Big fight referee Kenny Bayless is set to pull in a tidy sum for the highly anticipated title fight in Las Vegas.
And it seems everyone involved in the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight is going to earn a lot of money. But I don’t think there were ever any doubts about that, with extortionate ticket prices and Mayweather set to earn a staggering $150 million alone.
Now the fight’s referee has been announced: 65-year-old Kenny Bayless.
He’ll earn a grand total of $25,000 for overseeing the bout. That’ll be a nice addition to his bank balance – but it comes with a lot of pressure. This is, afterall, one of the biggest fights in the history of the sport.
The judges will also earn $20,000 each – setting world records for the amount paid. Everyone is going to have to be on their game for this one come May 2!
