Payout Perspective:

PBC went up against NFL Preseason Football and UFC on Fox Saturday night which likely siphoned viewers from finding boxing on Spike TV.  Guererro has an entertaining style which is why he continues to be on television.  But, the 507,000 reflects the fact that there were other options for the casual viewer to watch.

    Nailed it! Word is spreading about PBC. complete mastery. “The Hedge Fund Baby” Al Haymon is a blessing for the SPORT of boxing. All politics aside the man hit it. I will always love Bob and Don but Heyman outdid everybody. But there is a gaping hole I see. It’s a mile wide!

    Guerrero has been fading for a while. He’s still an exciting fighter, but he hasn’t been a winning fighter, and ultimately you need both. Same can be said for Angulo. I was hoping this card would do better, since hardcore boxing fans still know these guys, but there was a lot going on in that same time slot and it looks like PBC lost out.

    The Chivas soccer match did close to 2 million viewers, I wonder if that had an affect on the ratings?

Got something to say?
