Try Hopkins vs Dawson - 15, 000. And I think they were at discount.

Does anyone remember when Paul Williams was scheduled to fight Kelly Pavlik? Pavlik backed-out twice, and eventually claimed he had an injury only to fight two weeks after the originally scheduled date. He fought Marco Antonio Rubio on PPV. Still haven't seen those numbers.

I have a feeling that Void's fight with Khan will not do so well, at least not do anywhere as well as Voids is used to having..........that fight should be called "Con"...............

A lot of Latin Fury and Pinoy Power PPV's make those numbers look great.

The numbers got so bad, Arum stopped putting them on.

yeah but those were PPV cause there was no network interested in those fights. That was the bussiness model back then. Now there are a lot more channels showing boxing, like NBC and Fox Sports with budgets between HBO Showtime and ESPN2..

For HBO or Showtime PPV's i think Hopkins Dawson did 40 K, Maskaev Rahman II did around that same number. That must be the 2 worst..

Even if it does 900k which is "low" for Mayweather it would have doubled Pac-Rios. LoL
