He is being paid not cos he's a great prospect, and has any great skills but cos he's good for the boxing, everytime he fights he brings big numbers. In his pro debut he sold over a 100,000 worth of tickets.
Now before you think how racist it might be that he is being paid that much cos he is white, fergitboutit, it's bout the green.
We all know Lee is a very limited fighter, and wont get much better but cos its the pro's, green dictates.
