The purse breakdown for Saturday’s Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley trilogy matchups has been released. Yahoo’s Kevin Iole has the list from yesterday’s press conference, and it includes the purses of the non-televised preliminary card fighters.
In case the picture isn’t clear enough, here’s an easier format, complete with the matchups.
147 lbs: Manny Pacquiao ($7 million + PPV points) vs. Timothy Bradley ($4 million + PPV points)
168 lbs: Arthur Abraham ($500,000) vs. Gilberto Ramirez ($140,000)

168 lbs: Leon Bauer ($1,500) vs TBA
126 lbs: Devin Haney ($3,000) vs Rafael Vazquez ($2,000)
(TBA is apparently working for free, as he’s known to do in the UFC.)
As you should now by know just based on UFC events alone, what’s on the sheet isn’t a full representation of how much these fighters will earn. Top Rank’s Bob Arum told the media that Pacquiao’s guaranteed money will be $20 million. Both Pacquiao and Bradley will share an undetermined % of the PPV revenue, as they did for their 2nd fight, but not the 1st.
This is obviously a stepdown from the $80 million guaranteed (not including PPV money) for Pacquiao’s superfight with Floyd Mayweather, but otherwise consistent with his other paydays in previous fights over the years. Bradley, while not a PPV draw and one who has only headlined 1 PPV outside of the Pacquiao trilogy, has quietly been a very strong earner in boxing. His last 10 fights have all resulted in seven-figure purses. He received a $1.9 million purse for his TKO win over Brandon Rios on HBO late last year. Here are the rest of his $1+ million paydays, per Bloody Elbow’s John Nash.
