Default Its a Fantasy!!!

Why not try this? What if everyone would ignore their ego's and make a double main event ppv? What if Hatton and Mayweahter were on the card as Cotto and Mosley? How well would that PPV do? Would it rival Mayweather vs DLH? I don't think so but I think it would do well. What are your thoughts?

Not enough money to go around. Four main event fighters, only the money for two.

Not true! All you have to do is put on a pathetic undercard

I could see it doing 1.5 million...now add a DLH fight and it would break 2.1 million.

A lot of undercards are pathetic. Bottom line prices would have to jacked up a lot. You're talking about one lot of revenue full stop.

I'd pay 10 bucks for Mayweather-Hatton and 40 bucks for Cotto-Mosley.

If this went for 55 bucks I think it would do 850,000 buys

Well the bottom line is THIS ppv may not outsell De la hoya Mayweather but it being a super supercard would help boxing immensely and help sell future ppvs better. Especially those featuring these four fighters. But I will be pretty dissapointed if Cotto Mosely doesn't push 500k buys. To most of the fans I talk to this is going to be the FOTY.

It should, but I guess it doesn't. That would be one hell of a card though.
