There was also said to be 300,000 overseas buys with a large chunk likely coming from the United Kingdom on BT Sport.

Bob Arum may wind up being disappointed with these figures given the fact that he thought it’d do far better than the rematch but either way, there’s a lot to be said for the PPV price of $79.99 and how much that may have thrown fans off the scent of buying it.
