Just like any other profession, if someone is paying it they are making money off of it. Free market.Fight time totals, win or lose:
Mayweather will earn 180 million tonight.
Pac-man will make 120 million tonight
You know damn well the promoters want 3 fights. I expect Manny to win tonight only for the reason that if FM wins, there's no reason for a rematch. However, if he loses, it sets up rd 2 which he'll win, setting up the winner takes all rd 3. Gotta love a fixed sport!
...And tonight's earnings figures are absurd!
My view has been identical. "Man I'm going to make over 100 million because of the people that are going to pay ridiculous prices to see me on tv. I'm like a kardachian."I'm pulling for Pacquaio just because Mayweather is a jackass.
Other than that I could care less. I remember when the big fights were on ABC's Wide World of Sports. My Dad and I used to watch all the greats when I was a kid. Now it is all about the money. I haven't seen a boxing match in years because they mostly tend to be pay per view. I ain't payin'.
