There are reasons for it to be on that card, and there are reasons for it not to be. I have a vision for [the Mayweather-Canelo undercard] and let’s see what I can do.” Richard Schaefer and Oscar De La Hoya (AP)Garcia-Matthysse is going to be an expensive fight, and will require millions of dollars to make, making it the kind of fight that usually gets its own date rather than winding up on pay-per-view. But adding that bout to the pay-per-view card will have a significant impact on the business. There will be casual fans, who only watch one or two fights a year, who buy the Mayweather-Canelo show.
