Per the Nevada State Athletic Commission, here are the purse figures for Saturday night's event in Las Vegas, main evented by Amir Khan's five-round knockout win over Zab Judah.

Amir Khan $1,072,500 Zab Judah $500,000
Peter Quillin $17,500 Jason LeHoullier $14,000
Gary Russell Jr $15,000 Eric Estrada $12,000
James Kirkland $22,500 Alexis Hloros $7,000
Ronny Rios $6,000 Noe Lopez Jr $5,000
Bryant Jennings $2,500 Theron Johnson $3,500
Josiah Judah $2,000 Rafael Jastrzebski $3,500
Jamie Kavanagh $3,500 Marcos Herrera $2,500


I would say that both LeHoullier and Estrada damn sure earned every bit of their money, as they each took pretty nasty beatings from superior opponents without backing down. Estrada gave Russell a nice eight rounds, which were all Russell, but the underdog kept himself hanging around in the fight despite being outskilled to a big degree. LeHoullier was beaten on and was a short notice opponent, and his corner pulled him out of the fight, but he was right there with Quillin and sure didn't run from contact. Hloros also reportedly (I didn't see the fight) went guns blazing against Kirkland, and was wiped out quickly, but came to fight. So the three main undercard opponents each showed up for their money.

As for Judah, well, that might be the last $500,000 payday he ever sees. It also might not, but that performance has been thoroughly criticized, and rightly so.

We'll have the attendance numbers in a little over a week for those interested. The "official" number was a little over 7,000, but even relatively low-level players were offered a pair of complimentary tickets to the fight, so we'll see what really comes back.
