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.



Not to mention, PBF vs. JMM did more than Pac vs JMM I & II COMBINED.

Irrelevant because the Pacquiao-Marquez fights were before Pacquiao fought DLH, and the Mayweather-Marquez fight was after Mayweather fought DLH. Both there numbers were increased by DLH.

Mayweather before DLH: His highest was against Gatti and Judah at 350,000-360,000 buys
Pacquiao before DLH: His highest was against Marquez at 400,000 buys

Can't compare those 2 fights, haha. A fairer assessment would be to compare this fight with Marquez to Mayweather's with Marquez, as they are both fights since after the fought DLH.


Wow, this is still going on? The "handsome young queer" thing was very funny. C'mon now, puttting aside who had the bigger increase post ODLH and the dubious ODLH metric altogether, are you really comparing a rematch of classic first fight to the Gatti and Judah numbers? Stop. Anyway, the latest Pac/Marquez fight should outdo the Floyd/Marquez fight especially since the former is the bookend to a good triliogy.

Yeah that "handsome young queer" statement was a very contradicting, ass-backwards, and funny effort...all in one breath (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) In my opinion, Floyd may have somewhat accidently promoted the JMM/Pac rubber match, while trying to justify his reasons for fighting JMM.

He kept reiterating the fact that he's fighting the guy that he thought "actually beat Pacquiao twice"...Im thinking that he wanted to put in the viewer's heads that JMM had a good chance at giving him a hard time in their '09 clash, but instead it made people talk up a JMM/Pac rubber match.

I hear people that know less than nothing about whats going on in boxing, talk about JMM probably "really beat Pac in the 2nd fight", he gave Pac "two ties (draws)", "some Mexican dude was beating him both fights", etc. These are actual comments that I have heard from outsiders, not mine. Im pretty sure they got these ideas from the statements made by none other than FMJ.

So if they hear about the rubber match and decide to buy it, then more power to both fighters and their PPV numbers next month. At least the ones who really dont know JMM will have somewhat of an idea of how the fight go. Thats just my take on it...

Where's that troller that was losing sleep over the PPV numbers not being announced?

"Its now "20" days since the fight and STILL no confirmation on the ppv buys. Something is definitely fishy."
