Mayweather Canelo

I have been at fights where the Mexican population has come out heavy, but it was nothing like what I saw in Vegas for Mayweather and Canelo.

I am claiming part Mexican now, because I met so many and learned so much Spanish. In Mexico, almost every household was watching the fight. Here is the info from Boxing Scene.

Nearly 8-out-of-10 households in Mexico with a television set tuned into last Saturday’s “THE ONE: Mayweather vs. Canelo” mega-fight live on Televisa’s Channel 5. The 12-round majority decision fight, which Mayweather won, garnered a national rating of 41.1 points, which equates to a 77 percent share, 22.1 million viewers and 5.9 million television households, making it the highest-rated boxing program ever on television in Mexico. The telecast peaked with a National rating of 42 points (78.4 percent share/22.6 million viewers6 million television households) and the total program average from 8:00 p.m. CT to 12:30 a.m. CT was 30.1 points (16.2 million viewers/4.3 million television households).
