I thought it was a solid fight, and entertaining card altogether, but I’m sure a card with Tim Bradley as a headline will ever do serious pay per view numbers.
Bob Arum is a boxing realist — so he had no problem revealing that the numbers for Pacquiao vs. Bradley 3 were underwhelming to say the least.
Nothing official yet but Arum told me today he expects #PacBradley PPV to be between 400k and 500k. He termed that "not good." #boxing

If Manny Pacquiao truly is retiring — he’s walking away at the right time.
The finale in a controversial trilogy, did no better than Mayweather’s win over Andre Berto — which had 550,000 buys. Add in the comments on gay marriage, and it was probably Manny’s last $20 million plus purse anyway — short of a rematch with Floyd.
