The exhibition boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul was seemingly a success in the box office.
Mayweather and Paul fought over eight rounds this past weekend in contest that was pretty drab with many surprised there was no knockout win for the former.
Not that they care as both fighters made plenty of bank and it will be even more so the case now that some pay-per-view buy figures are in.
As per BoxingScene, the event drew at least 1 million buys domestically.
“While still early, industry sources are indicating that Showtime is projecting at least 1 million buys (or slightly more) domestically – which includes cable, satellite, and streaming.
“A network source at Showtime confirmed to BoxingScene.com, that Sunday was the biggest single-day of new subscription signups since the launch of Showtime’s streaming service in 2015.
“The numbers are not surprising to industry experts, when factoring in Mayweather’s name value and Paul’s tremendous reach of over 56 million followers across his numerous social media platforms.”
Considering the event was reportedly postponed because of a lack of pay-per-view buys, that is a big win for everyone involved.
