LAS VEGAS -- The bout agreements have been filed with the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the Timothy Bradley Jr.-Juan Manuel Marquez card on Saturday night (HBO PPV, 9 ET) at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Here’s a look at what the fighters on the pay-per-view telecast will earn, according to commission executive director Keith Kizer:

• Marquez, the star of the show, will receive a purse of $4 million to challenge Bradley for his welterweight title. However, Marquez’s overall guaranteed minimum is $6 million. He’ll get $4 million on the night of the fight with the other $2 million coming from other sources of revenue, including Mexican television rights. Bradley will earn $4.1 million for his second title defense. His career-high purse was the $5 million he made to face Manny Pacquiao in June 2012. Bradley and Marquez can also earn more based on how well the pay-per-view sells.

• Former featherweight titleholder Orlando Salido will earn $100,000 to challenge Orlando Cruz for a vacant world title. Cruz will make $65,000.

• Two-time Olympic gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko of Ukraine is getting $100,000 for his pro debut, and his opponent, Jose Luis Ramirez, is getting $25,000.

• For the opening bout of the broadcast, light heavyweight Seanie Monaghan is making $60,000 and Anthony Caputo-Smith will get $20,000.
