Manny Pacquiao is going to walk away from the Timothy Bradley fight this Saturday on HBO PPV with a guaranteed $26,000,000, this despite his reported purse to the Nevada State Athletic Commission being six million dollars. There's a whole lot of political and financial maneuvering that goes into the payments to fighters who reside outside of the United States, which results in less being reported as a purse in situations like this and a big number as a "guarantee." A good example is how Saul "Canelo" Alvarez was paid a base purse of $1.2 million against Shane Mosley on the Mayweather vs. Cotto undercard only to lose $360k of that purse to federal taxes.
Pacquiao also could walk away with more than his guarantee based on pay-per-view sales.
As for Bradley, he'll walk away with a $5 million purse, and can also make more depending on PPV sales. For Bradley, this is far and away a career-high payday and he seems to have his head in the right place when it comes to not blowing it as he tells Chris Robinson of Examiner:
"I'm putting that money away, man," Bradley noted with all seriousness. "I aint buying nothing. I got everything I need. I'm not buying anything. Me and my wife, we're going to put that money away so I don't ever have to come back to this game. Once I leave it, I aint never got to come back ever again."
As for the rest of the purses on the televised portion of the card, they break down like this:
Mike Jones ($105,000) vs. Randall Bailey ($100,000)
Jorge Arce ($300,000) vs. Jesus Rojas ($25,000)
Guillermo Rigondeaux ($103,000) vs. Teon Kennedy ($70,000)
