Top Rank Boxing draws 471,000 on Saturday night

August 21, 2019

Top Rank Boxing on ESPN drew 471,000 viewers Saturday night according to Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.  The event featured Emmanuel Navarette as he defeated Francisco De Vaca via TKO in the feature bout of the telecast.

The event drew 162,000 viewers in the A18-49 demo and a 0.32 share overall.

The UFC Prelims was the de facto lead-in once again for the event prior to the UFC 241 PPV.  The prelims drew 817,000 viewers.

Payout Perspective:

There was a substantial drop off in viewers from the UFC viewership to the Top Rank telecast.  This may be attributed to viewers tuning into the PPV instead of the telecast.  Its notable that this past weekend in 2018, Top Rank Boxing on ESPN drew 686,000 viewers for a heavyweight fight between Bryant Jennings and Alexander Dimitrenko.
