PPV numbers are different than selling out an arena. Many Mexican fighters can sell out an arena, it's the PPV numbers that will dictate who the promoters will choose.
As big as Floyd is, the numbers he would have done vs Pac if that fight ever happened, would have been historic and you can't attribute that to just one fighter.
My point is that when fans talk nonsense about who sold more and so on, they are just talking nonsense because at the end of the day, you need two popular fighters to make a big time PPV. Floyd is not going to do huge numbers fighting Guerrero. He will do good numbers but not Oscar or Pac numbers and where he is in boxing, that's all he wants to do.
