GBP can easily resolve this. Get Canelo-Trout on its own card. The winner fights Floyd.
Wouldn't he get the same amount of money as a co main as he would if he was headlining his own FREE event on Showtime? Canelo is NOT a PPV fighter (yet) and neither is Trout so most likely that fight on PPV would be a BUST.
I mean, Martinez-Chavez was probably THE most anticipated fight of 2012 and it did quite well but relative low (still exceeded some expectations) compared to people like Mayweather and Pacquiao. How do you think Canelo-Trout on PPV would look?
