Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s final (supposedly) fight inside the ring against Andre Berto did not blow many people away. For one, it was a one-sided show on Floyd’s side. He just went through the motions, making Berto miss and coasted to a decision win. But another reason is that people just didn’t watch it.
Mayweahter’s final fight brought in around 500,000 PPV buys. That’s the lowest amount of PPV buys for a Mayweather fight in the last ten years.
Of course UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was approached and asked about the disappointing numbers by TMZ Sports and she didn’t necessarily slam Mayweather, but did say that fans aren’t dumb and she isn’t surprised it did so poorly, especially considering how many fans he angered with the Pacquiao fight.
Here’s what she had to say:
“I’m not surprised. A lot of people were pissed after the Pacquiao fight, so…..Fans aren’t dumb.”
Rousey will look to break some attendance records at her next fight, at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia, when she takes on undefeated fighter Holly Holm on Nov. 14.
