    $630,000 was taken out for anti-doping tests and tickets. Floyd's team got Canelo to agree to US Anti-Doping Agency drug testing for the f!ght (something that Manny Pacquiao had reportedly refused in negotiations with Floyd). It looks like Floyd had to foot the $25,000 bill for the doping tests, though.

    According to Pro Boxing-Fans.com, there were only 50 complementary tickets given out for the f!ght (basically, just Floyd and Canelo's families), and everyone else had to pay. With ticket prices ranging from $350 to $2,000, Floyd must have bought a few hundred tickets to reach that $605,000 figure. Considering he only f!ghts twice a year, lives in Las Vegas (where the f!ght was), and employs a ma##ive entourage, it's not hard to understand how he bought so many tickets.

    Floyd is expected to make even more once the official pay-per-view numbers are in. Some estimates have him taking home $100 million total from the f!ght.

    Where and how is this verified or corroborated, and why would anyone handle or accept a hand-written live check for that amount? This looks like complete and utter bull****.

    That's for the random drug testings they did.

    Why not? I'm sure golden boy promotions is good for it.
