    Default Mayweather vs Pacquiao would be a £180 million fight.

    This is an article by Colin Hart of the Sun, one of my favourite boxing writers.

    Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao to rack up 180m | The Sun |Sport|SunSport Columnists

    If this fight doesn't go ahead it would be total insanity.

    I like him because he doesn't try bumming British fighters. Before the Hatton-Mayweather fight pretty much every other British writer was saying how good a chance Hatton had, Hart just said he didn't expect Hatton to do much against the best fighter in the world and he was right. He says what he thinks rather than what people want him to say.

    Must admit it was funny when 70's Geroge Foreman told him to "put that cigarette out or i'll ram it down your throat"

    I also just read that Roach said the fight will happen and they will go to 17 days cut off for the blood with urine everyday up to the fight, the video was on youtube but it has been removed.

    I also read that they would have to run it by Manny first.If Manny dont agree we will no that he doesnt want to fight #floyd.

    I hope the money issue doesnt mess this fight up,ino they should do what Hopkins and Jones did the winner get 60% and the loser 40%.

    Writers and Promoters just don't get it!

    There won't be "ANY" PPV's that break the 2 Million PPV Buyers (Television) with today's technology.

    How many of you actually bought the Mayweather/Mosley fight?

    It's crazy money and unrealistic considering that economic times are hard and like you say, people will often use streams to watch fights.

    It's an important fight and it needs to be made, but I find all the talk of potential yields to be quite boring. Who really cares about the gate of a fight besides the money hungry fighters and the promoters? All we should care about is that we get a fight. Mayweathers retirement pot is something I have no interest in. And Pac's too for that matter.

    It would destroy 2 million buys. Easily. And go on to break any previous record set, that being PBF/OLDH. Again, easily.

    Get with the vibe man. People from all sorts different demographics who have never once bought a PPV have been saying for a while now they'd gladly throw down the money to see this, above and beyond your typical boxing fans.

    I have no idea the full extent of it, by how much, but it will easily eclipse all modern day PPV records.

    Bearing that in mind, I'm still skeptical it will be made.

    No doubt it does very well, but as we saw with Mayweather Mosley they make up the predictions and they inevitably fall short. I can see this doing very well, but 180 million is bonkers money. Maybe it will and maybe not, but I will be surprised if it manages that.

    You are confusing "buys" with the popularity of the fight.

    Yes of course I beleive PAC/PBF could very well be one of the most "Viewed" fights ever, but that is not the point.

    If it does 3 million PPV buys it'll make $180 million. Then you have the Vegas money, sponsorship, foreign TV money. Maybe close to £180 million. The fighters could make around £45 million each, Floyd would make more due to the fact that he's one of the promoters. The question is does Manny want to risk spending nine or ten rounds getting battered in the biggest fight in history? That's what he'd be remembered for in future, it would tarnish his previous career to a large extent. If he feels he's got enough money he can retire or he can make unrealistic demands, blame the collapse of the fight on Floyd, fight Margarito in a Texas farewell and top his pension up by ten million or so. I wouldn't believe anything Roach or anybody else says right now.

    I'm not confusing anything. I'm telling you if the fight gets made it will destroy the PPV record.

    I get your angle, we've had this discussion before...that there is internet piracy etc. But was it not before the last time my prediction was one of the few correct ones, higher then every one elses? Like say, Pac/Cotto?

    I was hoping that Floyd's win would keep the Pactards away for a couple of weeks at least.
