Floyd Mayweather is definitely living up to his nickname "Money," as the boxing superstar has reportedly earned the largest guaranteed purse in history at a whopping $32 million. This amount surpasses Mike Tyson's back in 1997, when he stepped in the ring for a cool $30 million.
Saturday night's fight is projected to sell well over 1 million PPV buys, at $59.95 each. Pacquiao’s fight with Marquez in November was estimated to be watched on PPV by 1.3-1.5 million people.
Miguel Cotto is promised $8 million, but he’ll actually be pulling in an additional $20-$25 million from Mayweather, who paid the WBA Light Middleweight champion to forfeit the proceed from the PPV buys.
