Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul PPV Sales: Mayweather’s Exhibition Bout Generates “Horrible” PPV Buys

In one of the biggest events of the year, Floyd Mayweather takes on Logan Paul in an exhibition boxing match. Now, this is an unusual matchup but it’s a huge one when you consider the fan base both Mayweather and Logan Paul have.

Floyd Mayweather is the greatest boxer of this generation and the highest-paid combat sports athlete of all time. On the other hand, Logan Paul is one of the biggest names on YouTube. So it was expected that this fight would bring in some incredible numbers considering the fact that both Mayweather and Logan Paul have brought in stellar PPV numbers in their previous fights.

Surprisingly, the exhibition match between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul could bring good PPV numbers as per recent reports.
As per the recent reports by Wrestling Observer, Mayweather’s boxing return bring in disappointing numbers in terms of PPV sales. It also has to be considered that the PPV price for this event was $49.99, cheaper compared to Mayweather’s previous few fights.

Dave Meltzer commented on this boxing spectacle and stated:

“Yeah, the advanced pay-per-view numbers are horrible. I think that come this week we’re going to have some people really lying, you know, who knows?”

“Maybe 1 million people are going to buy the pay-per-view in the afternoon at the last minute. It’s always possible.”
