PPV Projection - Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios

Pacquiao vs. Rios
Just my personal opinion but I think Pacquiao-Rios does in the range between 600-650,000 pay-per-view buys. Perhaps I'm underestimating just how strong the Pacquiao brand still is, the effect of ESPN's multi-platform participation in this event and the intrigue of just how the “Pac-Man” returns in the wake of his devastating knockout at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez.

But is the third major pay-per-view event since September and I'm sensing some wallets are getting thinner heading into the holiday season.

Also, it seems like pay-per-view events are now permanently past the $60 threshold and Top Rank didn't do themselves any favors with a rather tepid undercard (although anytime Felix Verdejo fights, I'm interested).

So being in Macao, will this play in Peoria?
