SHARE BOWE OWES, NEVADA AGENCY RULES

The Nevada State Athletic Commission continued to hold up heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe's $2.9 million check because he hasn't paid sanctioning fees to the three world boxing organizations.

Sandy Johnson, secretary to the commission, said Bowe owes $250,000 to the World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation for sanctioning Friday fight's against Evander Holyfield as a championship fight. The $2.9 million was the basic purse paid Bowe, who was expected to earn up to $8 million once his share of the pay-per-view receipts were tallied.
