Tonight’s ‘SuperFly’ card on HBO is mere hours away, but hey, Nosy Nellie, aren’t you super concerned with how much sweet sweet moolah scratch cash these boys are making for their fights this evening?
You are? Good! Great. Here are the numbers via the California State Athletic Commission:
Srisaket Sor Rungvisai $170,000
Roman Gonzalez $600,000
Naoya Inoue $182,500
Antonio Nieves $35,000
Carlos Cuadras $62,500
Juan Francisco Estrada $65,000
Srisaket and Gonzalez are both making more than they did for their first fight on March 18, when Srisaket, then the challenger, made $75,000 to upset Gonzalez, who was paid a $550,000 purse that evening. Obviously a big bump for Srisaket, and deservedly so, even if he’s still paid far less than his more famous challenger, and less than Inoue, who will also be defending a 115-pound title on the show.
