Larry Merchant asked if Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto will out sell Mayweather Jr vs Marquez? By Johnny Benz (Nov 9, 2009) DoghouseBoxing
Set to debut tonight here at DoghouseBoxing, David Tyler interviews HBO's boxing analyst Larry Merchant. Tyler's interviews are always "can't miss" reading material, and tonight's interview with Merchant is no exception.
Remember to tune in later tonight when the Interview debuts. Also check out Tyler's interview with Manny Pacquiao from Today (A link is provided Below).
For your enjoyment, here is a little teaser from Tyler's interview with Merchant...
David Tyler Larry, the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Juan Manuel Marquez fight drew almost a million viewers. Do you expect this bout to draw more than a million buyers?
Larry Merchant "It would seem to have a chance to do very, very, well because it has the fighters on the card who have such strong connections to their fans. I can’t imagine there is a Filipino in America who wouldn’t want to watch this fight or a Puerto Rican. So that’s two serious ethnic groups that are involved and then you have the Mexican American fans who identify pretty closely with Pacquiao and you have Chavez Jr. on the undercard. So you have those three groups heavily involved plus the rest of us degenerates and even Mayweather fans who will watch hoping Pacquiao wins so Mayweather will have the chance to fight Pacquiao. It seems to me that you have the potential to get into the million range and maybe beyond."
Check back later tonight to read the full Interview.
