Default Has Floyd Ever Sold 400,000 PPV Buys Outside of The Oscar Fight?

Real question, because Im not sure he has. His fights with Baldomir, Zab, and Gatti sold less I believe.

No, but has Mosley sold 400k buys before he fought Oscar? Has he even had a PPV? I guarantee you Hatton/Mayweather will do over 400k buys as well.

And what PPV numbers have Gatti done in the past to back this claim up?

The only reason Floyd sells is to see if the cunt gets beat, he has the smallest fanbase of any other prime p4p fighter ever, its a combination of him being as boring as humanly possibly to watch in the ring and him being a classless charisma lacking shit out of the ring. I pray Hatton dethrones this cunt, then there would be 0 demand for him.

But Im not really talking about Oscar.

Im talking about the marketability of Cotto, which has obviously been understated.

In his first fight with an elite fighter he sold more PPV buys than Floyd ever did before fighting Oscar.

Quite the reversal from what Floyd and some of what his fans have been saying here for the last week, that a Floyd vs Cotto fight would not sell.

Definitely, but I think the 24/7 without question will help those figures, besides everyone in the UK will want to see this fight.

It will definately sell more now, but the same will happen to Floyd as happened to Shane, after fights with Oscar their names gotten bigger. Cotto is huge with Ricans but he was not well known outside of his Rican fan base. This Mosley fight changed that a bit.

**** no it wont, no one wants to see Oscar completely gas after 8 rounds while Floyd pot shots his way to another UD.
