Guillermo Rigondeaux has generated a good bit of buzz since his easy win last Friday over Rico Ramos at the Palms in Las Vegas, but nobody was interested enough beforehand to actually attend the fight.
Figures for the show were bleak, as the fight sold a meager 375 tickets, with a gate of $14,525 total. Thank heavens for site fees and TV packaging this time.
Here are the purses from the card:
|Fighter A||Purse||Fighter B||Purse|
|Rico Ramos||$55,000||Guillermo Rigondeaux||$51,500|
|Joel Diaz Jr||$5,000||Guy Robb||$5,000|
|Matt Villanueva||$3,000||Michael Ruiz Jr||$3,500|
|Javier Molina||$2,500||Albert Herrera||$3,500|
|Razvan Cojanu||$500||Rodney Hernandez||$1,200|
|Yusmani Abreu-Mena||$800||Marcus Robinson||$1,000|
When all was said and done and all of the fees and other miscellaneous whatnot was taken out of the purses, Ramos walked away with $44,261 in his net contestant's share, compared to $28,950 for Rigondeaux.
