3) In case you ask me why he is a PPV draw; compare his opponents ppv figures with other fighters. With Floyd those guys reached record breaking figures. Yes De La Hoya is a draw but he has never come close to 2 million ppv sales. Outside of fighting Pacquiao Cotto hasn't come close to a million sales either.
Obviously Floyd's sales benefit from fighting high profile opposition but that is kind of what you'd expect from someone putting on a ppv event, fighting a big name to add to the event.
Oscar wasn't prime in the internet and social media era. Some of his numbers were bordering Tyson territory.
If you inflate that to today's standards, I'm pretty damn confident they blow Floyd's #s out the water.
And are you on crack??? The reason why Floyd's #s are so big, is because of Oscar........
