Around 250,000 buys less than last time, no? Actually not bad, given the circs. And those who didn't buy this time might now wish they had, in light of the post-fight buzz.
Still a success, given the fact Wilder was supposed to get demolished with no chance in hell!
Obviously wasn't going to do as well as last time but it's a lot better than the first fight, so it goes to show how they've grown in popularity since the first fight. Solid numbers, could of been a lot worse considering many saw this 3rd fight as a foregone conclusion.
I thought it would be like 350k, so this is great. Good for them, because the people who ordered surely got their money's worth.
Maybe this will enable TR to bring Usyk to Las Vegas for the unification.
So nobody cares that there were COMMERCIALS during this so called PPV event? PPV can **** off and die! When I first started buying PPVs in the 80s it was for the express reason of avoiding the damned commercials. Then It started with short 15 second ads, I seem to remember a proper 12 commercial during a recent PPV. Now it's full blown ads, just like the old days of network tv. Every event I am reminded that I made the right decision avoiding PPVs.
I know a lot of people who watched this fight through "unofficial means" that would normally happily pay for fights. I expected it to be 25-30% down on fight 2
Not bad considering it was a fight there wasn’t any demand or hype for.
My high quality pirated stream had no commercials
It was the best fight of the 3.
Great fight and drama....
Those numbers means it likely didnt even break even..
Not a shock. Anyone who thought this would do more than the second fight were crazy. Its hard to sell a fight when the previous fight was so conclusive.
I still don't understand why they don't realise that had this fight been in the UK it would have likely done huge numbers and sold out a stadium....
Sold out a stadium?
Based on what?
Why would 60k+ buy tickets for a fight where one fighter is the overwhelming favourite?
So does that make it the most stolen PPV in boxing history? (LOL)
Funny how everyone somehow managed to watch it despite the buy totals.
Still, about a $50 million take in the U.S. alone considering the cost of the PPV was so high.
