It was a good fight, they deserved more, that's some UFC type of purse right there. But it was FNF that's why they got low purses.

WOW WOW WOW. Jessie Vargas got paid 100k to be the UNDERCARD'S UNDERCARD on a PPV. This is ridiculously low for a title fight.

This is what pay should be for most fighters without the HBO & Showtime inflation and I think they sold 5k tickets which is good and dwarfs overpaid guys like Berto.
It shouldn't have been for a title, I forgot all about it until the fight started. Even with all the nonsense titles in boxing, Peterson shouldn't have one after failing a drug test.

What many here also do not realize, is that a fighter only walks away with about 30%-35% of their actual purse. NO Exceptions!
People gotta be paid. First you have their team: trainers, promotor, managers and other expenses all take their slice. That might leave about 55-65% of their purse left. When they are done, uncle sam comes in and picks the bones dry for another 15-39% of what is left (depending on the tax bracket they are left with)

They should be glad they got paid, Peterson should have been banned and stripped and Holt didn't deserve a title shot.
