    • Paul’s next fight hasn’t been announced, though he’s expressed interest in facing UFC star Jorge Masvidal or Tommy Fury.
    • Paul’s fight against Ben Askren earlier this year reportedly topped 1 million pay-per-view buys.
    • The numbers for the recent event headlined by Jake Paul and former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley are still being tallied, but the card will ultimately end up with approximately 500,000 pay-per-view buys, according to a recent report.

    That is some step diminishing returns. From 1 million PPV against a Pillsbury doughboy looking Ben Askren to half of that against a former UFC champ. How long will this novelty freakshow fights continue before it's no longer profitable to pay those extremely high purses?

    That's equivalent to 3 million UFC buys with the pay distribution

    Remember Ben Askren's hilarious rocky montage? Ben had a lot to do with their event hitting 1M, he promoted the fight even more than Paul did.

    Surprisingly low for what was supposed to be Paul's "biggest test" so far.

    500k buys in a promotion where they dont steal as much,in ufc you'd need 1m + buys to make what they made with 500

    A bit surprising since it seemed there was some interest in it. All right. Raise your hands you nasty streamers!

    Not to bad, he'll probably take Fury next cause of his name value and boxing fans will most likely pay up, since Dana is probably unwilling to lend Jorge even if he co-promoted it which wouldn't be that much of a difficult task to do. I could imagine the Silva fight would be around the 500k margin too, if he took that option which is probably the last one he'd wanna do, not many people wanna pay up to see a young gun fight an older dude, espicially if he doesn't have much of a record going for him too, then again supposedly the askren fight did good, which is a complete shocker to me, despite the fact that they wanna crack down on piracy so badly after that fight so obviously I have my justified reasons to believe it didnt do that good.

    Probably explains why Jake not wanting to do a rematch with Woodley

    500,000k is not bad though, $59.00 a pop, to watch a Disney boxer vs a Ex UFC champ.

    He is related to heavyweight champion Tyson fury. It's either his brother or his cousin. He is still pretty new in the pros too.
