What do you get when you take one boxer in his mid-30s with dropping pay-per-view numbers, add an even older boxer with a history of domestic abuse whose own sales have plummeted since 2013, spend more than five years scheduling a bout… and still organize it so poorly that tickets don’t even go on sale until a week before the fight?

The most lucrative boxing match of all time, of course!

While criticized by fans of the sport for occurring years past its sell-by date and by fans of women for Floyd’s troubling (seriously troubling) life outside the ring, the numbers behind Mayweather-Pacquiao—crisply illustrated in this Bryan Mayes infographic—prove that for these two lucky pugilists, getting hit in the face is a sweet-ass science indeed.
