Should Mayweather get back into the ring with one of the Paul brothers or some other random social media star, that number will be the reason why.
I have no problem with Showtime airing this fight. It was an event. Hardcore boxing fans don’t want to hear this, but there was more interest in Mayweather battling a YouTuber than a prizefight between the sport’s top active boxers.
For context, the much-hyped Wilder-Fury II generated between 800,000 and 850,000 buys.
Yep, Mayweather picked up another win.
