Schaefer: Mayweather vs. Mosley Does Big Business

By Ryan Burton

According to Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, the mega-event featuring Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Shane Mosley, did big business in Las Vegas. The attendance at the MGM Grand Garden was 15,117. The full capacity, if not scaled down, is 17,157. The gate was over $11 million dollars and 12,448 closed circuit tickets were sold. Mayweather dominated Mosley over twelve rounds to win a unanimous decision.

The fight is now done, and the focus will shift to the final buyrate number for the pay-per-view. Most insiders believe the final buyrate number will become a key point in the expected negotiations to make a fight with WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. An early buyrate number is usually released within a few days.

I also find it funny how Pac picked Mosley to win. As he was shocked last night, he will surly be shocked if he ever so dared to step in the same ring with Mayweather.
