Tarver filed for bankruptcy 8 days before the fight lmfao

Tarver earned more than $2 million for the fight, the biggest payday of his career, plus a $100,000 bonus that promoter Don King paid him at a post-fight party. And the opportunities for him now will be limitless after his second-round TKO of Jones.

Damn, I guess he had a bit of extra motivation to win. If he didn't win, whatever he made from just being in the fight, probably wouldn't last very long. Oh well, hope he spends his earnings from this fight properly
