NEW YORK -- HBO Sportsฎ  reported today that 1.5 million pay-per-view buys were generated from the May 5 super welterweight title fight between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.  The fight was promoted by Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions.

The 1.5 million buy total generated $94 million in pay-per-view revenue.   

The performance of Mayweather-Cotto ranks as the second highest grossing non-heavyweight pay-per-view event in boxing history.   No. 1 all-time is Mayweather’s record-setting showdown with Oscar de la Hoya ($137 million) in 2007. 

Mayweather owns a perfect 43-0 record as a professional prizefighter.

Mayweather vs. Cotto along with the co-feature of Alvarez vs. Mosley will replay exclusively on HBO Saturday, May 12 at 10:15 p.m. ET/ PT.

Floyd Mayweather would like to thank Cotto and Alvarez for making his event the 2nd highest non heavyweight ppv event of all time. He also would like to thank them for giving him the highest guarantee of any boxer of all time. Thanks Cotto and Alvarez. Mayweather couldnt have done it without you....
