Mayweather vs Pacquiao: Vasyl Lomachenko officially added to undercard

Post by kayneoTheRisingWarrior on Sun Mar 15, 2015 6:38 pm

By Scott Christ]Scott Christ scottchristBLH@scottchristBLHon Mar 12, 2015, 5:47p

hough it's been known to be in the works for a couple weeks now, today it was officially confirmed that Vasyl Lomachenko will defend the WBO featherweight title on May 2 against Gamalier Rodriguez, as part of the Mayweather-Pacquiao PPV undercard.
Lomachenko (3-1, 1 KO) doesn't have a big pro record, but he already holds a major title, and the two-time Olympic gold medalist is one of the most purely skilled fighters in the world. At 27, Lomachenko has wasted no time looking to join the elite ranks of the pro boxing world, as he fought for a world title in his second pro fight, a lesson-learning loss to veteran Orlando Salido, and won a vacant title in his third fight by beating Gary Russell Jr.
Lomachenko last fought on November 23, beating Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo in Macau on the Pacquiao-Algieri bill.
Rodriguez (25-2-3, 17 KO) was also recently connected to WBA titleholder Nicholas Walters as a potential opponent, but now has Lomachenko in his sights. The 28-year-old Puerto Rican isn't considered a serious contender in the division, but is on a 17-fight win streak dating back to 2011, all against marginal opposition of varying degrees. He racked up 11 of those wins fighting scrubs in the Dominican Republic, where he sort of rebuilt his career after starting 8-2-3. After the 11 wins in the Dominican Republic, Rodriguez has gone 4-0 in Puerto Rico, 1-0 in another fight in the Dominican, and 3-0 in the United States.
Lomachenko-Rodriguez will be one of just two undercard fights that are part of the PPV broadcast, rather than the standard three. This is Top Rank's addition to the card, while the other undercard fight will be from Mayweather Promotions

Mayweather-Pacquiao Boxing Match to Cost $99 on Pay-Per-View

Post by kayneoTheRisingWarrior on Wed Apr 01, 2015 8:06 pm

Fight will cost $99 for a high-definition feed and $89 for standard definition, both record prices

A month before boxers Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao even enter the ring, their May 2 title fight is already breaking records, with the pay-per-view bout set to cost fans $99 according to people close to the negotiations between the networks and TV distributors.
HBO and Showtime, which are handling negotiations for the camps of Mr. Pacquiao and Mr. Mayweather respectively, are expected to wrap up deals with major pay-TV distributors in the next few days for the highly anticipated welterweight title fight. The negotiations stalled last week as distributors and HBO and Showtime sparred over the split of what is expected to be record-setting pay-per-view revenue.
Under the terms being discussed, the fight will be sold for $99 for a high-definition feed and $89 for standard definition, both of which are record prices.

Initially, pay TV distributors were asked to give up as much as 70% of the revenue instead of the usual 50% to 55%. That offer was quickly rejected.
The tentative agreement now being hammered out will be less favorable to the distributors than the standard deal but not as drastic as the first offer, people with knowledge of the terms said. The final split will also be determined by the amount of marketing and promotions the various cable operators put into the fight. If certain incentives are met, the distributors have the potential to get 40% of the pay-per-view revenue.

The key deals for HBO and Showtime are with iN Demand, which negotiates on behalf of Comcast Corp., Time Warner Cable Inc. and other large cable companies, and with DirecTV, the nation’s largest satellite TV operator with more than 20 million subscribers.

The other distributors that HBO and Showtime will try to reach accords with are Dish Network and Vubiquity, which handles negotiations for AT&T Inc. and other distributors.
Boxing enthusiasts have been waiting years for this fight and the popularity of Mr. Mayweather and Mr. Pacquiao is such that the bout is expected to be of interest to more than just the hard-core fan. Some industry observers have predicted that it could top three million pay-per-view purchases, which could amount to upward of $300 million. The current record is $152 million for Mr. Mayweather’s fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
But with the fight only a month away, it is crucial to wrap up the pay-per-view deals quickly so distributors can start hawking the match to consumers.

That's obscene. Has any PPV cost that much before?

Dana wishes he could charge that much.
