Mayweather-Berto pay-per-view buys "generously" estimated at 550,000

If Floyd wasn't already making a guaranteed $32 million, the news might have been devastating.

I don't know what kind of numbers Floyd was hoping for in his last fight, but I'm pretty sure they were a little more than what he got.

According to Dan Rafael, last weekend's card pulled Floyd's worst PPV numbers since his fights with Arturo Gatti and Carlos Baldomir in 2005 and 2006, respectively.

For those keeping count, that's about 300,000 less than the assumed buys from Floyd's fight with Robert Guerrero.

While it's still more buys than I would prefer, I won't deny a certain amount of schadenfreude. But we've all made our complaints already. Just remember these numbers once Golovkin-Lemieux rolls into town next month.
