Canelo-GGG II draws approximately 1.1M PPV buys

September 25, 2018

Canelo-GGG II on September 15th drew approximately 1.1 million PPV buys per a report by ESPN which probed multiple industry sources regarding the buy rate.  The report would mean that the rematch fell short of the original fight between the two.

With a suggested retail price of $84.95, the event generated at least $94 million in the United States for the HBO PPV telecast.  The first fight between the two drew 1.3 million buys.  The rematch generated more revenue since the price point was higher.

Golden Boy, the promoters for the event, stated they would not release its official buy rate information but indicated between the gate, PPV buys and digital sales, it did better than their first bout.  The live gate at the T-Mobile Arena drew 423,473,500 from the sale of 16,732 tickets.

Payout Perspective:

The ESPN report notes that streaming PPV increased since the last fight so that may attribute to the low PPV rate.  Regardless of being 1.1 or 1.3, the fight produced and will likely garner a trilogy.
