Pac/Floyd can fight bums and still be on PPV. Why not the so called 3rd biggest draw in boxing? According to his fanatics, he has sooo much star power he can sell anything on PPV. I don't get it.


Here it comes.......I'm a hater. Yet I have said this.

He isn't.

The Klitschko's have more worldwide drawing power than him.

Possibly even David Haye too.

He is a big draw though.

His fans would disagree with you. Selling around 7k vs Mayorga in Vegas outdoes anything outside of Floyd/Pac.

In the North American market, he is the third biggest draw.

Doesn't mean he shouldn't fight on regular HBO though. I'm very glad that he is.

Because Cotto's minimum isn't huge like those other guys so his fights can be on normal HBO. Make no mistake, if Pacquiao's fight wasnt the week after, this fight would be on PPV.

Cotto's salary is more flexible, so he can go on normal HBO. Cotto is a big draw though. He might not be a star, but he's the third biggest draw in the US. Maybe fourth now with Chavez, but we'll see how Martinez-Chavez does.

Cotto maybe around the 3rd/4th spot in the US, but not the world.
