Default 16 fights this year with an audience of 1 million or more...

Golden Boy was the primary promoter of 10 of the top 16 shows. Top Rank was the primary promoter of four. DiBella Entertainment was the primary promoter of one and Goossen Tutor Promotions and Gary Shaw Productions co-promoted the other.

The boxing shows on cable that did 1.0 million or more viewers live on first airing are:

1. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.-Marco Antonio Rubio, Feb. 4, HBO, 1.9 million
2. Bernard Hopkins-Chad Dawson, April 28, HBO, 1.6 million
3. Chavez Jr.-Andy Lee, June 16, HBO, 1.4 million
4. Adrien Broner-Vicente Escobedo, July 21, HBO, 1.4 million
5. Miguel Cotto-Austin Trout, Dec. 1, Showtime, 1.4 million
6. Nonito Donaire-Jorge Arce, Dec. 15, HBO, 1.3 million
7. Andre Ward-Chad Dawson, Sept. 8, HBO, 1.3 million
8. Floyd Mayweather-Cotto PPV replay, May 12, HBO, 1.3 million
9. Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez PPV replay, Dec. 15, HBO, 1.3 million
10. Danny Garcia-Amir Khan, July 14, HBO, 1.3 million
11. Erik Morales-Garcia I, March 24, HBO, 1.2 million
12. Robert Guerrero-Andre Berto, Nov. 24, HBO, 1.1 million
13. Marcos Maidana-Devon Alexander, Feb. 25, HBO, 1.1 million
14. Broner-Antonio Demarco, Nov. 17, HBO, 1.1 million
15. Sergio Martinez-Matthew Macklin, March 17, HBO, 1.1 million
16. Canelo Alvarez-Josesito Lopez, Sept. 15, Showtime, 1.0 million



Top Rank is slipping. Big trouble if Chavez Jr. jumps ship.

I'm pretty sure this is an accurate color coding.

Canelo should jump over to HBO. Big mistake choosing to go with Showtime.

He didn't choose, GBP did. Their former number 3 guy is now the guy running Showtime Sports.

Crazy to think 1 mil viewers for free is an achievement. Meanwhile 1mil viewers paying $50+ per ppv is a let down for Pac/Floyd. Surprised the fights on for free isn't doing 3mil+ on the regular. How many viewers do big events in other sports do in the US on cable TV?

HBO and SHOWTIME isn`t free tv as far as i know. I read somewhere that HBO is only available for 30 million Americans. Showtime even less. So i think 1 million + viewers for a Boxing fight (remember Boxing aint mainstream) isnt that bad.

HBO is not free. It's a subscription network, like Sky.

How did Khan Vs Garcia reach views like Pacquiao Vs Marquez?

Pac-Marquez was a replay, a week after the fight.
