Some facts about Canelo's PPV performance:

Canelo will be the youngest A-side fighter in history to generate a seven-figure pay-per-view audience;

This will be the largest Pay-Per-View audience to watch in a boxing match in two years;

Canelo will be the first A-side fighter in 15 years not named De La Hoya, Mayweather or Pacquiao, to draw a million buys.

"These numbers solidify Canelo as the undisputed biggest name in the sport of boxing-simple as that," said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "At 26 years old, there is no limit to Canelo's star power as he continues to cross over to mainstream audiences. Canelo only wants to take on the best and the biggest, and we're confident he will continue to shatter records as boxing's new pay-per-view king."
