Mayweather, Ali, Tyson, Canelo, Pacquiao: Boxing’s Biggest PPV Stars


the biggest boxing pay-per-view stars of all time have been revealed by talkSPORT and it’s very interesting to see who comes out on top.

The radio station looked at different eras to determine who the biggest fighters were in areas such as viewership numbers and the highest paid fighters at the time.

Obviously, it’s difficult to compare your older generations to the present day, especially with the influx of money and financial support from sport, but talkSPORT has taken inflation into account in its findings.

You might think the top of the list will be a fighter who has been involved lately, but that’s not the case at all.

Mohamed Ali topped the list due to the fact that Ali vs. George Foreman grossed $100 million and was watched by a billion people worldwide.

He has had many other great fights and due to his charismatic personality he has sold out many arenas, and if he was fighting in the present day his paydays would be mind blowing.

In second place is iron mike tyson. The Baddest Man on the Planet was able to generate a massive following because he was capable of a knockout at any moment.

Floyd Mayweather is next, although not as exciting as the other names that appear on the list.

His fights against Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor were massive. This has helped him earn around $1 billion over his career.

Jack Dempsey fought in the 1920s, but the man who was part of the first million dollar front door in front of 91,000 people is next.

Sugar Ray Leonard appears in fifth place and George Foreman follows.

Foreman was part of “The Rumble in the Jungle” with Ali, but he was a box office hit in his own right.

Sugar Ray Robinson was a trendsetter and he made over $4 million, which was an incredible sum in the days of the 1950s and 1960s. That’s enough to earn him the seventh spot on the list.

In eighth and ninth position are De La Hoya and Pacquiao. They both had massive fights against Mayweather where they were meant to fail, but the duo gained incredible popularity over the course of their careers.

The only currently active boxer on the roster completes the top 10 – this man being Mexican Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

He has earned $225 million so far in his career and is massive in Mexico and the United States in particular.
