Mayweather, Showtime PPV Enter Into Revenue-Sharing Deal
Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has reached an agreement with Showtime PPV in which he "will be able to fight as much as six times over a span of 30 months," starting with a May 4 bout against Robert Guerrero. The bout will mark Mayweather's 10th PPV event and "third on Cinco de Mayo weekend." Showtime beat out rival HBO for the PPV rights (CSNBAYAREA.com, 2/19).
The agreement is a revenue-sharing deal between Showtime and Mayweather. The fights will be promoted across CBS Corp. media platforms, including the CBS broadcast network (Mayweather Promotions).
