Manny Pacquiao Pay Per View

Pacquiao vs Margarito Generates 1.15 Million Buys and $64 Million Revenue

Category: Boxing


Although the figures were below Top Rank chairman Bob Arum’s prediction, the recent Pacquiao vs Margarito bout is still a huge success as it has generated at least 1.15 million PPV buys and $64 million revenue according to an announcement today by Mark Taffet, the senior vice president of sports operations and pay-per-view at HBO.

With that result, Manny Pacquiao became the first boxer in history since Mike Tyson to generate at least one million buys for a fight in three consecutive years.

His fight with Oscar dela Hoya in 2008 sold 1.25 million and 1.2 million with Miguel Cotto in 2009.

His March 2010 bout with Joshua Clottey generated only 700,000 buys but it was because Clottey is a virtual unknown.

Even so, Pacquiao’s past five pay-per-view bouts have sold a combined 5.1 million; a “true measure of his pay-per-view superstar status” says Taffet.

The Pacquiao vs Margarito pay-per-view result is the second biggest of the year after the Mayweather vs Mosley bout last May which generated 1.4 million.

The all-time record is still held by the Mayweather vs dela Hoya fight in 2007 which recently surpassed 2.45 million.

If Pacquiao vs Mayweather will ever push through, there’s a good chance that it will break that record.


UPDATE February 1, 2011: Showtime Pay-Per-View will take charge of the Pacquiao vs Mosley fight on May 7, 2011 at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Now, let’s see how this will fare.

    You calling Manny Pacquiao poochyaw? Alagad ka ba ni Mayweather? In fairness to Manny, pinaghirapan nia naman ang pera nia eh. Dugo at pawis, sipag at tiyaga nia un.

    Hindi gaya ng iba jan na paupo-upo lang at papirma-pirma at mga instant millionaires na.
