August 21, 2018

Top Rank Boxing on ESPN drew 686,000 Saturday night on the network which improved on the three prior cards on ESPN.

According to Nielsen (via ShowBuzz Daily), the 110 minute event drew 0.20 in the A18-49 demo.  The event saw Bryant Jennings win via 9th round TKO  over Alexander Dimitrenko.  In the opener of the doubleheader, Jesse Hart earned a 3rd round TKO victory over Mike Gavronski.

This summer’s Top Rank Boxing on ESPN Ratings:

August 18 – 686,000 viewers

July 14 – 518,000 viewers

July 7 – 534,000 viewers

June 30 – 632,000 viewers

Payout Perspective:

The ratings are either an anomaly or a sign that boxing fans are getting used to boxing on ESPN.  The ratings are far from what the network has received earlier this year and in 2017 but with the many up and coming fighters that most casual fans do not know, the ratings are pretty good.
