Mayweather-Pacquaio fight by the numbers

The aftermath of the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao fight has proven to be more interesting for many than the actual fight, but boy, did it make money.

A pair of fans felt so ripped off, they filed a lawsuit asking for $5 million in damages revolving around Pacquiao’s shoulder injury. Another was filed Wednesday by a man who bought the pay-per-view. Mayweather was also sued, by an ex-girlfriend, for $20 million.

Fans’ excitement rose again when Mayweather said Tuesday he wanted to fight Pacquiao again in 2016. But SportsCenter reported Thursday that Mayweather changed his mind.

Despite all of this, Las Vegas was happy. A lot of people brought in a lot of money.

Think about this: 2,000,000 drinks were served fight weekend. Say the drink average was $5. That’s $10 million right there, not factoring in all the fancy $10 fight-themed cocktails.
