Drake Riggs - December 12, 2017

There are very few combat sports athletes on the planet that are just as special as world boxing champion, Vasyl Lomachenko. And the public eye is starting to take notice. Reports have come in from Nielsen stating that the ESPN boxing event headlined by Lomachenko vs Guillermo Rigondeaux did twice as many numbers as the UFC Fight Night 123 event in Fresno, California headlined by Cub Swanson vs Brian Ortega. Getting to specifics, the Top Rank event between Lomachenko and Rigondeaux brought in 1.73 million viewers, with UFC Fight Night 123 bringing in 870,000. Both surpassed the HBO boxing event where Miguel Roman defeated Orlando Salido which only did 576,000. Top Rank President Todd DuBoef was happy with the news: “We’re thrilled with our relationship with ESPN and what it’s meant to bring boxing to a broader fan base,” DuBoef said. “We’re not on an island [on HBO/Showtime] anymore. It’s resonating, and we’re proud.”
