    Only in boxing can Wilder get more viewers than Canelo for around the same price but it's considered a failure.
    Canelo is on an App that is still growing. If he was on Showtime for free, how many viewers would he get?

    However, I do like witnessing the likes of you trying to polish a turd.

    When do you bring the sprinkles out? Haha.

    But it is funny that they're paying Wilder much more money when his viewing numbers and tickets sales are down. Good, they deserve it. If they want to pretend Wilder is a star and lose money to a moron who is beyond delusional at this point then they have no one to blame but themselves. They created this Frankenstein monster and his out of control ego, so they can deal with it.
    Wilder going to kill Showtime. They aren't going to continue to pay money like that. They'll be saying goodbye to boxing.

    But he's growing in popularity. Haha. Only in your minds. Facts speak like they always do. Which is why people like you have egg on your faces. But you lot should be used to it by now.
    Internet searches are a much better gauge of broad popularity/interest than viewership, especially on a premium cable network. Look at Google searches through Google Trends. As I documented above, Wilder this week is outperforming any boxer over the past four years in US searches. And he is at 12x what AJ has ever reached in the US.

    Wilder is NOT the biggest boxing star in the world. He is behind Canelo, AJ and Pacquiao. But he is trending up. He's must see TV and the general sports audience is catching on.

    Decent. Could/should be better given that there was SO much hype around the KO. I think 1 million watched it live, and about 20 million saw the KO when it went viral after. I know people who don't even watch boxing who saw the KO. One guy even said, "Did you see Fury KO that dude?!"

    I think Wilder has built up some hype around himself but it's not going to pay off in these small fights. The big 3 are really going to rely on each other in order to get the BIG numbers.

    Why, do people usually tune in when it's halfway through the fight?

    That's smashing that is.

    Fans don't root against their own sport they calm to love. Boxing has its issues across the board and reading this forum you see exactly why this sport continues to fall behind MMA and other sports

    Strong Numbers for Showtime, I'm sure they're extremely happy with their "Little Ratings" given that their #1 Original Programming don't even peak that high.

    I Swear some of you was just praising 600K Views for Canelo vs Jacobs in the US alone which was suppose to be a BIG FIGHT! You also had Some Wilder fans saying 600K wasn't good so you're all a Bunch of WEIRDOS! Lets see what AJ vs Ruiz numbers look like here in a couple of weeks if they even release them. Remember the standard you have set and be Men enough to not double back off of those standards after you laughed at 900+K views Peak

    Mayweather and Pacquiao ERA has created some of the dumbest fans this sport has ever seen and I'm not even joking!

    Yeah, but that's in the middle of the day over there so they're actually good numbers. But Wilder is the Yank who can't even get the same amount of people watching him for free that AJ does at home on PPV making shlt tones of cash. Haha.

    Now kiss my noodle.

    Growing into what exactly? People not buying tickets or PPV? Oh, that sounds really great for Deontay. If he got nothing yesterday, it will grow into nothing today.

    Reach for stars, yeah. Haha.

    Whats wrong with you, Sid?
    You can obviously see that Wilder has been building
    momentum and creating a lot of buzz, especially his latest
    knockout, but you insist on denying it. Why is it so hard
    for you to accept reality? You can still be a Joshua fan,
    and nobody says you must appreciate Wilder, but you can't
    bury your head in the sand and pretend Wilder is not
    increasing his profile. He was the highest ranked boxer on
    ESPN's recent list of trending athletes, he just won an
    Emmy award, and his recent knockout of Breazeale was the
    kind of highlight-reel stuff that attracts casual fans to the
    sport. You will deny it, but I guarantee that you would be
    among Wilder's biggest fans if he had been born a Brit.
