GGG Fights on HBO

May 2014 vs. Willie Monroe, Jr. 1.338M viewers (fight only)

November 2013 vs. Curtis Stevens 1.41M viewers (fight only)

July 2104 vs. Daniel Geale 984,000 viewers (overall show drew 758,000)

October 2014 vs. Marco Antonio Rubio 1.3M viewers (fight only)

February 2015 vs. Martin Murray 862,000 viewers (fight only)

Payout Perspective:

It was the second time that Chocolito has appeared as the opening act for GGG on HBO and it appears to be a good formula.  Notwithstanding a poor PPV debut last fall, GGG does well on HBO.  If he does attempt PPV again, one might expect a big-time opponent.

    Solid. And he’s doing the right thing fighting regularly. It’s not his fault the top guys are ducking him. He just needs to do his thing in the ring.

    Excellent numbers, and Canelo is absolutely running scared of him. DLH and Golden Boy dont want to lose their cash cow

    Canelo is not running scared.
    Ggg is knocking out nobodies, gatekeepers, and journey men.

    Funny how GGG loves to throw catchweights to Ward and numerous other boxers but wont budge for Canelo.
    The middleweight division is 155-160lb.

    Also Canelo beats Gennady
