Everyone else is underpaid.

I don't like the idea that Floyd Mayweather, Mike Tyson, De La Hoya can make more in one fight than a doctor or scientist will make in his entire life. Hell, he might be on similar pay to the most high-demand doctor in the world (I'm not sure).

I also don't like that some quality fighters have to have jobs on the side when they put in a lot of hard work and take a lot of punishment. Especially in the lower weights.

But what can you do?
Don't purchase the PPV
