By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - I am starting to think the Pay-per-view numbers for last month's battle
between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Victor Ortiz might never be released.
My guess is the numbers aren't as great as they anticipated. C'mon, HBO! What's the hold up!?
In a recent column by Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, regarding the PPV
numbers for Mayweather vs Ortiz, Iole writes: "No pay-per-view numbers have
been announced for the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Victor Ortiz fight, which
was held Sept. 17. HBO’s Mark Taffet deferred all questions to the
promoters, who have yet to address the issue. The reason is simple:
Mayweather-Ortiz didn’t sell as well as promoters (particularly
Mayweather) had hoped. They’re waiting as long as possible in an effort
to get the figure as high as possible. Multiple sources said Saturday
that the fight did more than 1 million but less than the 1.3 million
that May’s fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley did. If it hits
that number, then, and only then, will it be released, I’d guess."
Steve Kim of Max Boxing recently wrote:
"I mentioned last week on Twitter that someone told me they had heard
the “Star Power” pay-per-view on September 17thfeaturing
Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz did around 850,000 buys and it seems to
have caused quite a stir for some reason. Again, folks, comprehending
what you read is vital and stuff like this should be taken with a grain
Will the PPV numbers ever make the day of light? Your guess, (like guessing the PPV numbers) is as good as mine.
