It will be a big seller but not nearly as big as Mayweather vs. Cotto. Mayweather is the biggest money maker and Cotto is the 3rd biggest. Martinez is not that popular.

I agree with 4corners. I don't think it's going to do over 350k. Plus Canelo fighting on non-PPV Showtime at the same time (regardless of the opponent) will take away many potential buyers.

This fight would be considered a success if it did Pac Clottey numbers. But to outsell the #1 P4P best fighter in the world, Floyd Mayweather? lol, Pac can't even do that and he's the second best at everything in boxing!

4corners is making a great point, it seems a lot of people have started to think that 700k+ buys are easy to come by because of Manny Pacquiao's & Floyd Mayweathers amazing numbers they put up routinely.
If Cotto & Margarito did around 600k buys, which is a MASSIVE success, there is no way, JCC Jr. & Martinez does close to that, no matter how much better the match up is.
If this fight sells 300k units (which is not a given) that will be a great number that everyone will make a LOT of money on.
Do the math: $49.95 ppv(my estimated price)x 300k buys= $14,985,000. Say the distributers take 45% of the profits(directv etc). That gives the promoters around $8,241,750 to pay the fighters, promoters, etc.
Add gate in, add international tv, and it would make these fighters huge money.
