Here are the purses from last Friday night's ShoBox in Las Vegas, which saw Jessie Vargas defeat Lanardo Tyner in a rough, solid main event, setting up a fight for Vargas on the Mayweather vs Cotto undercard, and Deandre Latimore survive a late push from Milton Nunez in a rather dreary 10-rounder.

Jessie Vargas
$20,000 vs Lanardo Tyner
$13,500
Deandre Latimore
$15,000 vs Milton Nunez
$15,000

So Tyner, the B-side for the main event, was actually the lowest-paid of the TV fighters.

For those who might be interested, Vargas and Latimore are "Mayweather Promotions" fighters, but the promoter of record for this show was Golden Boy Promotions.

Here are the figures from the undercard:

Antonio Orozco

$3,000
David Clark
$1,500 vs Rocco Espinoza
$1,500
Joaquin Chavez
$1,500 vs Jalani Wilson
$1,500

This was entirely a TV-based show, with little of note on the undercard whatsoever.
