It's no different to how back in 2003 6 million on Primetime TV in the US was considered bad but in 2012 that same number is considered good. The more outlets people have to watch things then the more segregated TV ratings become. You think streaming on the PC might cut into TV ratings in the US? Well in Japan the PC is dead and replaced with some hand held gimmick 90% of the people probably have in their pocket already.
Ah of course, should have read the original posting more carefully as that is what you had cautioned.

So, how does the TV rating on Koki vs Naito compares to the Japanese World Series or other major sporting events?

UK boxing got kicked off terrestrial TV in large because the fighters they invested in started going abroad, or similarly jumping to PPV. A home fighter is a terrestrial TV friendly fighter. No one wants to invest money promoting a fight that isn't on till six in the morning.

the Japs are very patriotic people so it doesn't surprise me. I think that's maybe one flaw in Fury's approach that he's playing up the Irish ancestry, the likes of Haye knows the UJ shorts are good for business.

Any idea how many of the fans in Japan follow fights in NA/Europe? I'm under the impression most just want to see their countrymen fight and aren't so much into international world class boxing.

CROZ is wrong.
Koki Kameda vs Hugo Ruiz a 20% is household viewership rates.
Individual viewership rate subside to about half.
Koki Kameda vs Hugo Ruiz viewers is 10million-13million.

and

Koki Kameda is one of the most hated men in Japan.
Koki Kameda is one of the most hated men in Japanese sport history.

No matter how they love boxing, Japan is home to the biggest number of paper champs in the world.

The real explanation is, they avoid dangerous fights. They rather fight bums and tomato cans in their country, rather than proving their skills against genuine opposition.
