Hey Dan. nice to talk to you. My question is: Who Makes the MOST MONEY on a big fight such as Pacquiao vs Margarito? We pretty much know how much the two made. But, what about the promoters, cable providers and HBO? Can you give us the breakdown? Thanks!


Dan Rafael (12:06 PM)

Pacquiao Makes Probably in EXCESS of $20 Mil ONCE PPV is ALLl Counted Up. Margarito made $3 million Guaranteed and ONCE the PPV is Counted will Probably EXCEED $6 million or $7 million. Then Top Rank makes a healthy profit. The Cowboys will make some money it would seem between getting back what they paid to host the fight plus concessions, parking, etc... HBO makes a distribution fee on the PPV, usually something like 7%. The cable/dish operators get something like 45% or 50% of the gross PPV revenue, so they make out like bandits.

Boxing’s Pacquiao remains the PPV king, so what can UFC do to compete?

By Dave Meltzer, Yahoo! SportsJan 4, 9:15 pm EST

Manny Pacquiao became the third fighter ever to headline two shows in one year that topped one million buys, establishing himself as the pay-per-view king of 2011.

In drawing 1.41 million buys for his Nov. 12 fight with Juan Manuel Marquez, coming on the heels of 1.10 million buys for his May 7 fight with Shane Mosley, Pacquiao joins Mike Tyson and Brock Lesnar in the select group.

Tyson headlined three shows in 1996 that topped the one million mark: against Evander Holyfield, Bruce Seldon and Frank Bruno. Lesnar, as UFC heavyweight champion, did so twice in 2010, with his title defense against Shane Carwin and title loss to Cain Velasquez.

Georges St-Pierre beating Jake Shields by unanimous decision in April 30 was one of the top PPV shows of 2011.

Pacquiao, who just turned 33, is likely to eventually set the record for most seven-figure main events. He currently has five main events that have topped seven figures and has established he can hit the mark any time he faces an opponent with name value. He’s tied with Holyfield for second place of all-time, behind Tyson’s record of six.


Top 10 PPV shows of 2011 (estimated figures for Dec. 30 Lesnar vs. Overeem are not available)

1. Boxing: Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez, Nov. 12; 1,410,000 buys
2. Boxing: Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Victor Ortiz, Sept. 19; 1,250,000 buys

5. UFC 126: Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort, Feb. 5; 725,000 buys
6. WWE WrestleMania 27: Headliners John Cena, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, The Miz, April 3; 680,000 buys
