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.
Here are the numbers:
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)
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)
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
