Oscar De La Hoya
With the announcement of Mayweather Jr. vs. Pacquiao is finally going to happen, many thought how much this fight will generate. Answer: A CRAP LOAD!! It will shatter all financial records in any boxing match in history. With the help of CBS and Showtime, Mayweather could earn up $120 million for 12 rounds, if that, of boxing, while Pacquiao will make around $80 million. Boxing depends so much on PPV sales and will continue to do so, but this time it’ll be at a premium price come May 5. Only if Muhammad Ali or Mike Tyson were fighting now days, they could probably beat out Mayweather records. Here are Boxing’s richest fights in history:
