Floyd Mayweather X Conor McGregor breaks U.K. pay-per-view buys record with over 1 million
Floyd Mayweather X Conor McGregor produce over 1 million pay-per-view buys in the United Kingdom, Sky Sports confirmed to BoxingNewsOnline.net today.
The over-1-million mark breaks the previous U.K. record set by the heavyweight showdown between Anthony Joshua X Wladimir Klitschko in April of this year. It also blew away the number for the 2015 fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, which hauled in 700,000 buys.
Though the $55.4 million live gate for “The Money Fight” between Mayweather X McGregor fell well short of the $72.2 million record set by Mayweather-Pacquiao, things continue to trend in the right direction on the pay-per-view side of things.
