Mayweather Vs. Cotto Hits 1.5 Million PPV Buy Mark

Last weekend's pay-per-view boxing mega-event between Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather looks to have done some serious business for HBO. The event, which also featured a "big name bout" between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and "Sugar" Shane Mosley, featured two of the sport's top three draws facing off.

Here's the info from the HBO press release:

The 1.5 million buy total generated $94 million in pay-per-view revenue.

The performance of Mayweather-Cotto ranks as the second highest grossing non-heavyweight pay-per-view event in boxing history. No. 1 all-time is Mayweather's record-setting showdown with Oscar de la Hoya ($137 million) in 2007.
