UK population: 60M - PPV buys: over 1M

If you do the math it's obvious to see who the "draw" was. And there's hardly any evidence to suggest the Floyd is the new "face of boxing" in the USA when he fights a P4P guy and didn't bring more than 500K buys himself - while ODLH can fight a Downes kid in a crack alley and do over a million buys. I don't think anybody would disagree with the notion that nearly 100% of all the UK subscribers were Hatton fans, and a good portion of the US ones as well (at least 25%). Numbers don't lie - Floyd's not the new face of boxing, he was MADE by his hand picked opponents over the past couple years, starting with Gatti.

Sorry for the rant, just couldn't help myself.
what were hatton's PPV numbers prior to fighting Floyd?

What would Mayweather's PPV numbers in England in Britain if he fought Witter or Rees?

Hatton was the reason their was such a high buy rate. Most people din't know Mayweather, they just knew his marketing description.

Nar , it is Hatton that was the draw , i dont like Hatton 1 bit , but Floyd did struggle for super-stardom a lot in his career earlier on . I dont mean to take anything away from his achievements , Floyd is great . But he was never the one that attracted the huge numbers . He may do now , but that's because whenever he fights , they can promote it as the undisputed fighter in the world p4p. They couldnt do that a few years ago before B-hop and Jones got beat. DLH was the draw , and then Hatton was after that

The PPV in England was also significantly cheaper. Not to mention, Brits are more supportive in general of Boxing. That is more of a reflection on the fans than on Mayweather not being a draw. He obviously is to some extent.

even the all-time ppv king in oscar needs a reasonably big name (per boxing standards) to do really good ppv #s.
