Timothy Bradley will make a $2 million purse for Saturday's HBO main event fight against Diego Chaves, who will bring in $35,000, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Bradley (31-1, 12 KO) will be a heavy favorite against Chaves (23-2, 19 KO), whose last fight was a DQ loss in August against Brandon Rios. Bradley last fought on April 12, losing to Manny Pacquiao, which followed a win over Juan Manuel Marquez in October 2013.

There are two other fights set to air on HBO. In a vacant WBO middleweight title clash, Matt Korobov (24-0, 14 KO) will make a $160,000 purse, compared to $69,000 for Andy Lee. Junior welterweights Mauricio Herrera and Jose Benavidez will make $200,000 and $90,000, respectively.

In a pair of preliminary bouts, Seanie Monaghan will make $35,000 to face Daniel Regi, who will pocket $8,000, and Mikael Zewski will make $15,000 for his fight with Jeremy Bryan, who will make $10,000.
