According to Sports Business Daily, the Manny Pacquiao vs. Joshua Clottey HBO pay-per-view registered 700,000 pay-per-view buys with $35.3 million dollars in revenue. A crowd of nearly 51,000 boxing fans turned out to watch Pacquiao retain his WBO welterweight title by dominating Clottey for a twelve round decision at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

HBO Sports President Ross Greenburg was very pleased with the number. He expected around 500,000-600,000 buys.

“We didn’t think Manny could carry the load to this degree. He’s attracting more than just the hardcore boxing fan," Greenburg.




That is great for no 24/7 and no dance partner.

Mayweather-Mosley will DESTROY that number... My guess is they come close to 2 million!

Agreed, on one hand it is very impressive given the overall lack of interest in the fight and no 24/7, on the other hand it will given Floyd a stronger position at the negotiation table as PBF/Mosley is sure to smash this number.

In some ways it only probably makes a fight between the 2 (PBF/Pac) more unlikely given Arum is not going to move from his 50/50 shared purse stance should they decide to fight.

I think a fair measuring tool would be to compare Pacquiao-Cotto and Mayweather-Mosley... If Mayweather-Mosley crushes that number then that should tell us where they stand as far as drawing power. Cotto is a bigger star than Mosley so that actually gives Pac a slight advantage.

Agreed. Given the lack of promotion, that's a very impressive number.

I think there is more ' heat' on this one than Pac-Cotto. For one it is a GBP fight and BO are right up their ass when it comes to promoting their fights.

Secondly Mayweather has gotten a heap of free press over this drug testing fiasco with Pac and thus I think this has parlayed into his fight with Shane. This baby definately has got more legs and I wouldn't be surprised to see it push Oscar/PBF for numbers.

Oh I agree with you... But let's not act like Pacquiao didn't get any free press from this drug testing fiasco. My father (casual fan) wanted to see the Pac fight last week because he wanted to see how he looked physically. If Mayweather-Mosley pushes Floyd-De La Hoya for PPV numbers then Pacquiao can forget about 50-50 and rightfully so.

Another factor which might help Mayweather-Molsey is the fact that the buzz that non boxing fans are getting is that Mosley is no joke and they saw him confront Mayweather after the Marquez fight, so this confidence that boxing fans have on Mosley is trickling down towards non-boxing fans, or as I call them Infidels. He he he.

Regardless I think Mayweather wins this one easy on the scorecards. He mifhgt get thumped up a bit but he should be comfortably ahead after the 10th.
