Pacquiao vs. Thurman purses
The fighter purses are out for Saturday night’s Manny Pacquiao vs. Keith Thurman pay-per-view event. Officially, Pacquiao’s purse is listed at $10 million, while Keith Thurman’s is $2.5 million. Per ESPN’s Dan Rafael, their respective guarantees are much higher than what’s written on the Nevada Athletic Commission’s sheet. It’s common knowledge at this point that Pacquiao’s guarantee is in the neighborhood of $20 million. This is Thurman’s first PPV main event, so this is surely a career-high payday for the WBA welterweight champion.
