Post Comments Thread For: Mayweather's Easy Win Makes Showtime’s Job Tougher

By Lyle Fitzsimmons - When are 2 million pay-per-view buys and the largest-grossing fight in history a bad thing?

Well, OK, they’re never a bad thing.

But just because Showtime’s hottest boxing property took another step on Sept. 14 toward the ladder rungs occupied by names like Hagler, Hearns, Leonard and Duran, doesn’t mean it’s a similarly slam-dunk windfall every time he appears from this day forward.

True, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is just two fights into the deal that’s in no small way responsible for a perception switch that’s moved the perpetual little brother to the head of the premium cable table more often occupied by its “Network of Champions” nemesis.

Nonetheless, the ease with which a 36-year-old “Money” dispatched Mexican heartthrob Saul “Canelo” Alvarez – who entered the ring 13 years younger, and 15 pounds heavier – may have done far more harm than good when it comes to marketing the Mayweather product.

If nothing else, the decisive win made the final four fights more of a task to sell to a progressively more jaded customer base – which necessitates the folks in the executive wing getting a little creative.

Whether the match with Mayweather came too soon on Alvarez’s career arc – or whether it would have mattered a year later – is up for debate. But what’s not in dispute is that the redhead was far and away the most lucrative of the practically possible opponents. [Click Here To Read More]

Their really is no other big money, top gate selling, and big PPV fight out there for Floyd other then Pacman..

Garcia wont draw crowds, snooze fest really...

Martinez aint draining himself..

If Bradley beats Marquez, Bradley has a 4 man fan base, his 2 kids, wife, and Cameron Dunkin..

No real big money opponents that fans, casual fans, and others would pay for especially for 75bucks.

Garcia = Flop
Alexander = Flop
Khan = Decent numbers because the european and mid eastern fan base
Martinez = Huge numbers if the fighter can make 154 not sure he can after such a lengthy lay off
Molina = Snoozefest
Pacquaio = Still breaks the record because both men have huge fanbases across the entire planet..even with a Rios loss on the cards Pacquaio still will draw huge crowds as long as he isnt ko'd again.
Marquez = Not happening
Bradley = Not happening
Lara = Too small of a fan base
Thurman = Too small of a fan base

I mean one never knows, because based on how they promote the fight folks actually thought Ortiz and Guerrero were good matchups although neither man really had much a name out there.

I hope Floyd doesn't try standing more flat footed in his next fight just to "appease" the fans and make it seem like the fight was actually more competitive than it had to be. He made that mistake in the Cotto fight and hopefully he doesn't do it again.

The fact is there is no one from 140 to 154 who can trouble Mayweather.

I think Angel is key in selling Garcia-Mayweather, as much as I like Danny that's a mismatch though.

Beyond fellow welters or rising lighter men, the most interesting quarry for Mayweather lies another division past Alvarez.

WBC middleweight champ Sergio Martinez was the last of the names suggested by Espinoza – he dismissed Gennady Golovkin and Andre Ward as too big – and the former 154-pound titleholder has expressed past interest in a Mayweather match, perhaps even at a midpoint catchweight.

Sergio’s promoter, Lou DiBella, was in Vegas for the Alvarez match, but he refused comment when asked after the fight if he’d had any discussions regarding Martinez and Mayweather.
they open to a Martinez clash. Sergio is known among the Mexican fanbase for kicking JCC Jr's ass

After Garcia and Khan/Alexander there's not many names left. I think he will be forced (by public demand and the networks) to fight Broner whether they want to break up their little love parade or not.
