    Spence-Garcia was targeted as a pay-per-view event since it gained traction this summer as a realistic possibility. Showtime was expected to distribute it, but FOX has acquired those rights as part of its new deal with Al Haymon’s PBC.

    Showtime has televised each of Spence’s past three bouts. Haymon has assured FOX executives, however, that the best boxers he represents will fight on FOX or FOX Pay-Per-View in some instances.

    What are the numbers required to make a ppv viable?

    I thought this was Danny Garcia and got all excited, before clicking and remembering that we're just talking about Mikey Garcia's pointless execution.

    wheres the idiot who made a thread about mikey garcia ducking people.

    I cant wait for this fight. I think spence should be favored but garcia is no punk. He will bring it and it will be an entertaining fight

    I mean, Team Garcia made it pretty clear that they didn't want the Lomachenko fight anytime soon. At the earliest a year from now and even that's a maybe. I also never accused him of ducking even though I do believe he's stalling at the least with what his brother/trainer said. There's a long list of opponents Mikey could've fought over the years so it isn't like he has no track record of big fights that never happened for some reason or another.

    Depends on the promoter.

    I just saw an article saying that the UFC has been able to negotiate the percentage of PPV revenue that goes to the cable/satellite/streaming providers down from 50 to 30. That means that they're still turning a profit on some of the low selling cards that we've seen recently despite the fact that the floor for PPV buys is much lower than it used to be.

    I imagine that the industry standard of a 50/50 split still applies to promoters who don't run nearly as many PPV cards as the UFC does.

    If you think this is not PPV worthy how are you considering yourself a boxing fan?

    Subjectively this is an attractive fight but on paper, this is a no win fight for Spence, theres nothing at stake other than Spence’s belt and Garcia’s only accomplishments above 135 are winning a 140lb belt and a Broner win

    The large majority here are predicting a beatdown from Spence which already isnt indicating a good sell

    Why do you think this is a good PPV?

    i honestly have no interests in belts only the skills and entertainment now. As vile as the mayweather mcgregor shit was, i watched it for entertainment value. You are right about your evaluation for this matchup, but garcia is a smart fighter and from a boxing fan perspective Im interested to see how it plays out.

    The Bellew/Usyk fight went the same way, but no boxing fan can say they didnt respect Bellews efforts before being KO'd

    I didn't even see it. Damn, Bellew got floored? Wow, I had a feeling it would go that way.

    Mikey has balls, he is A level, and he has world class help on his side.

    I don't think he beats Spence, and I think Spence will look visibly bigger come fight night. I give the fight to Free Smoke, but anything can happen.
