    Those are great numbers in the middle of day. There are boxing cards who would kill to have those numbers in prime time. The Charlo bro’s did a stacked PPV a few weeks ago in primetime and they didn’t even come close to this.

    your also comparing two guys new to PPV to one of the biggest UFC stars in the world.

    Like.

    Like if Fury-Wilder had done 500k instead of 1million+ than it would be a better comp

    i think the single biggest factor was the time of day.

    i knew people "so excited for the fight tonight!" hours after it was over.
