Simple question. Facts are facts. Why, in spite of the supposed worldwide infestation of Manny Pacquio's supporters, do Manny Pacquio's PPV's sell less than Floyd Mayweather's?

Simple, more people would rather watch Floyd, for whatever reason, they'd rather watch FM.

Also where are all of the cries of bias when b.s sites like BS, max boxing etc. basically shine Bob Arum's and Manny Pacquiao's shoes online. Yup, the good old double standard at work.

Last time I checked, I dont recall hearing any Pacquiao PPV numbers since the Cotto fight. The Clottey numbers weren't all that publicized (around 700k), cant really remember the Margarito numbers, and as far as the Mosley numbers...where are they?

Im not bashing the guy, but when his PPVs are said and done, it usually gets swept under the rug, or the wool is pulled over people's eyes (by way of Bob announcing Pac's next potential opponent). In Floyd's case, people whore after his PPV numbers before the post-fight presser even begins.

Hell, that dumb ass thread about the Mayweather/Ortiz PPVs numbers caused a huge feminine uproar on this very board...cant forget that. Who knows though?

I really need to see Pac's PPV numbers for all of his fights following the Cotto fight, before I make an assessment. Anybody got 'em?

maybe its something to do with the fact mayweather keeps the suspense builds up by hardly ever fighting? where as pacman fights consistantly. in shorter periods of time, id bet if he didnt fight for a good long time and came back and fought someone he'd get the same numbers just due to hype and suspense.

Maybe that's his strategy. It's somewhat hard for him to find a worthy opponent nowadays, but Manny has his opponents picked for him and promoted as a threat (which they do a good job of), so its easier for him to get fights booked.

Simple, more people would rather watch Floyd, for whatever reason, they'd rather watch FM.


Here are the numbers:
2009
1.Pacquiao-Cotto 1.25M PPV ($70M, $8.8M gate -crowd:15,930)
2.Mayweather-Marquez 1.05M PPV ($52M, $6.8M gate -crowd:13,116)

2010
1.Mayweather-Mosley 1.4M PPV ($78.3M, $11.1 gate -crowd:15,117)
2.Pacquiao-Margarito 1.15M PPV ($64M, $7M+ gate -crowd:41,734)

2011
1.Pacquiao-Marquez 1.41M PPV ($77.6M, $11.6M gate -crowd:16,368.)
2.Mayweather-Ortiz 1.25M PPV ($78.4M, $9M gate -crowd:14,687)

Those Pacquiao fights also generated slightly more than Floyd's fights, and this is not including Pacquiao's fights with De La Hoya, Mosley, Hatton and Clottey fights which generated over $250 million more in revenue. Pacquiao had more fans buy his PPVs, more fans pay at the gate to watch him.

You guys need to do some REAL research before posting irresponsible nonsense and responses like this

and its a smart strategy but it comes with its disadvantages, we all know the only opponent worth while is pacman since hes the only person the public want to see him fight. they may do a good job of it, like with the marquez fight, for once it turned out to be true lol but supposedly didnt he do over a million buys with marquez?

Oh yeah asshole, where are the Pacquiao/Mosley numbers, that we've YET to hear about? Surely you know, since the doped-up stork happened to drop you off here with your mind-boggling, secret squirrel, information that you've blessed us with.

I'm not foolish enough to post anything unless and until I researched several sources. Try ESPN.com, Maxboxing, Philstar etc... All you have to do is type in "Pacquiao PPV numbers" or "Mayweather PPV numbers" on any search engine and you'll find them there.
