boxer's wages I contacted the BBBofC as well as their American counterparts. They basically told me to sod off. Haha in a nice, stiff upper lip sort of way. The exact email was phrased along the lines that I should contact the boxers and their managers, but the message was clear.
Nevada were the most forthcoming. New York gave me some bogus freedom of information nonsense. I don't think that I contacted CA though, haha, can't remember.

DaProf is right that the commissions have that info. ESPN's guy probably also has the connections with the promoters and managers etc.

On the general topic of wage transaprency, I think that wage info. should be available to all, in boxing and in the corporate world etc. If you're making good money but are an absolute dipshit, while a star performer is getting the shaft, that should be known. Earnings should be based on what you produce.
