Floyd "Money" Mayweather's set to earn the biggest payday of his entire undefeated career, when he fights wunderkind Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
It's estimated that Floyd will earn about 90 million USD for this bout.
This math data has been released by Forbes magazine. It says the probable 1.5 million PPV’s will mean generate 105 million USD of which 50 will go under contract to Mayweather.
Besides the PPV income, the 8 time world champion who's considered the best p4p in the world, has a guarantee 40 million USD for the fight just for stepping into the ring.

If the suckers pay him....they pay him.

Prediction...he will win this fight!

PBF never takes a fight where he is in danger of losing.

Mayweather hasn't challenged himself in a long long time.

Not worth the possible $75 predicted for PPV.

I don't understand how that's possible. Boxing PPVs cost $69.99. Multiply by 1.5M gives you $104,985,000. If the PPV providers get roughly half the gross off the top, that leaves $52,492,500. There's still the live gate, but that wouldn't account for anything close to the difference.

Makes you wonder what he would have gotten had he taken the Manny fight when it was the biggest fight ever to be made.

 

100 plus easy, thats a 3 mill buy PPV had they made it when they could have.

If you are the best in the entire world at something, and millions of people pay $50-$75 to see you do your job, why dont you deserve that money?

Theres some fantastic candid pov vids fighthype uploaded to dailymotion a few years back. I post them here every now and again. Anyways... Floyd keeps all the money from concessions tshirts food etc... He also pays his opponent usually. Al Haymond is a genius. Thats why floyd and 50 broke up. 50 tried to get in between floyd and haymond. Phone Post

This fight will happen next year. Manny is desperate for cash. Floyd needs to keep putting up huge numbers.

I also see a floyd canelo 2 happening no matter who wins. Phone Post
