That's a little better. I hope he takes it so Ricky can shatter some ribs but I think they will have to go even higher to get Floyd across the pond.

What did you think Floyds gonna make for a fight like this? For the DLH fight is received $8 million dollars base, making this is biggest payday.

HE FOUGHT OSCAR DE LA HOYA OF COURSE HE MADE THAT MUCH, only becase it was a fight with Oscar! DLH is the one that pulls the numbers not floyd, so dont get it twisted!

Hatton fan seem to forget Arum can match that offer if not better if Margarito is successful in his fight with williams not to mention if he agree to fight Cotto in NY and what about shane? all these guy are ahead of Hatton respectfully except maybe Margarito but if he beat William I think that number would move from 8 to much more.

If this fight happens, especially @ Wembley stadium, I expect Floyd and Ricky will both get $15mil. This will generate a truckload of money.

When you plug floyd name with Shane ,or Cotto and maybe even Margartio floyd has a choice that are brighter then Hatton.

Forget about the last fight it was against ODL, why can't some people understand that?

Nope wrong again, this would be the easier fight for Floyd cause all the Welters are stronger, and Hatton would just be part of the Cherry picking machine that Mayweather has become!

Nice to see you have matured
Mayweather is a much bigger PPV draw than Hatton dumbass

nope your wrong even floyd most strongest haters would say floyd has unfinished business at 147 and if you think Hatton is about Shane or Cotto or ever Margarito your Crazy ..
All 3 would be consider a bigger threat to Floyd then hatton and Floyd base pay for Oscar was 15 mill that was published on all respected boxing sights.

bottom line he does not need hatton and he has other choices and thats real .

Floyd will never make over $20 million again. He'll be lucky to make more than $15 million. Replace DLH with Margarito, and that wouldn't have been a major fight in financial terms. Mayweather just isn't a draw.

In terms of risk reward, $10-12 million is very worthwhile for Mayweather. Anyway, at this stage, he should be thinking about legacy rather than finances.

I don't think that Mayweather will go to England and fight Ricky.

I think the money issue is ridiculous. Both guys are already rich and any fighter who cared about legacy would fight just as hard for 10 million as they would for 25 million. It's stupid. Anyway I'm American and I'll be rooting for Hatton but betting on Mayweather.
