It may have taken a while to notice why the purse bids for Soliman vs Taylor were so high. Sam Soliman got over one million dollars and Jermain Taylor received close to or over $500K. The total fight revenue wouldn't have been more than $250 K. The question is, why did Al Haymon and his investors lose money on this bout? There is only one answer. Taylor vs Mayweather.
Mayweather will fight for the Middleweight championship of the world against another American. The fight will be massive and its another masterstroke by Al Haymon. This fight makes sense and it is very winnable for Mayweather. Taylor shouldn't pose Floyd to many problems and the fight will be huge. Taylor is a big name in America still and Mayweather as we all know is the biggest name in boxing.
Expect Mayweather vs Taylor to be next.
