The Saturday night bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas is expected to break all previous records when it comes to ticket sales, pay-per-view buys and purses. They have already generated approximately $74 million in gate revenue, which shatters the previous record of just over $20 million, set at Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez in 2013. The average price of a ticket to see Mayweather vs. Pacquiao is more than the average price for the last Super Bowl. The pay-per-view numbers, with expectations currently soaring over 3 million buys. That would shatter the previous record of 2.4 million held by Mayweather’s bout against Oscar De La Hoya. The money for Mayweather-Pacquiao will far exceed that fight, however, because the asking price for the card comes in at $90 for standard definition and a whopping $100 for high definition — the highest prices in history for a boxing pay-per-view match.

There was a time not that long ago when boxing was as big as any sport in the United States. The best fights drew monstrous crowds both in person and on television. There’s no exact day when boxing started to lose its appeal — maybe it was when the most important fights moved to pay-per-view or maybe Mike Tyson’s spiral from the deadliest puncher in the game to a stunning loss to Buster Douglas to prison sentence had something to do with it. The point is, boxing fell out of the national spotlight for several years, and though purists stuck around, the sport suffered with dwindling numbers both at the gate and on TV. Mayweather and Pacquiao haven’t single-handedly brought boxing back to life, but they certainly have played a huge part in giving it a chance to rise from the ashes. Mayweather’s outspoken flash and flair. Pacquiao’s devastating performances. And now the fact they are finally fighting each other is not only a huge moment for the sport of boxing, but an event that transcends pop culture. Mayweather vs. Pacquiao is not only the biggest money fight of all time, it’s also a matchup that could help reignite a nation’s passion for the sport of boxing.
