Timothy Bradley to earn $1million more than Amir Khan in Las Vegas

Amir Khan and Timothy Bradley's purses revealed by the Nevada Athletic Commission

THE Nevada Athletic Commission has released details of the paydays the Las Vegas headliners are set to pick up this weekend.

Timothy Bradley leads the way with a tidy $2 million for his fight – staged at The Cosmopolitan – against Diego Chaves. The figure is some way short of the $6 million he earned while losing to Manny Pacquiao in April, but dwarfs the $35,000 on offer for Chaves.

Over at the MGM Grand Garden Arena – a much bigger arena – Amir Khan is set to pick up $950,000 while his rival, Devon Alexander, will bank $600,000. The Brit’s purse is likely to rise significantly due to him taking home a portion of the PPV revenue from the event.

Khan has already spent $20,000 on his shorts
