Default This Showtime-Mayweather deal can go one of two ways...

Floyd only fights a couple of times (instead of 6), waits out his 30 months and Showtime loses out on a **** load of money

OR

Showtime/Golden Boy actually get Mayweather to fight 6 times and he goes the route of Mike Tyson... eventually getting beat and losing a series of fights as he becomes an old man.

I didn't really read the announcement, but there is no way Floyd fights every 5 months. Showtime have probably just made a provision,that if he wants to fight that many time, they will make sure he can be scheduled and programmed in to fight

There's a third way - if Mayweather is guaranteed the money for whatever opponents he chooses he could end up fighting a series of B or C Class fighters just to get the money in the bank.

Mayweather vs Spadafora, Malignaggi etc.. etc.. These could become real fights under this deal. Mega match ups might not happen, if Mayweather is getting paid top dollar regardless.

I doubt they lose a boatload of money if he doesn't fight. I'm sure there was some guaranteed amount to leave HBO, but the majority of the potential is more than likely a revenue-sharing agreement, they make money if he fights (as does he), but it's not like they're gonna pay him to sit out. Espinoza isn't that dumb.

That scenario wouldn't happen because the deal is on a per fight basis - so if Mayweather only fought 2 fights then Showtime only pay him for two fights - not for the full 6 fights.

Showtime doesn't pay him, they take a % of the PPV revenue for promoting and handling the fight. It's no different than what HBO did/does.

I'm pretty damn sure Showtime through a good chunk of change at Floyd to get him over from their rival network.

Could be wrong.

I don't see the Tyson analogy.

At all.

Or they undercut HBO by offering the same service for a lower % of the PPV.

I think Floyd fight 5 more times. 2 in 2013, 2 in 2014, and one finale in 2015
