Sup All?

I am very grateful to my great friend and astute boxing historian Ryan (a.k.a "The Hitman) for his many years of research and dedication in compositing this list from multiple sources. Thank you Ryan!

He has granted me permission to distribute the list:

o DLH’s boxer purse is $20 million. Floyd’s a purse of at least $10 million that will probably increase to between $15 million and $18 million once the pay-per-view numbers are tallied.


12/2008:

Top Rank, which doesn't promote Klitschko or Rahman, shocked the boxing industry last week when it submitted a winning purse bid of $12.001 million for the mandatory fight. The Top Rank bid beat an $11 million offer from Rahman promoter Don King and a $10.7 million bid by K2 Promotions, Klitschko's company.

Because the promotional rights to Klitschko-Rahman were won on a purse bid, Arum is the beneficiary of an obscure WBC rule that gives the winning promoter one option on the winner of the fight in his next title defense. Under the purse bid terms, Klitschko (35-2, 34 KOs) is due 65 percent of the winning bid ($7,800,065) and Rahman (41-5-1, 33 KOs) gets 35 percent ($4,200,350).

March 12, 2011: Cotto ($1 million) vs. Mayorga ($50K); Lenny Zappa ($65K) vs. Miguel Vasquez ($150K); Tommy Z ($50K) v Bryant ($1,500), Foreman ($100K) vs. Pawal Wolek ($75K)

April 9, 2011: Katsidis 200K, Guerrero 125K, Malignaggi 75K, Cotto 30K, Kirkland 35K, Ishida 35K, Garcia 20K, Campbll 35K, Chakhkiev 25K, Jolley 5K

4/2011:
Maidana: $500K, Morales: $250K (plus upside and Mexico TV)

May 1 2010: Mayweather guaranteed $22.5 million, Mosley $7 million. May to get up to $40 million total w/ PPV revenue.

That was a long list and I started losing focus after a while, but your mentioning the 2011 numbers made me go back to look at them. Ha! Good stuff, but of course I'm disputing that, not because I have proof, just because I wonder where Bleacher Report got their numbers from.
If that's the case then the Saint doesn't need Floyd, he should just fight Marquez again, go lead his people and dodge some more taxes. He can find Freddie Roach a spot in his cabinet and hopefully I'll never hear a peep from them again.

I remember that thread where that bozo was trying to "out research" us, and kept giving us flimsy evidence. Too funny!

This list was great though! I saw that some of those guys that we give a bunch of credit to, didn't really start making bigger money until the latter part of their careers. Fact is, they were headlining PPVs earlier in their careers, and were much more marketable back then, than what what we have today. Now everybody wants to pull the whole "Im undefeated" bullshit, but fail to impress in the ring, let alone, sell tickets.

Oscar was pulling in decent numbers back in the day, and that whopping $30M from the back end money in the Mayweather fight was CRAZY! Shit!

Just to think about it, he kept most, if not all of that money. Funny how guys thought Oscar was keeping all of that money back in the day when they thought he left Arum, but he really left about 2 years before the Mayweather fight, so the Bobfather was still milking the cow.

Those Pacquiao fights at the lower weights, along those Barrera and Morales war would've given me the notion they got over the 500,000 hump with PPV numbers, but maybe it was the packed out arenas that fooled me. Those live gates must have been serious!

Now, the thing that got me was the enormous numbers pulled in for those HW back in the early 90's! Geez! Those guys were making a killing, though Im sure PPVs were damn near $70 back then, or even $50 (just guessing on the $50 part). The HW division reigned for decades, but that Tyson, Holyfield, Bowe, Gollata (sp), Lewis, era was ridiculous!!!

the funny part of it all is that ppl will point to selling out venues as something important. it's nice....but i'd rather get that ppv money as a fighter/manager/promoter. far more to be made than selling out a venue.

Exactly! No way in hell FMJ would want the "megafight" to happen anywhere outside of Vegas. If Manny was smart about his money, then he wouldn't want it anywhere outside of the MGM Grand.

Seriously, there are close to 17k seats at the MGM Grand, so where does that leave the rest viewers who want to see it? Yep, you got it...on a damn tv for about $70+. Pac could have sold more PPVs in the Clottey and Margarito fight, had he not fought in a 100k seat stadium.

Sounds like the point though...sell out seat in a smaller venue, and make the rest of the people watch it from home, and gain more money for PPV sells. Just my theory though...

Thanks bro ! I was always curious because I wanted to match the 850K that Floyd did with him to what Manny was able to muster.
