The aftermath of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Robert Guerrero fight has been more focused on the business of the fight than what happened in the ring.
Over the course of 12 rounds, Mayweather put on a clinic against Guerrero, winning a clear decision and sending another challenger packing. Once the fight was over, though, talk shifted to the potential that the fight bombed at the box office, producing less than 1 million PPV purchases.
However, according to the latest information from Showtime, the fight did indeed exceed that total, making it a financial success, and at least ensuring that Showtime broke even.

In a story on RingTV.com, Showtime executive VP and general manager of Showtime sports Stephen Espinoza had this to say:
"We wanted to take our time and wait until we had enough data to speak responsibly about this, so based on what we've seen, now we are very comfortable saying that we're definitely going to exceed a million pay per view buys.
