Wilder vs Fury 2 PPV buys estimated between 800-850k in North America, eclipsing Lewis vs Tyson in 2002 but falling short of Bob Arum’s hopes

Wilder vs Fury 2 PPV buys estimated between 800-850k in North America, eclipsing Lewis vs Tyson in 2002 but falling short of Bob Arum’s hopes

Tyson Fury’s victory over Deontay Wilder on Saturday night was watched by an audience of between 800,000-850,000 paying customers in North America, according to reports.

If these figures prove to be accurate, the main event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena would have generated between $64m-$68million just through American PPV alone.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will get handsomely paid for their efforts on Saturday night

The ‘Gypsy King’ officially reclaimed his throne in Las Vegas by toppling long-standing WBC champion Wilder via seventh-round stoppage.

Despite hopes from Top Rank supremo Bob Arum, who said he would be ‘disappointed’ if PPV buys in the US was less than two million, it appears as though the official number will fall just short of one million.

According to The Athletic (as verified by Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix) the official figures will land in the region of 800,000-850,000 buys.

Privately, the senior figures of ESPN and Fox Sports hoped to achieve around 1 to 1.1 million PPV buys to just break even.

The Gypsy King dropped Wilder

However, they can take some solace in the fact the ESPN+ and Fox Sports apps over performed, while traditional cable did not.

The PPV figure was $79.99 in America, meaning 800k buys would equal roughly $64m. And if it is closer to the 850k mark, this equals around $68m.

Both fighters were reportedly set to pocket $25m each from the fight, regardless of PPV figures and would then get a percentage of the total accrued later on.

Deontay Wilder blames Tyson Fury defeat on ring walk COSTUME as he triggers rematch clause

Deontay Wilder blames Tyson Fury defeat on ring walk COSTUME as he triggers rematch clause.

  • Deontay Wilder lost his WBC heavyweight title to Tyson Fury on Saturday night
  • American was outclassed with his team throwing in the towel in round seven
  • He claims his 45-pound ring walk outfit played a significant role in the defeat
  • The former champion has also activated his rematch clause for a summer trilogy 

Deontay Wilder has laughably claimed the weight of his ring walk costume played a big role in his defeat by Tyson Fury – as he confirmed he will be triggering his rematch clause.

The American wore a black and red armoured body suit with a matching mask and crown as he made his way to the squared circle for his second bout with Fury at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Anthony Joshua v Tyson Fury: We will make fight happen, says Frank Warren

Anthony Joshua v Tyson Fury: We will make fight happen, says Frank Warren –

Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren says if fans want to see a unification fight with Anthony Joshua “we will make it happen”.

The British heavyweights now hold all of the division’s belts between them, after Fury, 31, beat Deontay Wilder, 34, on Sunday to claim the WBC title.

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said on Monday that “this fight will happen”.

“Of course we want to see the fight,” Warren told BBC Sport. “We’ve been trying to make it for two years.”

“Hearn kept saying was it’s got to be 70/30 [the purse] in favour of AJ and so on and so fourth.

“The tables have turned now. I have no problem with 50/50. I think Tyson would deserve more but 50/50, no problem.

“This is about the boxers and more importantly the fans. If they want to see the fight we will make it happen.

“In the meantime Eddie Hearn is acting like the guy standing outside your house with his nose pressed up against the window and keeps spouting off about Tyson.”

Tyson Fury produced the most destructive performance of his boxing life to end Deontay Wilder’s five-year reign as WBC heavyweight world champion in seven thrilling rounds of their Las Vegas rematch.

Tyson Fury stops Deontay Wilder in magnificent performance in Las Vegas

Tyson Fury stops Deontay Wilder in magnificent performance in Las Vegas

Fury knocked out the most feared puncher in the division (Picture: Getty)Tyson Fury is the new WBC champion after a stunning performance against Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.Wilder peeled himself off the canvas twice before Fury eventually stopped his rival in the seventh round.Fury had promised to go after his opponent after a draw in their first fight 14 months ago and the British heavyweight made good on his promise.

Almost no one except Fury’s team predicted he would be the aggressor, but the unified champion was all over the Bronze Bomber from the first bell.It was Wilder who landed first, with two hard shots in quick succession, but Fury responded and every shot the Gypsy King threw drew a massive roar from the partisan MGM Grand Arena crowd.

Fury dominated Wilder – The ferocious pace continued into the second round with Fury doing the best work, backing Wilder up onto the ropes with several blows in the final seconds.And then came an incredible third round as Fury floored Wilder for the first time in 15 rounds of action between the heavyweights.Wilder hit the deck after eating a sharp left hook, but was quickly back up. Fury had his arms in the air when Wilder went down a second time, but that was ruled a slip and gave the wounded champion some extra time to recover.

Wilder was repeatedly knocked down – Fury dominated the fourth round and turned to smirk at his corner when Wilder slipped again, and the crowd could feel a knockout was coming.There was blood pouring from the ear drum of Wilder and Fury finally put him down again in the fifth.

The Brit tried to finish Wilder off there and then, but the American was given time to breath when referee Kenny Bayless stepped in to deduct Fury a point for holding.[metro-zone-post-strip]Just as Fury thought he had control of the fight, Wilder reminded him of his power in the sixth but it was only a brief warning, as the defending champion’s equilibrium was clearly shot after receiving such heavy blows.After dominating every round, Fury was crowned the WBC champion in the seventh when Wilder’s corner threw in the towel.

Tyson Fury confirms he sustained injury at start of training camp ahead of Deontay Wilder rematch 🇬🇧🥊📰

Tyson Fury V Deontay Wilder update…

Tyson Fury confirms he sustained injury at start of training camp ahead of Deontay Wilder rematch

The Gypsy King is adamant his leg problems will not affect him on Saturday night.

Tyson Fury has confirmed that he did suffer an injury at the start of his training camp ahead of facing Deontay Wilder but insists it will not impact him on fight night.

The Gypsy King takes on WBC heavyweight champion Wilder at the MGM Grand on Saturday night in Las Vegas, though the build-up has been plagued by rumours of issues in Fury’s training camp.

Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, claimed he had ‘heard a few things in the camp’ that had prompted him to change his prediction for the fight from Fury to Wilder.

Wilder and Fury clashed at their press conference on Wednesday evening (Picture: Reuters)

While the lineal champ has rubbished the speculation, calling Hearn a ‘w*nker’, he has confirmed that he picked up an injury at the start of his camp – which might have been the issue Hearn had alluded to.

Fury was spotted with what appeared to be a limp when he attended Conor McGregor’s UFC fight against Cowboy Cerrone on January 18, and while he did hurt his legs he is adamant it is not a major problem.

Asked about the rumours that he had picked up an injury during his camp, Fury told reporters: ‘Unfortunately I hurt both legs, and both ankles, in the training camp.

‘But it’s not going to affect me in the fight because that was at the beginning of camp. It was an unnecessary accident, but, you know, things happen.’
