|Bernard Hopkins vs Chad Dawson PPV Numbers
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (Oct 27, 2011) Doghouse Boxing
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - So how did Bernard Hopkins vs. Chad Dawson do in terms of Pay-per-view
sales? Probably not very good at all. According to two boxing scribes,
the numbers they are hearing indicate a bomb, and a stink bomb at that!
Dan Rafael of ESPN tweeted that he has heard the numbers for the PPV buy
rate for Hopkins vs. Dawson are well below 100,000. Let's face it,
100k is a terrible number to begin with... but well below 100k!
Kevin Iole of Yahoo tweeted that he heard the fight did around 40,000 buys.
40,000 PPV Buys! If any of these numbers pan out to be true, this was
one massive failure. It time for the PPV heads to start rethinking how
they sell and package boxing.

"Making Dawson - Hopkins II would be like making a sequel to 'Ishtar'."
But seriously, who's idea was it to put Hopkins vs Dawson on PPV?! (And what were they smoking?!)
