Lomachenko-Walters HBO Broadcast Averaged 761,000 Viewers

By Keith Idec

Television ratings were about as disappointing as the Vasyl Lomachenko-Nicholas Walters fight itself Saturday night.

According to Nielsen Media Research, the Lomachenko-Walters portion of HBO’s “World Championship Boxing” doubleheader averaged 761,000 viewers. Ukraine’s Lomachenko (7-1, 5 KOs) dominated Jamaica’s Walters (26-1-1, 21 KOs) before Walters quit following the seventh round of their scheduled 12-rounder for Lomanchenko’s WBO world super featherweight title at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.

Television ratings typically dip during Thanksgiving weekend, but the Lomachenko-Walters fight starting just before midnight ET probably didn’t help keep viewers, either.

The replay of the Andre Ward-Sergey Kovalev light heavyweight title fight, which preceded the live airing of Lomachenko-Walters, peaked at 834,000 viewers. The Ward-Kovalev fight, a very competitive bout Ward won by unanimous decision November 19 in Las Vegas, reportedly drew just over 160,000 pay-per-view buys.

The lead-in to this “World Championship Boxing” doubleheader, which began at 10:35 p.m. ET with the Ward-Kovalev replay, was “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” That movie drew an average of 2.33 million viewers.

"If you picked sides between HBO/Showtime feud, if you picked a side between any Promoters who have a feud going on.. you simply are not a Boxing fan."
