Mayweather-Maidana II hasn’t even begun and the gloves are already coming off.

Win or lose, Mayweather is set to receive a whopping $41.5 million from the fight, the largest purse ever, passing Evander Holyfield’s payday for his 1997 rematch with Mike Tyson. The average price for Mayweather vs. Alvarez tickets is currently $3490, down $258 in the last 2 weeks.
7/3/13 - Undefeated and widely considered to be the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, Floyd Mayweather is one of the biggest stars in boxing. Known for his outspoken and arrogant temperament, Mayweather certainly puts his money where his mouth is. For the last two years, he has been named the highest-earning athlete in America over the likes of Tiger Woods and Lebron James. In February, Mayweather signed a six-fight deal with Showtime worth an estimated $200 million. In the first fight of the deal, Mayweather dominated challenger Robert “Ghost” Guerrero. The fight was also Mayweather’s first following his prison-forced hiatus.
Mayweather’s next fight comes on September 14th, 2013 against fellow undefeated fighter Canelo Alvarez. Mexican boxer Alvarez is an emerging star, and at just 22 years old, is 13 years younger than Mayweather. While the fight will be held on Mayweather’s home turf at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, it will take place on Mexican Independence Day and Alvarez should receive strong crowd support. Mayweather will move up in weight for the fight, agreeing to a light-middleweight bout for just the third time in his long career. Expect extremely high demand for Mayweather tickets, now averaging more than Mayweather’s last two fights against Guerrero and Juan Manual Marquez combined.
