Count on it.
The pot has already been split very favourably in De La Hoya's direction.

De la Hoya is reportedly being paid £15m and Mayweather, 30, £6m.

He was able to negotiate this crazy split based on his huge popularity and residual credibility. He won't have that credibility any more after Mayweather wins this fight, so he won't be able to work toward a better payday. This is his pension fund. He just wants to get out healthy.
