The commission also disclosed the payouts from the event.  Manny Pacquiao received $10M (although likely more) for his fight with Keith Thurman who received $2.5M (although likely more).  Pacquiao received an approved advance of $2 million but also paid $4.22M in federal taxes.  He paid $150,000 in sanction fees.  Also under incidentals, he paid $340,952.02 in flights and $200,000 in hotels.  His share was $1,789,047.33.

Payout Perspective:

Notable that on a card where 1,675 were comped, Pacquiao still paid $1.3M for tickets.  Of the reported $10M, he netted $1.7M.  He is receiving more than the reported amount but it is still an astronomical amount to pay.  The lowest paid fighter on the card, Libranza made just $3K in a KO win over someone who made three times as much as him, Carlos Maldonado.  The 25-year-old Filipino is 19-1.
