I don't want to watch commercials in between rounds and ads popping up non stop during the fight. I'll pay the $60-$70 for a better viewing experience poor/cheap bastards will stream it anyway so it really doesn't matter. Besides I like having family/friends over and watching the fights in a big group if it's on free TV that won't happen.

Besides the fighters make money off the PPV buys, unless they are guaranteed a substantially purse this just won't happen. I saw an interview with Lampley somewhere and he said boxing is meant for PPV for these exact reasons and I agree. Sure I can do without the 20+ minute intro/anthem/saying 500 names that don't matter before the fight starts but I can deal with that.

If GBP & CBS put the numbers together and offered Cotto/Canelo a big enough purse that PPV buys wouldn't crack the amount they were getting paid, I can see it happening. CBS could promote the hell out of the fight through the "Fight Camp 360" re-brand in "All Access" plus the heavy advertisement on CBS/SEC and CBS/NFL would certainly get advertisers to flock to the event, and the biggest move of all would be to hold the match before the main event of Chavez Jr./Martinez.

Hmmm why would people stream it if it's on terrestrial tv?

And don't you think it'd be better for the sport to get the exposure from network tv like it used to be? Don't you think it sucks that most people don't know who the fuck Mayweather and Pacquiao are?

Surely they would make more on their next fight if they had this one PPV. It could attract many new fans who would pay for a fight

There are enuff idiots that would pay PPV so it won't be on CBS. You know how ridiculous PPVs are? You paid for cable and you are paying even more to see one fight.

It would do very well but there's no way a network would fork over enough money to bring that to their network. PPV just brings in too much. Right now Cotto V Canelo would probably do 500,000 buys.

Canelo vs a can alone would do more than 10 million viewers.
Canelo's main market don't even have HBO.

And Cotto? If he fought on free TV the entire population of puerto rico would tune in and then some. More than 30 million for the two of them.

Eh, most people know who Mayweather and Pac are. They are easily among the biggest athletes on the planet today. It just gets into shady territory when you start talking about the Frochs and the Wards of the world.

The names people are guaranteed to know in the US are Mayweather, Pac, Cotto, Margarito. Cotto is a draw on his own but those two have been around the board enough times for people to recognise their names by now. Mosley and JMM would also have to be well known by now given the level of marketing they've been through. Canelo I understand is also a recognisable name purely due to being on the Mayweather under cards. Hell they even know Bradley now for better or worse. So really this "people only know one or two boxers" outlook isn't as bleak as people make out.

To top that off Vitali and Wlad do their rounds on major American talk shows and their fights generate a good bit of interest when HBO shows them in the US. Wlad vs Haye was the most googled US search term for a few days after the fight. Adamek vs Vitali was also trending well for their fight. Likewise, I'd bet Chisora vs Haye would do well if HBO would or anyone else would show it.
