Casual fans remember Floyd holding back and lightly teeing off on Marquez. Casual fans remember Marquez being knocked with a simple left. And then watching Floyd easily outbox him for 12 rounds.
Great rematch for hardcore fans.
Shitty rematch for casual fans. It won't sell.
It will sell. Most casual fans don't remember what happened back in 2009. They usually only remember a fighter for what they did in their last bout. JMM just knocked Pacquiao the fuck out, most casual fans want to see him knock Mayweather out as well, and therefore, they will pay for it. And pay hefty
If Pac/JMM 4 sold 1.2 million PPVS after PAC/JMM 3, Floyd/JMM will sell very well.
If you put on a decent undercard, it will do just as well as Cotto/May, possibly even more.
Some hardcore fans may find it a huge turnoff since May already shut him out back in 2009, but most other fans (Some hardcore, and almost all casual ones) want to see JMM knock Floyd's head off.
