If the proposed March 13th HBO Pay-Per-View TV event, Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. becomes official, how much would you be willing to pay for the Pay-Per-View? That is the question the L.A. Times is asking of its readers in a poll conducted online. It's a fight that is expected to break records, including highest grossing Pay-Per-View of all time.
Readers of the Los Angeles Times were asked to vote in a poll in which the question was how much they would be
willing to spend on Pay-Per-View to watch the "Money" Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Manny Pacquiao fight?
At the time this article you are reading went to publish, a total 518 votes had been counted. Here are the results of those votes so far:
No more than $30 - 10% (54 votes)
No more than $40 - 4% (21 votes)
No more than $50 - 17% (86 votes)
No more than $60 - 28% (145 votes)
No more than $75 - 10% (52 votes)
No more than $100 - 15% (77 votes)
There is almost no price too big 16% (83 votes)
Total - 518 Votes
The poll which is not scientific so far concludes that the most popular limit on spending for the HBO Pay-Per-View is $60 with 28% of the votes. Second place went to the $50 dollar limit with 17% of the votes and then oddly for 3rd place at 16% we jump to folks who would be willing to pay almost any amount to catch the HBO PPV telecast. Ok, to me that's just nuts... same with 4th place! With 15% of the votes this class is willing to go to a limit of $100 for this Pay-Per-View.
