    I'm surprised by these numbers, his exposure must have grown after the Fury fight surely. The fact he has done 400k less than a year ago has to be very worrying for showtime especially when they are paying him $8M more than stiverne 2.

    You can bring up google searches & youtube views etc all you want, thats not paying showtime if it doesn't convert into showtime viewers or buying tickets.

    Hopefully this will increase pressure for an AJ or Fury fight.

    Showtime has been slipping for over s year across the board. Wilder did like 1.2 last year and 790k this year and most their other cards are lucky to do 500-600k.

    The people who were gonna watch the fight, tuned in, the ones who were watching the game, weren't that interested in the fight or they would have been watching.
    Kinda an oversimplification of the mind of a sports fan. Particularly given the closeness of each WCF game and the odds of Wilder winning.

    Looks like Espinosa is going to be getting his P45 soon enough with the money he's needlessly paying Wilder for absolutely no gains.

    This is going to be a bumpy ride for him.
    Time will tell. I tend to think they will be ok.

I think those numbers are a lot better than they seem. Yet premium channels views that are the second highest are still not appreciated by casuals that act like they are hardcores boxing fans on bs smh

    Donít worry your heroes will share the same fate as Breazeale when the fight the fans want starts to consume the casuals interest!
    What, like last time when Fury at 50% beat your hype job and made him look stupid? Then had him making ridiculous excuses that had us all laughing at the fool.

    Don't worry, our "Hero's" will do the job that Wilder and Finkle themselves know they will. But when they're ready of course. People have to be patient remember. They still have some ducking to do to make sure their quacks are finely tuned.

    I would need to study these numbers a little longer based on all the comparable data out there to offer a valuable opinion. So instead I will go back to masturbating...

Showtime lost money on every fight on the Mayweather deal but Cotto and Pac. When asked, they said the Pac fight paid for the entire deal alone. Its called investment, just like DAZN has been doing throwing big money around. Coukd the investment not pan out for Showtime or DAZN...sure, but you have to pay to play.

    Yeah, give me those numbers the likes of you were dishing out not too long ago that you liked to post about so much. Wasn't it something stupid like 16,000 subs?

    Well, that circle-jerk didn't last long did it when the real numbers came out? Delusion gives with one hand, and taketh with the other. Story of life my friend for the insane.

    You guys claim he has fought the best for 40 fights so how come no one is supporting him then .. one must be a lie.
