Many boxing analysts believe that the one who can realistically sell a million PPVs in the U.S., maybe even 1.25-million like Pacquiao-De La Hoya did in their Dream Match fight, is Mayweather vs. Pacquiao for the undisputed pound-for-pound crown.
Thirteen months have passed since Floyd Mayweather Jr. Last fight and Money is ready to come back from his vacation again, presumably in the fall.
After the Dream Match where the Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao totally crushed Oscar De La Hoya into virtual retirement last December 6, 2008, Trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. said his son, Floyd Jr., has sent feelers to the family that he wants to challenge Pacquiao in a fight that could be a battle for the mythical pound-for-pound title.
On the other side, Pacquiao is busy negotiating with Ricky Hatton's corner. Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton took a huge step closer to completion Tuesday after the British slugger agreed to stage the light-welterweight duel in Las Vegas for the May 2 showdown.
Many boxing fans seein that after Pacquaio-Hatton, they would love to see Mayweather on the ring with the Filipino icon which many believes to become the number one hits off all time in terms of profits.
The top sport still belongs to the Mayweather-De La Hoya fight last 2007, which Floyd Jr. won via decision. The Dream Match is well on its way to becoming the second best grossing non-heavyweight fight in terms of pay-per-view purchases, Top Rank chief Bob Arum said.
