Keep in mind with the higher paid non-americans there are tax laws in play too. "Bonus" money is treated differently than "salary" to fight in some countries regarding taxes...

I hope Hunt got a fat performance bonus on top of that. He probably only has a few fights left and will need the money.

What's great is how Adrien Broner makes more per fight than the entire card and people are talking about Stephens makes too much. Just don't get it. First they need paid more now they need paid less. Overall a dick head boxer with little name recognition outside of boxing circles is making more than the whole card.
