That's how many Pay Per View buys there were for the Mayweather-Pacquiao bout according to Showtime.
That crushes all previous records.
Oh, and the amount of money the live gate brought in?
How's over $72 million sound?
That pretty much grinds all previous records into dust, as well.
And yet I've been told repeatedly - and rather smugly at times - that boxing is dead.
Well, as they say, numbers don't lie. And these numbers are astronomical. Mayweather-Pacquiao took in about half a billion dollars total. That's half a billion. What's more, it's looking like the uptick in interest in the sweet science is more than just a one time thing.
For a week before Mayweather-Pacquiao, heavyweight kingpin Wladimir Klitschko beat a game, competitive Bryant Jennings live on HBO. The numbers for that fight were the highest for HBO since 2012. Yet there's more to tell.
A week after Mayweather-Pacquiao, Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez bested James Kirkland in a three round war. The numbers for that fight were the highest for HBO since 2006. See where this is going?
Now, about that whole "Boxing is dead" thing...
