I'm not an expert on how Top Rank/HBO are structured or the specifics of US law so I could be wrong. But I don't think it's illegal, pretty sure the UFC have done it for years.
that would be IRS. it's not really wise to exaggerate ppv numbers if IRS is listening. you don't want that agency to think you're cheating when you file your taxes because you gave out a misleading information to the media.
