Sad thing is this probably makes you a top 10 draw in the US. There's Mayweather, Pacquiao, Cotto, Alvarez, Chavez, JMM. Who else does over 400k gates?

Absolutely, but Khan wasn't going to fight that close to his opponents hometown, considering what happened in DC.

Golden Boy seems hell bent of making Khan fight in Vegas, instead of putting him in markets where he could draw (NYC, AC, etc...). Basically, if Floyd or Pac isn't involved, it's not going to be a big ticket seller in Sin City.

Promos (For the Cotto-Mayorga fight, the MGM Grand was offering a package where if you booked a room at the MGM, 2 tickets to the fight came with it), high rollers that drop big coin in casinos, etc...

US in general it's thriving everywhere else. The sport has taken a backseat to other sports.
