    I bought it but when will folks realize that hardcore fans don't contribute to PPV buys?

    And 600k was just the TV estimate which may be correct. The million or more is including streaming purchases.

    Doubt we will ever know the real numbers. Seems like real PPV numbers are getting harder to tally as of late. At $50 a pop, and networks, cable companies and internet providers getting more than half the take, it is not nearly as lucrative as the 3 million plus buys they first anticipated. Floyd told TMZ he would make over a $100 million on his fight. Nope!

    Anyone know the live gate? Attendance looked abysmal.

    No it isn't. Its true. Would he have sold that many ppvs fighting anyone else? No. You morons act like everything he touches turns to gold. Did they even reveal the real number for the guerrero fight? He piggybacks off guys with big fanbases. If he was the great draw you people hype him up to be how come the berto fight didn't even draw 500k? Lol idiots
    I don’t hype anything up. You’re just sensitive and butt hurt for whatever reason. The facts speak for themselves, he’s literally sold
    more ppvs than any other boxer in history. He was a part of 4 of the 5 highest ppv boxing events ever and 5 of the top 10. He was the A side for 4 of those 5 fights. You think that’s just because of who he fought and not because of him? Clown. As far as needing a strong B side, who hasn’t? Has mcgregor sold more numbers with anyone else than he did with Floyd? Has canelo sold more vs anyone than he did vs Floyd? How about Cotto? How about Pac? Did Ali generate the same interest for his fights vs joe bugner and Ron Lyle as he did against Frazier and Foreman? Did sugar Ray Leonard get the same interest fighting Donny lelonde or Kevin Howard as he did against hearns and hagler? Did Tyson vs Botha or seldon generate the same numbers as Tyson vs Holyfield or Lewis? I can make the same argument for every other star ever. Either you’re a dummy or you just don’t really follow boxing like that.

    In fairness, 1M gullible fanatics does exist. Floyd’s marketing ploy still works even at this stage
