Canelo beats Chavez Jr. in Mexican TV Ratings War, Fights Generate Astounding Numbers
Paul Magno | Sep 17, 2012 | Comments 1
In their first ever head to head TV battle, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez won the ratings war last Saturday against fellow 20-something Mexican star, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
According to Ratings Mexico, Alvarez, who faced Josesito Lopez in defense of his WBC junior middleweight title, had a little over 18.1 million viewers tuned in, translating to a 15.1 rating with a 36.6 share for Televisa
Meanwhile, Chavez Jr., defending his WBC middleweight belt against Sergio Martinez, had about 16.2 million Mexicans watching his fight, registering a 13.5 rating and 34.2 share for TV Azteca.
All together, the numbers mean that about 34.3 million Mexicans watched boxing on the evening of September 15th with an astounding 70.8% of all television viewers in Mexico during that time slot tuned into one of the two bouts. To make the numbers even more amazing, both fights took place during traditional Mexican Independence Day festivities, at a time when large outdoor celebrations are commonplace all over the nation.
The highest rated fight of all time in Mexico remains Juan Manuel Marquez-Manny Pacquiao III, which drew 37.2 million viewers and generated a 31 rating.

Naito-Kameda fight does ridiculous TV ratings in Japan
By Scott Christ on Nov 30, 9:47p
New1129_medium_medium The Sunday fight between Daisuke Naito and Koki Kameda did magnificent TV ratings as expected in Japan, with the fight averaging 43.1% and peaking at 52.1% on TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System).
The fight was billed as the "Japanese Fight of the Century," and not only lived up to it with its insanely impressive TV performance, but lived up to it in the ring, too. It may not have been a Fight of the Year contender or anything, but it was a very intense fight, an impressive boxing display by Kameda, and a valiant effort from Naito.
This once again just goes to show that when you look past the United States, boxing is not just doing well, but it's thriving. It does so for different reasons than when it does well in the United States. Other countries see their boxing stars as sports heroes still, while in the United States, a guy like Floyd Mayweather can possess great skills and even become a crossover mainstream star, but he's still not LeBron James or Adrian Peterson or anything like that. In Denmark, Mikkel Kessler is a genuinely major star. In Japan, Naito, Hasegawa, Kameda -- all major stars. In Australia, guys like Anthony Mundine, Danny Green and Daniel Geale do great business. In the UK, several boxers have very dedicated followings, from Ricky Hatton to Carl Froch and on down the line. Germany regularly has massive crowds for guys like Felix Sturm, Arthur Abraham, and so on, and Sturm rarely even fights what many consider to be a legit challenge. Canada has become a hotbed with guys like Lucian Bute, Jean Pascal, Adrian Diaconu and Steve Molitor, and Molitor is the only one even born in Canada.
It's a different game in other countries, and I always find it interesting to watch international fights and witness just how different it is, in terms of presentation, intensity in the crowd, atmosphere, etc.
Simply put, the eyes on Naito-Kameda blow away the eyes in the States that watched Cotto-Pacquiao or Mayweather-Marquez, the two biggest shows of the year on American soil.
