    Don't feed the trolls (you made me look at who you referred to)

    Just focus on those that add to conversations

    Yeah I did read Showtime was going all out on pirates for this like getting injunction to block the sites from streaming before hand. There will be a lot of pirating but I can see a lot of streams not being able to handle the traffic.

    The fight being accessible is a huge thing. You can watch this on your phone. People forget the numbers that Tyson use to pull back in the late 90's were amazing for the time. Tyson pulling 1.6 million in the mid 90's was crazy high. These were the primative cable days of calling on the phone.

    I'd put the interest in this fight as about the same as MayPac
    Gate record & betting prove that

    but the variables are what will break the record or not

    Actually, in boxing the real numbers get released.

    & Meltzer also has a 30 year history of PPV numbers
    When WWE went public, his numbers matched (usually 5-10%)
    That is why he is the go to on these things.
    He is also the only person who got the actual UFC financials & breakdown of how much they pay/make
    But you know how SD is ;)

    The numbers are being shattered. Only complete dorky haters think this isn't going to break the record.

    100%. Like you said, Meltzer has a long running reputation for accuracy and the actual WWE numbers prove it, plus that doesn't even matter because it's already known that boxing always releases the real numbers. It's funny how people will spout off like they're an authority on something when it can be easily proven that they don't know what the hell they're talking about.

    I am thinking around 3 million, give or take a little. I don't think it gets close to 4.6 million of Floyd vs Manny. I reckon around 3 million which is still amazing and great I think.

    Oh & a funny addition

    If you remember the early numbers Showtime said (for MayPac) were nowhere near 4.6m
    They were about a million lower
    Meltzer said he heard it was higher
    Showtime then released the final numbers of 4.6m

    ;)
