Huge boxing fan but they've lost the PPV market, prices are higher than UFC and the under cards are usually watered down to shit.
looks like boxing could use mighty mouse
and crawford still made at least $1.3 mill
Boxing is an incredibly boring sport with incredibly boring matchups. Even Canelo doesn't ordinarily get good numbers.
And how much is getting invested back into the sport?
His purse is great for him, but it isn't doing anything for the fans or the company that has to pay him. There's a reason why the networks downsized their boxing budget. The sport's doing terribly bad.
too bad because crawford might be the best boxer boxing has today, his amateur record is amazing
Useless stat. Boxing PPV success is based on the matchup. Will any UFC ever match paq vs mayweather at 4.4 million buys?
Canelo vs. Golovkin will do 2 milion buys easy.
Weird how this got posted in the UFC forum.
Mayweather vs Pacquaio is an outlier. UFC consistently does better than boxing PPV's, which is the important thing.
too bad canelo vs golovkin and ward vs kovalev will never happen because boxing full of "smart" pussies
ye thats what dana is doing with TJs money lol
Apparently. The UFC is growing and expanding into other territories and constantly signing new deals. But, by all means, focus on TJ's and Crawdford's pockets instead of caring about good matchups.
2 different markets--2 different ways of promoting. UFC sells an entire show with multiple fights. Boxing is always about one main event. People don't know Crawford yet, but they will eventually. That dude is absolute brilliance in the ring.
Promoter likely lost money on that card. Unless there was a substantial live gate. That's not good business.
Mayweather wasn't box office until he fought Oscar. Crawford just needs the same kind of push. They are talking a possible fight with Pacquiao.
Pacquaio doesn't draw anymore, either, especially not against a no-name.
