Money talks, Anthony Pettis walks ... all the way to the bank to cash his $650,000 check.

“Showtime” scored beaucoup bucks by defeating aging pugilist Roy Jones Jr. atop the Gamebred Boxing 4 pay-per-view (PPV) event last weekend in Milwaukee, more than triple his payout for his last UFC win as lightweight champion (see those numbers here).

Jones Jr. took home an event-high $700,000.

That’s according to a report from MMA Fighting, which also has former UFC champion Vitor Belfort banking $400,000 for his boxing win over fellow Octagon export Ronaldo Souza. “Jacare” was paid $200,000 in defeat to the 46 year-old “Phenom” (full results here).
