Default De La Hoya Vs Mayweather, Who got paid the most money?

Quote:
A person close to the promotion said De La Hoya would end up making about $45 million for the fight and Mayweather just over $20 million. That person requested anonymity because the promoters did not want official figures released.

The $45 million would be the biggest purse paid to a fighter, higher than the $35 million purses Tyson and Holyfield reportedly were paid for the infamous “Bite Fight.”

Mayweather beat De La Hoya on a split decision Saturday night in an entertaining fight that drew a record live gate of $19 million at the MGM Grand Garden arena. Mayweather won on two of the three ringside scorecards to win the WBC 154-pound title.

Yeah as soon as i heard the song i though Oscar should exit to it.

I dont think Floyd will retire now that he sees the type of money Oscar got because he will want that now.

im pretty sure he knew this beforehand. oscar is the biggest draw in boxing and floyd isnt a big draw especially considering his skills as a fighter. he isnt cuz hes not an exciting fighter (as we saw this weekend) and people dont really like him. they dont make purses based on winner-loser anyway. ive never been much of a oscar fan anyway, he doesnt seem to do anything too well. for instance he doesnt have great handspeed like fighters like floyd, shane, etc and he isnt a huge puncher or defensive fighter so i wonder why he has such a HUGE following. i know part of it is cuz he fights the best and he deserves the credit for that, but even if he hadnt he'd still have it. it must be his looks (as he was known for back then) and his "all-american" image, even though hes mexican, and of course his mexican following. hes ok to me and i like the fact that he doesnt duck anyone, so im not hating, just wonderin

The contract signed was.

Mayweather to get $10mil to fight and 30% of the ppv money.

De La Hoya to get $22 to fight and 70% of the ppv money.

Oscar is known as mr ppv and people pay to watch him box. This is why he got more of the ppv% and he got more to fight because. 1 he was champ. 2 he is mr ppv and 3 his company did the promoting.
