    Pathetic.

    Maybe if Wilder would fight a prime top ten heavyweight for once, and if they would come up with a half-decent undercard, the PPV would do better.

    We'll see how it compares to the Joshua-Ruiz II event. That one is less expensive and worth every penny, and there's a very good undercard.

    Let me guess, now Wilder-Fury 2 will be pushed back to marinate

    37000 buys...

    What is there to say. Uh..

    *BURSTS INTO LAUGHTER*

    I mean COME ON, my Cat could do more PPV buys than that. Are you sure they didn't miss a 0 there? That can't be true, surely!

    Is anyone actually surprised it did poorly? I have to admit I didn't expect it to do that poorly though. How reliable are those numbers?

    That Twitter account is not a reliable source. It is an imitation of the Boxing Kingdom account, which itself isn't a reliable source.

    Those aren’t real. I doubt it did very well but not that low
