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.
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.
