Amir Khan Grabs $1.07 Million, Judah To Earn $500K

By Ryan Burton
 
According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Amir Khan will receive $1,072,500 while Zab Judah will receive $500,000 for their junior welterweight title unification bout on Saturday night.  Khan will also receive lucrative pay per view revenue from the UK. Both fighters are also going to receive additional money through their personal promotional companies.
 
As you may recall, Khan's team offered Tim Bradley a 50-50 split of the UK pay per view revenue when they unsuccessfully tried to a fight agreement with the undefeated Californian.  When the fight fell through, Khan's team reached an agreement with a 55-45 split, but Khan would not give the Brooklynite any of the UK money.  Feeling slighted, Judah boycotted the UK media since he wasn't receiving a piece of the British action.

Zab won the lottery after that performance... Only one man was worth the pay check and his name isn't Zab... Zab & Haye should start giving tips on to how to get a good contract deal....

[QUOTE=SpitBalla;10884737]Yea it's hilarious these retards are blaming Khan for being popular and getting paid his minimum amount that is contractually obligated to him. Judah ain't that popular anymore, so his promotion company wasn't able to secure him an HBO fight…

Amir is the bigger draw here... i dont get why so many are sayin he doesn't deserve the bigger pay day. Zab is all but done. and Amir should finish him off tonight.
