I think after May 4th he will be headlining his own PPV and he'll only be 23 years old which will put him on pace to headline his first PPV at the same age Oscar did against Ruelas.
1. Rafael Ruelas (5/95) 330,000 buys = $9.9 million
2. Genaro Hernandez (9/95) 220,000 buys = $6.6 million
3. Miguel Angel Gonzalez (1/97) 345,000 buys = $12.1 million
De La Hoya's first 3 PPV's. Let's see if Canelo can do those type of numbers or better in his first PPV's.
