 But with a mega pay per view opportunity with Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin on September 16, I'm not sure the market could bear back to back PPV investments, so late October or early November could be the target dates to get this fight on the books for 2017.

I think that Espinoza chose his words wisely and for good reason

 

. By saying this would be a complex negotiation could be an understatement, especially taking into account the numbers we've been hearing from both Mayweather and McGregor with regard to their minimum purse demands.

 

Without getting too deep and sounding like an accountant, let's look at some basic numbers to give you a general idea as to how this works. To get to the $100 million purse amounts that have been bandied about, this bout would have to equal or exceed the revenue generated for the 2015 Floyd Mayweather vs Conor Mcgregor Fight bout that generated 4.4 million PPV sales exceeding $400 million in revenue. Add a live gate in excess of $70 million and another 40,000 closed circuit seats and you have an event that exceeded $500 million. The Mayweather-Pacquaio PPV cost customers $89.95.

 

Based on Espinoza confirming Showtime would be involved, we're looking at the traditional model regarding the split. So it’s likely this bout would follow the boxing model where the cable, satellite and telephone companies would receive half of the PPV revenue right off the top and Showtime would receive 7.5 percent off the top as well. 

 

If Mayweather and McGregor work off the same 60-40 split that Mayweather and Pacquiao worked with, then you can create all sorts of models that would provide a range where it's reasonable Mayweather could earn between $60 million to $80 million and McGregor, who has to share his cut with the UFC, depending on how that deal is structured, could be looking at $20 million to $40 million. Even at the lower number, McGregor would earn more than double his highest pay day with the UFC.

 

Is this enough money for Floyd Mayweather? I feel that's the real question. In the end, I don't see Conor McGregor walking away from the biggest payday of his career. Only time will tell, however, it feels like time is running out for 2017.The bout to determine worldwide pound-for-pound supremacy is fighting for attention, so it doesn’t help that one of the combatants has stopped talking.

Wednesday’s announcement that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is returning from retirement to meet UFC champion Conor McGregor in a boxing match Aug. 26 has distracted from Saturday’s light-heavyweight title rematch between unbeaten Andre Ward and Russia’s Sergey Kovalev.

Ward won the tightly contested first bout in November by rising from an early knockdown to edge Kovalev on three 114-113 scorecards. The rematch between the bitter rivals is drenched in Kovalev’s desperation and Ward’s ambition to surpass Gennady Golovkin as the world’s No. 1 boxer.

Yet the bout is struggling to sell out even the 10,300-seat Mandalay Bay Resort venue,, and there are concerns it won’t match the 160,000 pay-per-view buys of November.

“The question I’ve gotten most often is ‘Do you think this fight should be bigger?’” Kovalev promoter Kathy Duva said. “I looked on Google today and it’s all Mayweather Mcgregor Fightand the circus. … It’s a kick in the teeth. … This is the fight everybody asks for: The best fighting the best.”
