Garcia clashed with Golden Boy Promotions several times last year on social media, stressing that he needed to be valued more, not only with his pay, but with his main event status as well. A contract extension in September patched the relationship back together, and both parties have been happy ever since, highlighted by Garcia’s pay, and being showcased at the arena of which the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks play their home games.

In the co-main event, former world champion Jorge Linares will earn $100,000 in his fight against Carlos Morales, who will earn $80,000.

Alexis Rocha ($75,000) and Blair Cobbs ($40,000), who each will be fighting in separate bouts, are the next two highest earners of the evening.

Garcia worth that, almost as absurd as only 30 paid to Fonseca. That's one way to unmotivate your opponent.
