Default Is Hatton bigger draw than Mayweather?

DLH wants fight him, Casamayor wants fight him, Malignaggi wants fight him, Witter wants fight him
and even Floyd himself wants come back from deep retirement to fight him in England.

I really have no idea, Floyd obviously has a larger following here in the U.S. while Hatton has his own in England.

I do know this, Floyds fans (and Floyd himself) have an over inflated sense of drawing power thanks to Oscar.

Hatton in UK
PBF in US
It comes down to where the most money can be made and that's in the US hands down.

Oscar is not going after legacy itself, he is going after the money first.
So the way DLH is not giving Mayweather a second shot speak for itself,
Mayweather isn't draw anymore, Hatton is a hot peanut right now

Why though? Not that your wrong, I really dont know the economics of the situation. Seems that the live gate could be staggeringly hight in England.

Objectively speaking, you cant really say that. Oscar is going to bring in the money either way, so I could counter argue that why not do it against Hatton, which DLH has the style and skills to beat.

Casino money and PPV money will be more than live gate and PPV money in UK.

Default Re: Is Hatton bigger draw than Mayweather?

everybody can call him out nowadays. guys like malignaggi shouldn't stand a chance, but they're not in danger anyway, hatton has too many candidates, so they just talk some **** for attention.
who should really want to fight hatton? his awkward brawling/clinching style doesn't guarantee a clean and attractive fight, his fanatic supporters won't let you breathe (and they don't care where it takes place), and put together these two factors also mean gift decisions, especially in britain.

Hatton is the bigger DRAW hands down..
How many PPV have Ricky done? Ricky can fill a soccer stadium full of soccer fans not boxing fans in UK. But Floyd has a bigger following due to fans and people like you who want to see him lose. Ricky just has soccer fans who want to travel and drink beer.

I think they may go to agreement as follow:

Live statium money + PPV in Enagland + PPV in US, why not?
So Floyd get money from PPV in US and Hatton from PPV in England and the stadium.

Well then it comes down to who needs the other one more and who the man is and that cleary is PBF. The fight should be in Vegas.

First of all you're pulling those numbers completely out of your ass, Hatton has made more than $2.5 million before. Next, Hatton's payday against Castillo doesn't take into account the money he made from British TV money and other sources. He's rumored to have made around $10 million for that fight all told

That's the the thing people on ESB don't seem to get a lot of the time. A popular European fighter like Hatton, Lewis, Klitschkos, whoever else going to the US is going to make a lot of money from international TV money that wouldn't be there otherwise. They bring in sources of income that aren't present in fights between two Americans
