PBC on FS1 Saturday night averaged 159,000 viewers and an additional 74,000 viewers on Fox Deportes per Nielsen.

The FS1 telecast peaked from 12:15 am-12:30am with 198,000 viewers.  Notably, this was prior to the main event in Las Vegas featuring Canelo Alvarez and Sergey Kovalev as DAZN paused their event to await the finish of the UFC feature fight between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal.

Also airing Saturday night were PBC studio specials promoting the upcoming Deontay Wilder-Luis Ortiz fight.  The Fox PBC Face-to-Face averaged 590,000 viewers from 12:21am-12:51am and PBC’s Fight Camp averaged 365,000 viewers from 12:51am-1:21am.

The telecast featured Brian Castano as he defeated Wale Omotoso in a battle between super welterweights.  Castano earned the victory.

Payout Perspective:

There was a lot of boxing on Saturday night including PBC on FS1, Top Rank on ESPN and the DAZN card featuring Canelo.  Not to mention the UFC card which sparked controversy for DAZN’s decision to wait for the card to end to begin the main event.  While the PBC ratings on Saturday was comparatively low, there is still general interest in the buildup for the Wilder-Ortiz fight.
