White states The Money Fight drew 6.5 million buys

August 31, 2017

6.5 million buys.  This is the amount that Dana White state’s this past Saturday’s Mayweather-McGregor bout.

White stated this while talking to Urijah Faber and Snoop Dogg on Tuesday.  The amount is thought to be a worldwide total and not just limited to North America.  No official announcement had been made by Showtime or Zuffa.

The Los Angeles Times indicated that it should surpass the record 4.6 million buys by Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in 2015 although it was too early to tell.

Payout Perspective:

All signs point to this fight breaking the record.  The Prelims on Fox, which did not have any boxer of note, peaked at 3.1 million viewers and averaged 2.438M viewers.  There were over 10 million searches for “MayweatherVsMcgregor Fight” and “Mayweather” on Saturday night which would suggest that this fight was widely sought after.  6.5 million seems like a worldwide number which would directly correlate with a lofty number of those coming from Europe and Ireland.  The official estimates are said to come out later today.

    Reports coming out now saying 4 million. Not surprised Dana said 6

    Not true. Meltzer said between 4.5-5m in North America. In the UK, the fight was massive as well. Combined it was probably over 6m. This likely beat May-Pac.

    Hahahahaha. Lot’s of people also saw a guy who had zero professional boxing matches take the alleged best ever into the 10th rd landing 111 punches.

    If Mayweather were in his prime and attempted to fight in the Octagon, he wouldn’t land a punch and he’d be unconscious in less than a minute. Haha.

    Fight wasn’t in an octagon cause mayweather is the a side lmao. He doesn’t need the cage like McTapper needed that payday cause he never got it in the ufc.

    More like the fight wasn’t in the Octagon, because Floyd would never in a million years fight in the cage. McGregor will fight anyone anywhere.

    Mayweather looked like he didn’t even try.
    Where was this so called power that Conor has?
    Didn’t exist. Floyd couldve put him out in the 1st round, need be.

    Floyd could not have put him out in the first rd. If he tried to do that, he could have been ko’d. McGregor surprised Mayweather, he even admitted afterwards he was much tougher than he thought Conor would be. Floyd did not expect to get hit like that.

    If they fought in mma, McGregor would have had Mayweather ko’d in the first minute of the fight.

Got something to say?
