Showtime Boxing draws 553,00 viewers for Davis-Nunez fight

July 30, 2019

Showtime Boxing on Saturday night drew 553,000 viewers for the Gervonta Davis-Ricardo Nunez feature on the network.

The event drew 188,000 viewers in the A18-49 demo and a 0.33 share per Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.

Davis KO’d Nunez in the second round in front of a hometown crowd in Baltimore, Maryland.  Davis retained the WBA Super Featherweight World Championship over the promotion’s mandatory challenger.

The event improved greatly over the June 29th Showtime event which drew just 379,000 viewers for the feature bout of Jermall Charlo and Brandon Adams.  May’s Deontay Wilder-Dominic Breazeale fight drew 791,000 viewers.  April’s Robert Easter, Jr. Rances Barthelemy fight garnered 312,000 viewers.

Payout Perspective:

The event on Saturday was a bounce back from June’s Showtime televised event.  The viewership tuned in to watch a Floyd Mayweather, Jr. protégé return to action before a hometown crowd.
