The main event from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas was as good as advertised, if not better. Living legend Manny Pacquiao did the unthinkable in scoring a split-decision victory over Keith Thurman to claim the WBA welterweight title. Pacquiao not only became the oldest welterweight to ever claim a recognized title, he was the fifth oldest champion ever, regardless of weightclass.

When all was said and done, the 40-year-old Pacquiao not only earned gold, he earned some serious dough. PacMa earned a guaranteed purse of $10 million, according to ESPN. Meanwhile, Thurman, who's continually aiming to cement himself as one of boxing's pound-for-pound best fighters in the world, will collected $2.5 million. 

The co-feature on Fox that pitted IBF super middleweight champion Caleb Plant against Mike Lee delivered the second biggest payday of the card. Plant will reportedly earn $750,000 in his disclosed purse while Lee will get $250,000 for his efforts. Plant finished off Lee via third-round TKO to retain his title.
