Brandon Rios Paid $925K For Fight, Diego Chaves Only Gets $25K


Rios vs Chaves

To add insult to last night’s embarrassing DQ loss the purse numbers for last night’s HBO fight were released and Diego Chaves definitely got the short end of the stick.

According to ESPN’s Dan Rafael here are the purses for last night’s HBO card: 

Rios $925k, Chaves $25k (but more via Argentina TV), Vargas $120k, Novikov $105k.

Chaves was ahead on 2 of the 3 judge’s cards when he was DQ’d last night. It’s crazy to think that he could’ve won the fight and only would’ve banked 25K.
