Fonfara-Smith PBC on NBC Sees Increase With 1.32M Rating

By Carlos Boogs

According to Television By Numbers, Saturday's Premier Boxing Champions televised card on NBC drew an overnight rating of 1.32 million viewers. 

This edition of PBC on NBC, which began at 8:30PM EST and ran until 11:00PM, saw heavy underdog Joe Smith Jr. make a big statement in the light heavyweight division with a shocking first round knockout of highly ranked Andrzej Fonfara.

The show generated a 0.3 rating among the 18-49 adult demographic.

The recent edition of PBC on NBC had a ratings increase from the show in April, which saw an overnight ratings figure of 1.24 million.  The card showcased rising welterweight star Errol Spence, who demolished former world champion Chris Algieri in five rounds at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The card also has Krzysztof Glowacki retaining his cruiserweight world title against Steve Cunningham. That particular card also ran from 8:30-11:00PM EST and grabbed a 0.3 rating among in the 18-49 adult market.

The numbers are still a far away from the ratings generated by some of the bigger names in the PBC stable. PBC's debut card featuring Keith Thurman's 12-round win over Robert Guerrero saw 3.2 million viewers and peaked at 4 million, and Danny Garcia's win over Lamont Peterson last April drew an average of 2.9 million viewers, peaking at 3.4 million.
