Two former featherweights will be the top PPV stars - Never would have thought at that time that the little guys could actually HEADLINE a PPV, let alone become the TOP PPV stars.
The RJJ thing wouldn't surprise me at all - I would do the math and after realizing that he would be in his 40s in 2012, it wouldn't surprise me at all.

you do realize Mayweather cheats in other ways, retire when the landscape got dangerous came back to an easy fight making a lighweight jump up two weight classes just to cheat on the scales by 2 pounds and he didnt even try to make weight and fight night he injects Xylocaine into his fights so that he can punch harder and last the full 12 rounds. Giving all this the best he did against Marquez was score a flash knock down.

I will tell the boxing fans Floyd will be scared to death and will never fight the former minimumweight Pacquaio. Then after his 40 fights, all of the sudden he will make his own Olympic fake test only to be caught later on by his own test on 3 occasions.

Heavyweight Title fights are now shown on EPIXX

This for me, Heavys were and always had been the top division.

Also

One of the two top PPV stars will not be American, Mexican or Puerto Rican.
