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;

"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."
