PPV telecast sets all time record
HBO Sports reported today that 2.15 million pay-per-view buys and $120 million in pay-per-view revenue was generated from last Saturday’s mega fight showdown featuring Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The fight was promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in association with MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. In a fight that set the all-time pay-per-view record by eclipsing the previous mark by a sizable margin of 160,000 buys as well as establishing a new mark for revenue from a pay-per-view telecast, Mayweather scored a split decision victory and captured De La Hoya’s junior middleweight title. In the most unreal decision by one of the most contraversal judges in boxing history. The showdown produced 1,225,000 buys from cable systems and 925,000 buys from satellite homes throughout the 50 states.

that's unreal for a non heavy weight fight.

taking a chance on having someone call me a hater let me be the one to point out that Floyd probably got about 250,000 of those maybe 300,000 max in to the tent. what does that tell you boys? ( Shane) the rest was the golden boy!! lets all keep track of Floyd next fight without Oscar and see how close I am.

2.15 million buys is impressive.

I've always been a fan of the lighter weights and it's great that they can garner this kind of attention.

2.15 million is an impressive feat, no doubt. I do think that MMA will eventually surpass that number. It may take a while but I think it will happen :cheeky4:

MMA is half-way there :)

Being that there probably is no other event in boxing this year that can generate this kind of revenue/buys, it's safe to say that MMA will match the numbers by sheer volume ;)

As an MMA fan, I'm glad the prices are cheap so poor folks like me can afford to see events :D

As long as your name isn't Mike Freeman, I won't have to hunt you down for your cheeky digs :cheeky4:

look lets not get crazy here 2.15 mil is allot of folks and untill they charge the same for the fight in mma it will not be a legit argument.

I can't wait till the Floyd gaggers get a hold of my comments about the pay per views!! I look forward messing with these Floyd huggers.

You are totally wrong. It is impossible to say who drew what. I guarantee you the 24/7 series gained TONS of more buys for Mayweather.

Also, if Oscar was fighting ANYONE else it wouldn't have even been close to those numbers. Your statement is impossible and inconclusive.

It doesn't bother me dude. Everyone, including yourself know that without Floyd it might have made 600,000 buys, and I wouldn't have been one of the buyers :)
