This is an excellent buy-rate.

I honestly think that Mayweather generates that kind of buy rate because so many people are waiting to see him lose. Even though Floyd has established himself as one of the best P4P boxers in the world, with Manny and he debating number one and number two positions around the world. Also Floyd is a great marketing strategist. When he had that wrestling gig where he and Big Show "Went at it." What boxing match was that just before? I can't remember now. Was it before the Marquez fight?

Anyway, that kind of marketing strategy set forth a PR campaign to get people interesting in boxing, who may not have otherwise been interested in boxing. (The Wrestling crowd.) And despite so many people hating on Floyd, the general perception and hating of Floyd drives tickets. I think there has to be a strong influence here, because you have to consider that it wasn't Delahoya in the other corner, or Pacquiao, it was Victor Ortiz. And no disrespect to Victor, but aside from HBO subscribers who saw his FOTY with Berto, a limited opponent, this shows that Floyd can do well without a huge superstar in the other corner.

I am also interested in finding out how the resurrecting of closed-circuit TV, now at about $15-20 a ticket, how much of that 1.3 million was taken in from the theater broadcast? We have had Floyd and Manny fights on closed-circuit system for a couple of years now, in addition to the PPV.

The winning and the hating are combining themselves to create massive amounts of money for "Money Mayweather."

Those are pretty good numbers for Ortiz being a dancing partner, and that was his first time on a PPV main event.

Say what you want about Floyd, but he's made himself into the money generating machine he is today, credit to him in that respect.


I must admit, in the run up to May-Ortiz it felt like 'must see TV' for a boxing fan. And since Ortiz was a relative nobody coming in, that was all down to Mayweather.

I don't buy that Black. I am a boxing fan but I won't waste time nor money on junk. That is exactly what this event was & I had a far more fruitful afternoon shopping.

Maybe you meant that for the average sports fan it may have been must see TV?

Fuck no. Why would I waste my money on that junk? There are some fights I will go out of my way to watch & accordingly plan my day around them. Neither fight is one worth wasting any time on let alone money.

I don't begrudge Mayweather doing 1.3 I just think that there are 1,300,000 fools out there happy to throw money away & I am not one of them.

Apparently the numbers go like this

Mayweather vs DLH - 2.4 Million 5/5/2007
Mayweather vs Hatton - 915k 12/8/2007
Mayweather vs Marquez - 1.05 Million 9/19/2009
Mayweather vs Mosley - 1.4 Million 5/1/2010
Mayweather vs Ortiz - At Least 1.3 Million 9/17/2011

Pacquiao vs DLH - 1.25 Million 12/6/2008
Pacquiao vs Hatton - 850k 5/2/2009
Pacquiao vs Cotto - 1.25 Million 11/14/2009
Pacquiao vs Clottey - 700k 03/13/2010
Pacquiao vs Margarito - 1.15 Million 11/13/2010
Pacquiao vs Mosley - 1.3 Million 05/7/2011

What Black said was right that it was an impressive feat for FMJ, but you can also question that a bit considering the undercards and this was also apparently Floyd's most advertized fight in his career.
Pacquiao did beat Mayweather once, in the 2009 showdowns when he faced Cotto, and Mayweather faced Marquez. I can't wait to see the numbers Pacquiao vs Marquez III will do. I think it might do better.
