So he'll be fighting six more times, eh? Man, that'll take six years. He retired in his prime years and he'll be fighting in his late thirties? What a joke.

I'm just guessing here.

But I have a feeling Showtime threw a 9 figure number at Floyd, with "incentive clauses", with a whole lot of lawyer speak in the contract.

Probably like signing a multi year Pro-Bowler or All-Star Hall of Famer a front loaded contract.

I see about 3 fights then he's done. He is getting paid alot of money.he promotes himself with strictly business.everything is about money first,then the fight is second. I bet butt hurt pac-boy is really jealous now.he'll continue to hate on mayweather,but oh well.

If you factor that than there are alot of athletes that make more than him including Pacquiao
hahaha the same pacquiao who gets ripped of by arum, when you factor that he doesn't earn anywhere near as much as floyd, i don't know why you care unless you're getting a cut of pacquiao's money

Owned.

Oh these Pac tards, how they cry. But don't worry. If Manny needs money I'm sure Bob will give him an advance from his next fight.

It won't be anywhere close to the $40 million straight cash that he could have gotten from Floyd. But Manny seems happy with that so.....

Very nice move by Showtime. But, does anybody really see Floyd fighting six more times? Maybe he had a change of heart in terms of his legacy or something.

There's no indication that it's the biggest deal in history. Except for the reporter's headlines we really know nothing except that we're told it's for 30 months, it's for UP TO 6 FIGHTS, (which, realistically means 2-3), and that's it a multi-million dollar deal (anything from $2 mill upwards). Mayweather actually now needs to fight more, t the end of his career to ensure a reasonable retirement package, since he must be almost broke from all the legal settlements he's had to make in the past 6 mo ths.

HBO are not going into receivership, nor is Top Rank. It is no harm for Top Rank to be upstaged-if they really were- because untul now they've been at the head of all the boxing inovations, They're busy enough with their new entrance into the potentially overwhelming China market, which seems to have been overlooked a bit.

Pretty soon Broner will replace Mayweather. Broner would beat Mayweather today, if he fought him. Mayweather is getting old and slow. Just a matter of time. It happens to all boxers later in their careers. Good for boxing to have these new talented guys coming up.
