Those figures are way too high. Don't think Haye-Harrison or Haye-Ruiz broke the 500,000 mark.

"But according to the British Audience Research Board, only 223,000 viewers paid to watch Haye beat Audley Harrison inside three rounds in November 2010.

Meanwhile, Haye's clash with Valuev in November 2009 had about 469,000 subscribers."

Hatton Mayweather did an estimated 1.2M Buys IIRC it was in the Telegraph.

Hatton/Mayweather certainly did one million plus buys- the hype on the fight was unreal.

To be fair, that BBC figure for Haye-Harrison doesn't seem to correlate very well with the idea (in the same article) that Haye got paid 4.2m for the Harrison fight...

yeh based in Haye getting 50% which was the rumoured deal he would have got 1,675,000 and i cant see where another 2.5mil+ would come from, especially when harrison got a million.

I remember Mayweather speaking about a fight with Pacquiao saying something like “I’m more popular in the UK than Pacquiao is in America, Hatton did 1.3million in the UK alone Pacquiao/Hatton didn’t even get that in America”

That’s what he said, but with more swear words and African American euphemisms.

Considering the amount of people who would watch the fight round a friends or at a bar, to do over a million buys is insane! That said, it felt like everyone was staying up for Hatton v Mayweather
