Big ratings: The 405,000 pay-per-view buys generated from last Saturday's light heayvweight showdown between Antonio Tarver and Roy Jones Jr. ranks second among all pay-per-view boxing events in 2005, behind the 510,000 buys for the May 14 Winky Wright-Felix Trinidad fight.

The Oct. 8 bout was on pay-per-view, but did only 225,000 buys. Though arena ticket sales at the Thomas & Mack Center were excellent, the pay-per-view numbers were disappointing, so the rubber match will be on Showtime.

Holyfield considering retirement
By Dan Rafael

Although many have cried for Evander Holyfield to retire since his ninth-round TKO loss to James Toney on Oct. 4, the ex-four-time heavyweight champ hasn't made a definitive decision about his career. [...]

And despite Showtime putting on one of its best pay-per-view telecasts, the losses on Holyfield-Toney were substantial. Showtime lost more than $ 2 million on the show, a commercial bomb with about 150,000 buys. Losses were so heavy that in order to balance its budget, Showtime got Holyfield to agree to a deferred payment in January of about $ 2 million of his $ 5 million purse.

Thomas didn't want to talk about that but offered, "Hypothetically, you can see how a company at the end of its calendar-year budget would want to time payments a bit. Almost anything Showtime would ask of us, if it was in our power, we would do. They've been very good to us over the years, and we would welcome an opportunity to reciprocate."

There is no such depth in the heavyweight division. Although Mike Tyson quit on his stool against Kevin McBride, his recent PPV performance (200,000 buys) was surprisingly solid.

[...]

In terms of buys, how will Mayweather-Gatti (it will cost you $44.95) compare to HBO's three '05 offerings (Erik Morales/Manny Pacquiao - 350,000 buys; Marco Antonio Barrera/Mzonke Fana - 75,000 buys; Winky Wright/Trinidad - 510,000 buys)?

Just wondering how some low level PPV's did.

While the Aug. 7 Shannon Briggs-Francois Botha pay-per-view fight was entertaining, it failed to single out a clear-cut opponent for former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson's proposed December PPV return. The action-packed fight, whic ended in a majority draw, attracted about 45,000 PPV buys, distributor Showtime Event Television said.'

Oscar now at 642 million in sales, Tyson second with 545 million

Jeez, 17 out of the top 25 feature ODLH or Tyson. Add in Holyfield, whose future career can be measured in weeks, and you get 21 of 25. Only two of the top 25 features a fighter arguably in his prime right now.

A pretty vivid illustration of the fact that boxing is not creating stars that can draw or sell.

Mayweather vs. Hatton did 850.000 PPV buys in the US.

I heard Margarito vs. Cotto did around 470.000

Pacquiao vs. Diaz did 350.000.

Wasn't it Vazquez-Marquez 3 that did 440.000?
I believe it was a new record for a fight below lightweight.

From: http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/boxing/news/story?id=3158134

"The numbers are in, and pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather lived up to his new self-given nickname of "Money" Mayweather.

Mayweather's 10th-round knockout of England's Ricky Hatton to retain the welterweight championship Dec. 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas generated a whopping 850,000 domestic pay-per-view buys and $47 million in television revenue, HBO PPV's Mark Taffet said Monday.

That makes the fight the biggest pay-per-view fight in history that did not involve Oscar De La Hoya or heavyweights Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield."

Cotto-Mosley PPV numbers according to Bob Arum.

"last Novemberís Cotto-Shane Mosley fight, which did about 350,000 buys."

This wasn't a PPV fight according to ESPN:

"We got the first three at no extra charge. If they could produce a modest 150,000 pay-per-view buys at $45 a pop, that's a gross of $6.75 million. Even after everyone else involved gets paid, Vazquez and Marquez can take home the seven-figure purses they deserve."

Sorry, must have confused it with Pacquiao-Marquez 2, which did 400,000 -
http://boxing.about.com/b/2008/03/28/pacquiao-marquez-sets-ppv-record.htm

I am sure there was one fight recently which did 440,000 though.
Will have to check.


Here are some more PPV numbers:

Barrera vs. Marquez - 225,000
Barrera - Juarez 2 - 165,000
Barrera vs. Hamed - 310,000

All figures from this article by Dan Rafael - http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/boxing/news/story?id=2810845

Notice it says Barrera-Morales 2 and 3 sold 296,000 and 310,000 respectively.
Those numbers differ from the ones Mike has listed.

Jones vs. Trinidad did "more than 500,000" according to this article (I recall 510,000 mentioned as an exact figure somewhere).

The article also states that Jones vs. Ruiz did 604,000.

HBO Sports has announced that De La Hoya vs. Pacquiao did 1.25 million PPV buys in the US, generating a revenue of 70 million dollars.

Not bad considering the current state of the economy and the fact that everybody knows the PPV fights are always re-run on regular HBO seven days later.

They also made a nice amount of money from foreign TV-rights as well.
DLH vs. Pac was broadcast in 130 countries.

Anyone know what the last 5 closed-circut fights were and the first 5 pay per view fights were?
It would be interesting to see which year they overlap.
I dont think anything can beat the atmosphere of going downtown to see a big fight live at the movie house on a 18 x 20 foot screen,
unless your at the real fight event of course.
