I'm not sure if it did 900,000. It said in the paper before the fight that they expected 400,000.

Hatton making more then floyd is laughable..Floyd is getting a guaranteed 15 and hatton 8 and I bet floyd gets a bigger portion of the PPVs..the US prob did 900k

Boxing is beautiful. Good for Hatton, and good for Mayweather.

I suspect the fight did over 2.5 mill. floyd got 11 million pounds ricky 5 million pounds after the exchange rates floyd has us 22 million ricky 10 million us.

now that is guaranteed money, with ppvs added in tack on an extra 20 million for floyd and 10 million for ricky.

this fight was a blockbuster in europe and with the us dollar in the dumps expect a rematch next year in wembley. you can already hear the rumblings

If Ricky somehow earned a higher percentage of the UK pay-per-view buys - then he may very well come out earning more than Mayweather. Otherwise, it seems that Mayweather would receive the larger percentage of it all regardless of the dismal US exchange rate.

Wow, if that 40 million figure is correct, that's gotta the biggest single-fight payday ever. Pretty impressive.

Loser Hatton is a £20m winner

By PAT SHEEHAN
Published: 11 Dec 2007


RICKY HATTON is in line for a whopping £20MILLION pay day following his epic fight with Floyd Mayweather.

The Hitman was KO’d in the 10th round of their WBC welterweight title bout.

But the first defeat of his 44-fight career will be cushioned as the cash generated by the Las Vegas showdown is reaching mind-boggling proportions after it shattered Sky’s pay-per-view record.

Hatton, 29, was already in line to pocket a career-high purse of £4m.

Sky are refusing to comment but the previous record of 750,000 sales, set when Lennox Lewis beat Mike Tyson in June 2002, has been beaten by about 150,000.

Hatton’s team shrewdly negotiated a package with Sky that he would get a percentage of every PPV buy above 350,000.

Early estimates indicate the final figure will be at least 2½ times greater than that — around 900,000 — making Hatton one of the best-paid boxers of all time.

Hatton’s dad, Ray, is also his manager and insisted on keeping the UK TV rights.

And that has turned out to be one of the best bits of business the Manchester fighter has ever done — and now means he has hit the very-big time.

The figures for money generated by the clash are being revised ‘up’ every day and the final total is now heading towards the dizzying £70m mark.

American broadcasters HBO are so delighted with the ‘Hatton factor’ they have already told Hatton snr they want to sit down at the earliest possible date to discuss his son’s next fight.

Pay-per-view figures in the United States are expected to top 1.5m sales, which will bring in £41.25m.

Tickets to watch the fight live at Vegas’ 16,000-capacity MGM Garden Arena were snapped up within 30 minutes of going on sale and had cash tills ringing to the tune of another £5m.

On the black market, ringside seats were being offered for a staggering £8,000, while ‘ordinary’ seats were fetching £750.

Other casino-hotels along the Las Vegas strip screened the fight on CCTV and EVERY one of the 21,000 tickets were bought by punters.

Fanatical Manchester City fan Hatton is now a huge box office attraction all over the world.

In China alone an estimated 50 MILLION people tuned in to watch the fight.

Probably not, but how much is enough? I wouldn't even bother counting after 20 mil. If you STILL want more after that, you're just a greedy bastard!

The guy deserves it, though. He is one of the few true attractions in the sport that can draw a crowd.

this fight will gross more than floyd vs hoya. floyd and ricky had a 60/40 split on the uk ppvs and a 70/30 split on the us ppvs. 50million chinese tuning in tells you how big this fight was

over 3million buys is looking very plausible.
