he might not get the biggest % from Floyd, but it's the biggest payday out there for PacMan.

All history and woulda/couldas aside, this is still the biggest payday in the history of boxing if it gets made.

floyd produced those 24/7s and made it seem like Canelo was just a ginger destroyer chomping at the bit to show the world he was ready

cause I damn sure was not invested in that fight until I watched those 24/7s

shame because Pacquiao / Rios was more exciting fight to watch

I'm sure Mayweather / Showtime will get creative with hyping up lower tier cats

not sure if this makes a Floyd fight more or less likely... maybe Arum will finally cash out on Manny and try to get one last huge pay day. of course, not holding my breath.

Do fighters/ promotion companies get paid off of those? Like I said, I know in Thailand, a lot of us megabouts are bradcast on network TV live. Do fighters get any of that money?


I mean if so-- Pac will do major numbers in Asia. Does he get paid off of that at all -- or does some Asian company just own the rights to every fight that tehy just pay top rank for in a lump sum for?

Usually it depends on the particular contract. When a
fight is made (at this level) - negotiations are had
about ppv gate share, overall share, tv network share, both
domestic and foreign. Each contract is unique.

Because yea - the fight likely did very good numbers
across Asia even if its draw was tepid in the U.S.

I actually think fans need to factor in global drawing power
versus just American drawing power, as boxing is as big -
and in some cases bigger - in foreign lands as it is here.
Example: Klitschkos do huge numbers across Europe, both
at gate and in viewer numerics, but do not draw here.

>I mean if so-- Pac will do major numbers in Asia. Does he get
>paid off of that at all -- or does some Asian company just own
>the rights to every fight that tehy just pay top rank for in a

I'm sure he gets paid a very good amount from those numbers at this
point, as does Arum.

ppl speaking with their wallets
if the prospects of floyd vs manny are over then both fighters will need to provide intriguing matchups in order to get 1M+ buys
will be interesting to see what floyd can do if he really fights amir khan next

No it wasn't. Pac got knocked out. like cold. Rios
is no A-class pugilist, but he's absolutely not a walk-over
and is as tough as they come. He had business being in the
ring with Pac - it's just that Pac was not "slower/diminished"
as you suggest - he was fast, and precise.

...gonna sell as much as the bum Floyd's gonna fight the month after. Who else y'all want Pac to fight before Floyd?

Cotto 2? 1M PPVs
Marquez 5? Another 1M PPVs
That Russian nobody? Maybe 750K

OKS boxing experts talking like industry suits now, eh?

Riddle me this, who else Money May gonna fight besides Manny that'll get him 2M PPV buys?
