Floyd Mayweather vs. Miguel Cotto has sold over 1.5 million pay-per-view buys according to figures released by HBO and presented by Boxing Scene.

These figures make Mayweather-Cotto the second-highest grossing non-heavyweight PPV of all time. The record holder is Mayweather's 2007 bout with Oscar De La Hoya, which sold over 2.4 million PPV buys.

With that said, is the 50-50 deal between Mayweather and rival Manny Pacquiao now officially dead? Pacquiao has stated that he wants 50-50 of all revenue if he is to face Mayweather.

Mayweather retorts that he deserves the lion's share, not Pacquiao. His defense is his ability to sell more PPV buys. Mayweather-Cotto helps to build his case, but does it mean Mayweather is right?

Here are the two sides, the yes and the no, presented as to whether Mayweather has provided a clear case for him to receive the bulk of the money if ever he should face Pacquiao.
