Manny Pacquiao has a guaranteed $20 million prize money in his April 12 rematch against unbeaten American boxer Timothy Bradley Jr., according to a report on ESPN.com.
This $20 million guaranteed money is $2 million more than the $18 million he was guaranteed for his November 2013 fight against Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios. However, it’s $6-million less than what he received when he fought Bradley for the first time in June 2012.
ESPN.com also reported that Bradley has a guaranteed purse of $6 million, $1-million more from his guaranteed pay in the first fight.
PPV Views and Profits
During their first clash, Bradley had controversially beaten Pacquiao via split decision when they fought in June 2012. Most observers had scored the bout in favor of Pacman, but Bradley was still able to win over the judges.
According to Top Rank chief executive Bob Arum, both Pacquiao and Bradley will also get a share of the pay-per-view profits.
The first fight between Pacquiao-Bradley generated approximately 890,000 PPV buys.
