even career-wise, Pac has sold more PPV than Floyd.

Floyd has a higher average, but he also fights alot less. If Floyd fought more, his average would drop. If Pac fought less, his average would increase. When a product is more rare, people are more willing to shell out $$ to buy it.

As for Floyd making 40M$ against Mosley, it doesn't add up. He made about 27M tops.

Mayweather is the PPV King simply because more people will pay to watch him!

Manny probably gets more people watching his fights especially when you consider how big he is in the phillipines. But that doesnt contribute to the numbers.

People trying to use all kinds of reasoning to say that less = more? LOL Manny doesnt generate as many PPV's Floyd, just accept it!

There's no issue he is a great fighter, but so was Prime Roy Jones Jr and look at his figures it isnt necessarily your skill or personality that makes you a PPV star!

how can you say less = more? Pacquiao has more PPV sales in 2010, more PPV sales in 2009, more PPV sales in 2008, and more PPV sales over his entire career. More = more. Pac has more PPV sales than FLoyd.

Who has the highest PPV numbers for one fight? - Floyd

Better number vs common opponent? vs Oscar - Floyd

Better number vs common opponent? Vs Hatton - Floyd (UK figures by a landslide)

Better number vs common opponent vs Marquez - Floyd (Even though UFC was on the same night and Dana thought they would kick his ass)

On Average who has the better numbers - Floyd!

The ONLY thing Pacman has got over Floyd is he fights more often and so cumalative he has a bigger number.

Floyd is the bigger PPV attraction it is simple try and explain it anyway way you like the FACTS speak for themselves!

Fact is that Pac and Floyd fought those guys under very different circumstances.

Bottom line is that Pac has more PPV sales than Floyd. You can find excuses for that all you want. I could say taht the reason Floyd does more per fight is because he fights less often. If a product is more rare, people are more willing to spend their $$ on it.

What matters is the bottom line. Overall, who generated more money? Pac or Floyd.. answer is Pac.

floyd has fought bigger names at the time that he fought them- and pac has fought more and greater opposition- with lesser names.

****- who cares- in the end- none of this will help us get closer to determining whos the bigger fighter- and making them actually fight. all this is mental masturbation- when are we going to ****ing see them fight?!!
