Yes, I understand that this was the official figure reported by Golden Boy Promotions.

Rumor has it that a different number was reported according to HBO's IRS filing, whatever the hell that is. Supposedly the number was closer to 450,000 which sounds alot more realistic of what Marquez-Mayweather did. I remember leading up to the fight thinking... this fight has a 24/7 countdown but it's going to fall far short of anything spectacular regarding the numbers.

Just was wondering if anyone else is skeptical of that "reported" figure especially when Floyd was so quick to agree to a 50/50 split with Manny.

I have a guy digging into this subject with some very credible sources.

I would think that it is absolutely hilarious if the fight did 45% of what was advertised to the public.

What does Mayweather - Mosley do?

I'm just saying... if you had asked me prior to the numbers release what it did, I'd say 450,000 is about right.

Mosley-Mayweather, I'm guessing 800,000 buys.

I take all the factors into consideration, economy, both guys being B-side attractions in all big fights.

You and I had this conversation the night before the fight I believe...I think the absence of PPV's was a big contributing factor to success. I don't remember what I guessed (I think 700k), but I do remember you and I talking about the insane marketing push this fight got.

I think Mosely/May is going to do at least 1 million.

Yeah apparently the fight got a huge push amongst the sponsors for the event.

Bigger sponsor related push than De la hoya-Mayweather.

I'm just saying... Mayweather-Marquez 450,000 sounds like a very proper number. Especially considering the after effects of his fights in which the most of the public doesn't feel like they got their monies worth.

I DEFINITELY thought those numbers were inflated. I mean, 1 million on the dot? Come on...really?

Personally, I just figured they were counting the movie theater buys as well.

I was expecting about 500,000 tops.

That is actually what I was going to say. 1 movie theatre ticket purchase is technically a PPV buy...is it not?

I thought the numbers definitely sounded inflated. And then Pac-Cotto doing 1.25 seemed like a lot too. It kind of reminded me of the way baseball players were suddenly hitting more home runs in the 90's. PPV on steroids.

Honestly I figured they were just counting buys in a different way than before somehow. But I supposed bold faced lying is just as likely.
