ESPN.com's Dan Rafael posted the purses for tonight's Sebastian Zbik vs Julio Cesar Chavez Jr card at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Here's what the lot pulled in:

Sebastian Zbik $292.5K Julio Cesar Chavez Jr $600K
Mikey Garcia $110K Rafael Guzman $20K
Vanes Martirosyan $50K Saul Roman $12.5K
Christy Martin $25K Dakota Stone $3.5K


About as expected for everyone. Chavez is already paid quite well, but is well on his way to being a really serious money player, for at least a few fights. Eventually he'll have to take what probably amounts to an unwinnable fight, but they'll do that the smart way, too, and get major money out of it.  If they can get that fight with Miguel Cotto this September, Top Rank is in basically a no-lose business situation. Everyone will make good money, the fight will sell, and they come out of it either with Chavez knocking off a well-known, very popular fighter, or young Chavez loses to the veteran and they are able to say, "He lost to a great fighter, so what?"
