Boxing: Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Canelo Alvarez: “Money’s” controversial take on the Mexican fighter’s PPV flop

The pay-per-view numbers of the fight between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin were not the best in the United States, nor in the world, a situation that Floyd Mayweather Jr. criticized, although later he seemed to defend and understand what is happening nowadays with events of this type.

According to reports released this week, the third fight between Canelo and Golovkin sold between $550,000 and $600,000 in revenue generated by the pay-per-view contracting in the United States, and $1.06 million worldwide, figures lower than what they sold in their first two contests.

“They should be at the top. I should be selling a million subscriptions, the record-setting numbers have changed. I just got a report on the Canelo fight and someone sent me an article that it only sold $500,000,” said Money Mayweather, who in that first comment criticized the man considered until a few months ago the best pound for pound.

But then he seemed to understand the situation and even defended Canelo, because Mayweather knows that nowadays boxing fans have more and more options to watch this sport without the need to hire a pay-per-view. He even assured that he, in his fight with Logan Paul, sold much more than that Canelo and GGG.

“It has changed drastically. With Logan Paul I was able to sell $1 million, which was good. PPV has changed drastically and people are finding ways to watch fights without paying. That really hurts fighters,” Mayweather Jr. said.

The $1.06 million Canelo and Golovkin made at the close of their trilogy is the least amount of the three fights they made, as the first fight sold $1.3 million in the US aloneand the following year they made it $1.1 million.
