This wouldn't be enough to get Floyd to fight in his own backyard. I hope this isn't a serious offer.

Bull**** offer from Hatton
If the fights as easy as the loudmouth is saying it is....................Well **** me its an easy 9mill..............
Lets see Floyd over here in front of the most vocal & intimidating fans in the world coupled with the fact he's underestimating Hatton big time.........That would have the makings of a very interesting fight indeed.....

Because Hatton would make twice that amount which is bull****

Floyd can make $9m fighting Baldomir again in Vegas, why bother going to England for the same money?

It does include the US PPV - where do you think the $9m would come from other than the PPV? He may get bonuses if it sells over 500k, but not much

Floyd made 7,5 milion fighting baldomir. and 20 milion fighting floyd.

This fight should be in the states. way more money, it will do big PPV numbers if they market this right ( 24/7 ).

800 k? I think in america floyd could get 20 and hatton 10. that looks fair to me.

In England, if ****** promotes it's probably 10 for floyd and 10 for hatton

Bull **** offer.

People seem to be ignoring that there is gate money. If it is a 5million purse for Mayweather but with rights to some of the gate money and PPV money, he will get a lot more.

They could sell out the City of Manchester stadium EASILY and that is a seated capacity of 48,000. Take into account the amount of the pitch area that can house people sat and standing....
We are looking at over 50,000 people.

If he did it at Wembley then it would be 90,000 fans, and it would sell out.

that last option sounds like it would be an amazing experience and I for one think floyd should take the offer and make some quick cash seeing as how he thinks he's whooping hatton's ass all around the world.

I guess it depends whether that's $10m gauranteed, with PPV and gate %'s on top of that (very good offer) or $10m and no more (not good enough).

Nice to see both camps actually discussing the fight though, makes me think there's at least a chance it will happen.

The thing is Mayweather will probably win that one on points - does he
fancy coming all this way for a judges decision? Plus, has he seen Minter-Hagler

Youre all forgetting its a primary offer for **** sake! Nobody is going to jump in with say, $15,000,000 straight off, do any of you know how business works! At least there is an offer on the table, things can only get better from there!

Hatton isn't De la Hoya and neither is Floyd. Hatton's the draw too. In other words, this fight isn't going to make as much as the De La Hoya fight but the tickets will be sold because of Hatton so something approaching a 50/50 split seems fair.

There's no way any fight for Floyd is going to match his last pay day so he's going to have to accept that $10 million is a good basic deal if PPV and gate receipts are added on top of that. Floyd's got to accept that he's never again going to get De La Hoya kinds of money so has to lower his expectations if he wants fights to be made.
