Chavez-Martinez: 475K PPV Buys, $25 Million in Revenue
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

HBO has reported that Sergio Martinez vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. generated 475,000 pay-per-view buys and close to $25 million dollars in revenue. HBO, who projected a buyrate of 250,000, saw that same number come from satellite customers alone. As more of the figures are collected, HBO expects the current buyrate number to rise.

The sold-out event, with over 19,000 people in the venue, took place at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, and saw Martinez (50-2-2, 28 KOs) dominate Chavez (46-1-1, 32 KOs) for eleven rounds - and then the drama broke out when Chavez dropped and badly hurt Martinez in the twelfth. The Argentine star survived to secure a unanimous decision, and the WBC middleweight title, with scores of 118-109, 118-109 and 117-110.

[QUOTE=2501]Boxing's popularity has definitely declined and anyone continuing to deny that is just being delusional. We have less boxers known to the general public and less PPVS being purchased from different fighters. ****, we even have less PPVS in general. Boxing is not the mainstream sport i...

[QUOTE=IMDAZED]Boxing's popularity has declined? Not at all. The irony is that boxing is always in the news as having declined. Nothing has changed from 2006 to now in terms of boxing's popularity--in fact, one could argue that there's been a slight uptick as UFC has faded some and fighters who w...
