Much of Ghost's purse that fight was because of Berto. And Ghost sure as **** ain't making $2.5 million versus any other fighter, period. Unless manny fights (and loses) to him, seeing how he pays no-fan fighters $5 mill a fight.

4$ Million is mostly greed on Ghost's side. Ghost getting 2.5$ mill + the chance for instant legacy / instant fame, which would all translate into lots of big paydays.

Yet he's bitching about 1.5$ million...

I guess if people bought him fighting Marquez coming up from lightweight they'll buy anything.

Mayweather is a smart man he knows better then to try and pursue that beast.

Why are you asking if Matthysse has fought at 154?

Matthysse would still be bigger on fight night.

It just seems odd to me that fighting Floyd would yield the same amount as he would fighting Berto twice. It's just 1.5 more than what he made against Berto in one fight, on a PPV that will likely bring in 40-50 million dollars. The opportunity is great and all, but Bradley wasn't much more of an attraction (if at all) and he got a flat 5 against Manny.

Let's hope Martinez impresses against Murray. Who would you be rooting for?

I knew he'd backtrack. It's like all the other fools saying "Floyd is going to duck so and so"

Then Floyd signs to fight them and they all change their tune and pick Floyd to win
