Why did you choose the FMJ-Hatton/Pac-Hatton numbers to make your comparison? Why didnt you use the FMJ-DLH/Pac-DLH numbers to make the analogy?
Using your logic...it proves the exact opposite. Pac can make more money fighting Floyd than anyone else. The fight is the fight more fans want to see and for that reason 35% is bullshit. Maybe against Cotto or even Mosley but against Floyd its a bigger fight. It's P4P...there would be so much more hype surrounding the fight. If were Floyd I would go 50-50 or **** it. Arum can fight Cotto or Mosley and 70% and that still be less than 50% fighting Floyd...
