Where do Mayweather, Pacquiao and GGG v Canelo feature on the Top 35 all-time Las Vegas gates?

WBN 12/05/2018

The dust has now settled on the controversial rematch failure between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez as Las Vegas recovers from the first blank Cinco de Mayo boxing weekend since 2008.

Golovkin and Canelo were due to trade blows again on May 5 at the T-Mobile Arena until the latter failed a drugs test in the build-up.

It’s easy to see why many thought the fight would go ahead regardless as the first outing in September 2017 is now the third most lucrative Nevada gate of all time behind Floyd Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor respectively.

Taking in over $27 million at the box office, Golovkin v Canelo is big business and sees promoters representing both parties keen to reignite the encounter for September.

Mayweather’s massive achievement of raking in over $200 million dollars in revenue for his bout with Pacquiao will take some beating at the top of the list as the cross-codes battle with MMA star McGregor fell just over $15 million short.

Running the rule over the 35-strong NSAC list, Mayweather takes up an amazing TWELVE spots, with Pacquiao second on NINE appearances.

Next is Oscar De La Hoya on EIGHT, with Mike Tyson surprisingly on only on FOUR. Canelo’s win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last Cinco de Mayo was his FOURTH.

Evander Holyfield features THREE times, whilst Miguel Cotto and Shane Mosley also have a trio of big money bouts in the boxing capital of the world.
