I'd love to say nobody but the promoter, because it is likely true. But really we all want to know who will sell more PPV, Clottey/Pacquaio or Mayweather/Mosley. I gotta say, Clottey is still kind of an unknown and will hurt PPV sales. Pac will sell tons of PPV, but by himself I don't see him selling more than Mayweather and Mosley who are both well known fighters.

I  believe that the promoter  gross the most in PPV Boxing but comparing  the sales in PPV Boxing  between Manny Paquiao Vs. Joshua Clottey and  Mayweather Vs. Shane Mosley, I believe that Paquiao Vs. Clottey Fight  sales gross more compared to  Mayweather Vs. Mosley Fight.  Many boxing fans wanted to see how Paquiao rated as a boxer against Clottey considering that Clottey is taller, with a wider reach too and Clottey is well known for his previous fights.    If ever Paquiao Vs. Mayweather be a reality fight this will be the biggest PPV Sales ever.

Well, we still have a few weeks before the Mayweather/Mosley fight so we don't know for sure yet which one will sell more. My guess is that Mayweather/Mosley is going to sell more because it features two fighters who generally sell well in terms of PPV, compared to Clottey who is a relative unknown. We should know the number of PPV sales from Pac Man/Clottey by the end of this week and I'm guessing it is going to be around 850,000 to 925,000.

The PPV numbers for the Pacquiao-Cotto fight are in and they're just
as inconclusive as they are conclusive. Pacquiao-Cotto generated $70 million with 1.25 million buys, topping  September's   Mayweather-Marquez bout which brought in $52 million on 1.05 million buys. Pacquiao-Cotto is tied for third (De La Hoya-Pacquiao) amongst the largest grossing non-heavyweight fights in boxing history; Mayweather-Marquez is sixth.

I'm not doubting you, but can you post the source where these numbers come from? I'd like to check it out for myself. Thanks!

Here is what I've been able to find about the Pac Man/Clottey fight. First, it appears that Pac Man sold less in the Phillipines than expected. Here is the link to that article:

globalnation.inquirer.net/cebudailynews/news/view/20100315-258796/Fewer-people-watch--latest-Pacman-bout

That is from the Inquirer Global Edition, which says that it is the home of Filipinos worldwide.

Then there are some other articles about Manny not selling out other events in Hawaii, due to very poor ticket sales. You can read about it here:

Seems like Manny is having a harder time than normal to sell out venues.

I believe that  your analysis is just  the opposite LOL     I for one believe that The Pacman-Clottey has more PPCV buys compared to Mayweather-Mosley fight.

Well we now know that Pac Man vs Clottey did about 700,000 PPV sales. So the number is there for Mosley and Mayweather to surpass.

Well, here is the final verdict. Pac Man vs Clottey did about 700,000 PPV sales compared to Mosley vs Mayweather which did 1,400,000 PPV sales. That's double.

Go check the article here if you doubt me:

sports.espn.go.com/sports/boxing/news/story

"Mayweather's lopsided decision victory against Shane Mosley (46-6, 39 KOs) on May 1 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas generated 1.4 million domestic pay-per-view buys and $78.3 million in television revenue, HBO announced on Tuesday. That makes the fight the second-biggest non-heavyweight pay-per-view bout in history."

And it makes it a hell of a lot bigger fight, in terms of PPV sales and revenue, than Pacquiao vs Clottey. 'Nuff said.
