    Jack Paul is coming for Floyd Mayweather and Mike Tyson. What a time to be alive.

    When is he going to challenge someone in his own weight class? He's a 6'+, 191 lb guy who seems to only want to fight 155 & 170 lb guys that aren't actually boxers.

    Fake news...if 2 PPVs are tied for 10th place, that means it's the TOP 11 PPVs of all time.

    I don't think race is a factor, the vast majority of the guys on that list are black.

    jake paul vs floyd would be huge. big size difference though, would a commission sanction it ? i suppose with that type of money no one would care.

    come on now. i mean the fact that the paul's are even famous is due to that in a large part.

    the others on the list are up there DESPITE their race. not because of.

    What’s funny is how quick he has the Ppv buys. When it’s UFC or other events takes weeks to get the numbers

    Millions? How cute.

    • September 15, 1978: Muhammad Ali vs. Leon Spinks II
      Estimated audience — 2 billion
    • October 2, 1980: Muhammad Ali vs. Larry Holmes: The Last Hurrah
      Estimated audience — 2 billion
    • June 26, 1976: Muhammad Ali vs. Antonio Inoki
      Estimated audience — 1.4 billion
    • October 30, 1974: Muhammad Ali vs. George Foreman: The Rumble in the Jungle
      Estimated audience — 1 billion
    • October 1, 1975: Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier III: Thrilla in Manila
      Estimated audience — 1 billion

    Maybe the UFC and boxing should abandon the PPV model in favor of broadcasting it for free to a much larger audience and making money from advertisers wanting to reach all those eyeballs. A typical 3 hour UFC broadcast contains only 50-55 minutes of fight time on average. That leaves plenty of time for commercials.

    Cmon there isn't exact numbers? Seems like it wouldn't be hard to calculate that these days.
