Before anyone starts a thread with a link to some other website, I figured I'd get things going.

It looks like Mayweather-Ortiz is going to do at least 1.3 million PPV buys:

MAYWEATHER VS. ORTIZ DOES AT LEAST 1.3 MILLION PPV BUYS

Although final numbers have yet to be tallied, sources close to the information have informed us that last Saturday's clash between undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather and former WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz is expected to do a minimum of 1.3 million pay-per-view buys. Keep in mind that the price of the pay-per-view event was $59.99 for standard definition and $69.99 for high definition, so with an already guaranteed purse of $25 million, and considering that over 50% of households in the United States own HD TVs, Mayweather has likely earned a minimum of $40 million for his 4th round knockout victory.

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

I recorded the replay of Mayweather/Ortiz and I just watched it...simply amazing! I cant remember who mentioned this in the Mayweather/Ortiz thread, but it was great how they added the weigh-in footage and their arrivals to the MGM! There's no doubt in my mind that somebody at HBO just got a promotion behind this idea.

The replay of the fight was great. I found it interesting how Ortiz said that he did not lose his mind. I loved how they interview the guy from the Nevada Boxing Commission and said what May did was legal. I also notice the one guy in Ortiz's camp was pissed off because he did not fight back and when Ortiz blamed his loss on the ref "Don't blame me bro blame the ref" I was a little stunned at that statement.

I agree. Im glad that some of the curiosity was rectified during the extra footage. They should do this after every fight, Im not against knowing whats on the fighters minds DIRECTLY after the fight in their locker rooms, instead of waiting a couple of days.

Bob Arum said they did 1.3m. I personally don't believe this because the official numbers were never released. Wonder why...
