The Nevada State Athletic Commission reports the live gate for this past Saturday’s Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero welterweight title fight did a live gate of $9,922,350.
That’s good, but that ranks as only the 16th best gate in Nevada history.
What’s No. 1? Oscar De La Hoya’s junior middleweight title fight against Mayweather in May 2007. That did $18,419,200. As was Saturday’s, that fight was won by Mayweather. However, whereas Mayweather dominated Guerrero, he just got by De La Hoya via split decision.
