Look at the De La Hoya v Mayweather fight, it generated $120 million. From that 52 mil was paid to Oscar and 25 mil payed to Floyd.
77 million of the 120 million revenue went towards the fighters.
Using that as a foundation the fight with with Mayweather and Pacquiao would have to generate upwards of 250 million.
This is 2012 and people have lost interest in this fight. It's still the biggest fight to be made but not as big as it should've been years ago.
