may-cottoMay 11, 2012 – NEW YORK -- HBO Sports® reported today that 1.5 million pay-per-view buys were generated from the May 5 super welterweight title fight between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The fight was promoted by Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions.

The 1.5 million buy total generated $94 million in pay-per-view revenue.

The performance of Mayweather-Cotto ranks as the second highest grossing non-heavyweight pay-per-view event in boxing history. No. 1 all-time is Mayweather’s record-setting showdown with Oscar de la Hoya ($137 million) in 2007.

Mayweather owns a perfect 43-0 record as a professional prizefighter.

Mayweather vs. Cotto along with the co-feature of Alvarez vs. Mosley will replay exclusively on HBO Saturday, May 12 at 10:15 p.m. ET/ PT.

Yes Mayweather the best and Pac is next as long as he taks the test/
and accepts the 40 mil Pactards be real mayweather the bigger draw so 60-40 a fair deal.

amayseng says:

ali please do not use the term "pactard"

you are a solid analyst but that term is for young punks.

i think pac is a bigger draw globally than floyd...

the cotto floyd fight last weekend was excellent, it was exciting and i truly enjoyed it. im glad floyd stayed in and fought as well as boxed...

60-40 for mayweather is reasonable. compare mayweather vs cotto #'s to bradley pac #'s. the truth will be in the numbers. no excuses about who fought who or when. mayweather who i dislike just pulled in 1.5 million buys. if pac doesnt clear 1 million buys the proof is in the numbers no matter what emotions you have over this. if pac doesnt get 1 million buys globally then 60-40 is more then fair. floyd doesnt want the fight in my opinion so if manny wants the fight he will concede on the purse. 60 -40 fair.

SCLA Ali, do you intend to be a know-nothing muthasucka all of your mudholed boys-in-the-hood stupidsitition life? Money May-Cotto bout didn't even sell out the live gate. And the large precentage of eyeballs on those PPV tubes were Latins zooming in on Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto. They drew the large crowd, not Money May.

You will not admit it, and you urbanite Ebonicans will be all up in my grill for spittin' da hardy-hardcore TRUTH! But in the hood, maybe you and about 150 brothas and dey girls and a hand full of playas and dey hos on the U.S. mainland bought the PPV telecast. And 10 of you muthaMaynuthuggers put your papers together and bought the PPV and made cash on the side by having a party and charging $10 a head and buying and bringing some 40s, crack and weed, and you probably got 500 or so takers. The other 1,500 got kick the double fudge out by the fire marshal. So when you sum it up, Money May drew roughly about 3,000 PPV by himself. And 1.2 were done by Cotto and Canelo. I know the truth hurts. How many did Money May draw world wide! ZEROOOO!

When Da Manny fights, he draws PPV buyouts in 100-plus countries. He draws the more world-wide PPV buyouts, since Michael Tyson and GOAT Muhammad Ali. Do your research, SCLA Ali. Quick being so fast on the gun with your juvenile "Every day is Christmas for Money May's pay and play." He is a man of straw, not syet can he draw. Holla!

ali says:

Triple O.G he did over a mil with the Victor the obituary liar Ortiz. I know he's latin but nobody knew who he was prior to there fight. Now if Pac can't do better numbers then that with Bradley then u just have to admitt Mayweather a bigger draw. Damn don't sound so bitter about it Pac ain't about to break u off any of the money any neither is Money May. Deuces!!!!

I agree, I hate the term "Pactard."

50/50 split or if you want to put balls on the table, winner take ALL. They are both rich men and if they truly believe in themselves then why not?

ali says:

Yeah Pactards is retarded lol

Radam G says:

Once again, Money May is not a BIGGER draw than PacMan anywhere in the world. Da Manny even outdraws Money May on the U.S. mainland. That is a fact, JACK! And most people don't know JACK! Jack Johnson, Jack Dempsey, Black Jack, Jack and the Beanstork, Jack and Jill, Hijack, Sugar Pops Jack, My puppy dog Jack, Jack Daniels, Jack The Ripper or one-eyed Jack. Hehehe!

Come on, SCLA Ali! Get on the racist-though-control medication "Propranolol." It will help you with that strong Lil' Floydeligion and down-wif-da ghettoligion that is fudging you up. "Can we all get alone?" Hehehehe!

You are straight up a Floydeligious fool, and you are darn strong gehettolious, and it is all cool. And I ain't mad at cha! You make people see why we need borderlines for mental and physical behaviors. Besides, Money May would flush you down a toilet stool, while calling you one big-arse fool. Holla!

brownsugar says:

great turnout..... like or leave it... Money May is still the PPV KING. althought you have to get the right fights to get the right numbers. tapping the Hispanic community was just as Savvy as drawing the Britts fans and casual believers to watch Hatton. Mayweather does his homework first and signs the contract later.

brownsugar says:

If the matches weren't Kosher... nobody would watch.
