Many on the other side, who ran away from Boxing because they didn't grow up with it or prefer the glorified wrestling matches that is MMA, would like to believe that Boxing is a dead sport.

1 million buys. That's a great number of fans.

Indeed, Floyd took PPV, Marquez took the live event with his fans.

It was Marquez's Mexican fans who generated that many PPV buys.

It was Floyd Mayweather...

Marquez fans attended the live event more than Floyd fans though.

This fight was a good warm up for Pac versus Maywheter. That will be the big ticket item of the year.

If Floyd can break 1 million fighting Marquez, just imagine what the numbers are going to look like against Pac

Mayweather VS Pacquiao would be an awesome thing for the sport of Boxing, too bad Floyd's ego is too big to make it work. Those two will never fight.

What do you all think will be the PPV Numbers for Juan Manuel Lopez? I'm thinking 150,000-250,000...nowhere near the numbers because Lopez's opponent is a joke for a PPV event, I certainly wouldn't pay $50 for it. The undercard seems awesome though.
