Do you have a link for this? It's cool if you don't, but thanks for the info. Always good to know about these things. Kinda new to the sport so trying to read and watch and learn as much as possible, hence the question.

RICKY HATTON is in line for a whopping 20MILLION pay day following his epic fight with Floyd Mayweather.

The Hitman was KO'd in the 10th round of their WBC welterweight title bout.

But the first defeat of his 44-fight career will be cushioned as the cash generated by the Las Vegas showdown is reaching mind-boggling proportions after it shattered Sky's pay-per-view record.

Hatton, 29, was already in line to pocket a career-high purse of 4m.

Sky are refusing to comment but the previous record of 750,000 sales, set when Lennox Lewis beat Mike Tyson in June 2002, has been beaten by about 150,000.

Hatton's team shrewdly negotiated a package with Sky that he would get a percentage of every PPV buy above 350,000.

Early estimates indicate the final figure will be at least 2 times greater than that - around 900,000 - making Hatton one of the best-paid boxers of all time.

Hatton's dad, Ray, is also his manager and insisted on keeping the UK TV rights.

And that has turned out to be one of the best bits of business the Manchester fighter has ever done - and now means he has hit the very-big time.

The figures for money generated by the clash are being revised 'up' every day and the final total is now heading towards the dizzying 70m mark.

American broadcasters HBO are so delighted with the 'Hatton factor' they have already told Hatton snr they want to sit down at the earliest possible date to discuss his son's next fight.

Pay-per-view figures in the United States are expected to top 1.5m sales, which will bring in 41.25m.

Tickets to watch the fight live at Vegas' 16,000-capacity MGM Garden Arena were snapped up within 30 minutes of going on sale and had cash tills ringing to the tune of another 5m.

On the black market, ringside seats were being offered for a staggering 8,000, while 'ordinary' seats were fetching 750.

Other casino-hotels along the Las Vegas strip screened the fight on CCTV and EVERY one of the 21,000 tickets were bought by punters.

Fanatical Manchester City fan Hatton is now a huge box office attraction all over the world.

In China alone an estimated 50 MILLION people tuned in to watch the fight.

The official number was over 1 mil, Mayweather really ****ed up because at the time the exchange rate was $2-1. So Hatton made around $40 million from that fight.

No it isn't Hatton would have got a lower percentage from US sales but got to keep the UK rights, Hatton fights didn't sell big at all before the Mayweather fight.

Thanks for the link. That seems like a bad business decision on Floyd's behalf then, and a very good one for Hatton. So I guess to answer the question in the opening post, I would think Mayweather made more in the De La Hoya fight.

LOL, you act like it was Mayweather negotiating those terms, and not Ellerbe or Haymon or whoever.

No, I just said Floyd, and by that I obviously meant his team. When I say Hatton, I'm not saying Hatton is sat in there negotiating all of his own terms. They have people to do it for them, but I'm not going to look it up and specifically type who it is.

No wonder floyd wants to fight a hatton again. He liked what he saw from the UK buys and wants to capitalised on it this time around.
