Mayweather Should Get The Most Money, Says Schaefer

By Mark Vester

According to Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, Floyd Mayweather Jr. should be the one to get the bulk of the money in a potential fight with Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto or whoever else. Schaefer told’s Bill Emes that Mayweather showed his ability to generate money with the recent pay-per-view buyrate of 1 million homes for his fight with Juan Manuel Marquez in September.

“Floyd Mayweather is not afraid of fighting anyone. At the same time, if he's the one who is generating most of the money - why shouldn't he be treated as such. Oscar was the one who generated most of the money. Oscar, in every one of his fights, got the bulk of the money so why shouldn't Mayweather do the same. I don't understand. There shouldn’t be no double standards,” Schaefer said.

All is not lost. Schaefer said there could be a compromise if the November 14 bout between Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto happens to generate a buyrate that is equal to 1 million homes, or higher. But if the event is not at the same buy level of Mayweather-Marquez, then Schaefer sees no reason for a split of 50-50 on the money [with the winner of Pacquiao-Cotto].

“If Pacquiao and Cotto sell the same amount of homes or more [as Mayweather], then we will have some things to discuss. But if Pacquiao and Cotto is going to sell 600,000 homes or whatever, then why should it be 50-50? Why? Because some boxing fans think it should be? Or maybe not even fans, because some media thinks it should be? It doesn't work like that. I think eventually that fight is going to happen. When it happens, it happens, but let it happen naturally,” Schaefer said.
