Boxing and pay-per-views go together like peanut butter and jelly.  Unfortunately, the list of boxing’s biggest draws is somewhat of an endangered species list with a precious few athletes commanding blockbuster-type billing for their fights. 

The Klitschko brothers, Vitali and Wladimir, have been fixtures in boxing’s heavyweight division as the sparring siblings lay claim to every major heavyweight championship.  Their international appeal is also key to doing eye-popping numbers come fight week. 

Miguel Cotto seems to be the forgotten man when it comes to boxing's cash cows, yet his exciting fighting style makes him one of the premier fighters in all of boxing as he can draw over half-a-million buys through his own brand name. 

The buck, of course, stops with Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, who have become the Coca-Cola and Pepsi of boxing through thrilling fights and impressive financial results for their bouts. 

Watch as Big Nasty and B/R video honor the kings of the box office with this list of boxing’s biggest cash cows.
