It pays to have Al Haymon. He can get a prospect who hasn't beaten anyone six times as much as the formal world champ he's fighting.

Dejan likely gets a boatload from a tv deal in his country.

Just shows how hard it is for some boxers, unless you're at that higher end it's hard to make a decent living.

$25k with training expenses etc is **** all.

Yeah. One of those boxers should drag him up on the scale from his cushy front row seat at the weigh-in and tweet his weight for all the world to see.

In which bout? It's a triple-header.

Salgado vs. Mendez II - hard to pick, but I think Salgado grinds out another decision.

Zaveck vs. Thurman - I think the kid finally gets exposed. Zaveck UD. Or, robbery. I don't think Zaveck gets stopped. (cuts or otherwise)

Hopkins vs. Cloud - end of the road for B-Hop. He will do his damnedest to spoil but simply won't do enough work (not that Cloud's work rate is amazing). Cloud UD.

People from the audience should tip Zaveck as his purse clearly doesn't reach the minimum wage.

Complete slap in the face.

Zaveck has already headlined a big HBO card; Thurman hasn't.

Zaveck is a former champ, and fought in five world title bouts. Thurman is a mid-carder who only recently graduated to 10-rounders and was still doing 8-rounders less than a year ago.
