Pacquiao vs. Rios Does Under 500K PPV Buys



These are terrible numbers.

Marquez vs. Bradley almost did as many and even though Mayweather vs. Guerrero didn’t crack a million it was over 900k. Then of course Mayweather vs. Canelo did 2.2 million.

Pacquiao simply isn’t a huge PPV draw anymore unless he fights Marquez or Mayweather. Anyone else at this point will produce these type of numbers.

Bob Arum being the smart promoter he is got the Chinese to pay him a bunch of money up front, so at least from his perspective he made money, don’t know about anyone else.
