Thats a very very high figure, I heard Roger Mayweather say the fight between Pac and PBF would bring in arond $100..

 

Surely this cant be bigger than that? I think our friend Richard is just making it out to be a tad bigger than it is.. Though i could be wrong

I agree Ian....that amount of money could'nt be generated by Haye vs a Klit fight as either of the brothers have any real pull for the American public...With one exception... if they were to face each other!!!

 

Thats why they bhave kept a German base for their fights!

 

Ive no doubt the fight would generate large amounts, especially if Haye demolishes Ruiz and keeps up the brashness that the American fans seem to enjoy...but how could it be more of a pull than a Manny v PBF fight if the 100 Million is an accurate sum, when half of the World wants to see that fight arguably with only a Klit v Klit fight bigger!

What are the figures for Mayweather / Marquez? I think you'll find the biggest numbers for Mayweather fights were when the opponent was well known, Gatti, Oscar, and Hatton. If Haye gets a couple of muppets that he can KO tyson style, the yanks will pay to see him fight a Klitch, particularly Vitali. The trash talk ( if it works ) will almost guarantee that.

Oh i agree with you on that McBride. Haye will sell.. Just not the 120 mill thats being banded around.

 

Not sure on the official fig for JMM v PBF though i do know hit hammered the UFC in the ratings

 

Your more than probably right Ian, but to me its not beyond the realms of possibility. There are many things to factor in, particularly Haye finding opponents that he can smash the way Tyson did, before fighting Klitch. Especially if a couple of them are American. The yanks have always looked upon the Heavies as the platinum division, probably because they usually had the best of them.

 

Not too sure but isn't the highest grossing fight ever Lennox / Holy, or Lennox / Tyson?
