    If you were a promoter and could make any THREE matches to appear on a PPV event and then charge any price which matches would you make? and what price?

    Mayweather vs Cotto
    Pavlik vs Calzaghe
    Katsidis vs Juan Diaz (sorry I just want to see it)

    And in an ideal world id have it for free but this is unlikely. So id just charge people $10 to watch this PPV. LOL. Mayweather would flip.

    Would the participants fight for free just for your entertainment? How do you pay them?

    Oh know theyd get paid but the PPV wouldnt cost much.

    Obviously its unrealistic that this would ever happen but the fighters would get paid a ton.

    Here's mine.

    Title: "Protect Your Neck - Nothin' But Knockouts."

    HW: David Haye/Wlad Klitschko
    JWW: Ricky Hatton/Paulie Malinaggi
    MW: Kelly Pav/John Duddy
    LW: Juan Diaz/David Diaz
    LMW: Sergio Mora/Vernon Forrest :icon_chee


    The price is easy, $44.99. - It'll do 2.7 million buys and break every record - generate over $120 million
    Ringsides tickets $800 going all the way to balcony $150 - Live gate approx $9 million
    Plus concessions and ALL exclusive afterfight parties. All the fighters still get a huge payday.

    Me > UFC
