Schaefer: 4 Million Buys For Mayweather-Mosley Possible

By Ryan Burton

On Wednesday, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer told the media that before the record-setting fight between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather in 2007, he predicted a buyrate number that would break all pay-per-view records - and he was right.

Prior to last year's Mayweather vs. Marquez pay-per-view, the media laughed at 
Schaefer when he made a bold buyrate prediction of at least 1 million - and he was right again.

"I am not going to say that we are going to break the all time pay-per-view record. I am not going to say we are going to do 3 million either. 4 million pay-per-view buys are possible," Schaefer said.

Schaefer said Mayweather-Mosley is the most heavily promoted fight in history. Because of all the different media and retail outlets who are involved in the event's promotion, and the fight's presence in movie theatres - Schaefer believes the astronomical number of 4 million is possible.

[quote=reedickyaluss;8299017]Just because he was right before doesn't mean he isn't being delussional now. This fight doesn't even touch 2 million, let alone 4 million.[/quote] [FONT=Arial Black][SIZE=3]schaefer = self-pwnage[/SIZE][/FONT]

[QUOTE=big_james10;8218512]Schafer predicted Oscar/Mayweather would break the PPV record. He was right! Schaffer predicted Mayweather/Marquez would do 1 million PPVs. He was right! Bob Arum predicted that Pac/Cotto would sell 1.5 million on PPV. He was wrong! So, who is delusional?[/QUOTE]…
