    Anyone know anything about the purse for this fight?

    Does Ortiz get a cut of the PPV #'s or anything?

    That's what inspired me to ask.

    I'm curious what "good money" is..... is it like, 10 times what Ortiz has ever made before?

    lol if this fight generates over 1 million buys, there would be over $40 million in the pot for the fighters

    Mayweather will be taking home something in the region of $35-40 mill

    floyd will be making somewhere in the region of 30- 40 million judging on how well the ppv will do.

    I think ortiz will end up with around 5 million.

    common trends in boxing,

    de la hoya v hopkins did a million buys and $40 million was split (30+10)

    Holyfield v Tyson rematch did 2 million homes and ( $70 million split between the fighters)
    (so about $35.. per million)

    De la hoya v Mayweather 2.44 million homes ( $80-85 million split between
    the fighters

    you get the general assumption around $35-40 million is in the pot per million homes for the fighters but depends on other things sponsors, live gate revenue etc as well.


    If Mayweather v Pacquiao did 4 million homes, I truely believe both fighters would walk away with $80 million+ each

    Well, considering Ortiz got around $50,000 for his Peterson fight, against Mayweather he'd be making more than 10 times of that. Not sure what he made in the Berto fight, though.
