Undefeated boxing great, Floyd Mayweather, announced Tuesday (February 19) that he's entered into a massive deal with Showtime Networks, who will comprehensively promote Mayweather's events on the CBS Television Network and other expansive media platforms.
The deal is a unique revenue-sharing arrangement between SHOWTIME PPV and Mayweather, enabling him to fight up to six times over a period of 30 months, with the first mega-event taking place on May 4, 2013, when "Money" Mayweather faces Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero.
More details of this upcoming event will be announced shortly.
While specific numbers were not divulged, Mayweather's camp says it's "by far the biggest in the sport of boxing".
"At this record-setting PPV performance level, if all six fights contemplated by this deal occur, it will be the richest individual athlete deal in all of sports," a rep said.
