40 Million? That's hard to believe in this day and age.

Vicky Fatton is gonna make a shitload more, too. Think of the amount of pies he can afford now! I estimate he could buy around 30 million pies or so. Possibly more. If he buys in bulk he should get a good discount. Not bad.

Seriously, with another few fights and all the other stuff that goes along with it, this guy is gonna be worth ridiculous amounts over the next few years.

What was Tyson's biggest payday?

I don't think he made anywhere near 40 million.

Not sure, but I heard he ended up broke because he spent all his money on... pigeons!

Awesome, Mike. Just awesome.

over 3million buys is looking very plausible.

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.
Wait, are they saying that this fight did over 2 million worldwide?

While we can cry about who made how much, the important thing here is to note that Boxing is finally starting to come back into the casual conversation amongst non followers. If 2008 is anything like 2007, the sport will be back on top!
