    Default Arum believes Wilder vs. Fury does 4.6 million PPV buys

    This has now become THE biggest fight in boxing.
    Joshua & Hearn must be shell shocked at how things have changed in the last few weeks.
    Not sure of the PPV buys Arums thinking but this is huge and will sell shitloads.
    The way Arums marketing Fury in the US is brilliant and Fury really is a promoters dream.

    Anyone know if there was only 9000 fans in the MGM as the article claims?

    He doesnt actually believe that, but saying so isnt going to make it sell any less. I think the numbers for the first fight were underwhelming, and given the fight exceeded all expectations and both guys have looked good getting their gimmes out of the way, the rematch should definitely do much better. At a guess it may do numbers closer to the Canelo GGG fights, around one million something.

    Why would it go from 325,000 to 4.6 on the first rematch? Sometimes it goes up and sometimes down. But not that kind of up.

    In the age of illegal streaming numbers will just go down and down.
    According to the BBC 1.1 million people in the UK alone watched Joshua v Ruiz on illegal streams.

    There's not many fights that I wouldn't use an illegal stream for these days


    I would however pay for Fury Wilder II for fear of losing an illegal stream at a crucial point so that's saying something.

    Who really cares about the exact amount other than the fighters themselves and their entourages/accountants.

    Point is the rematch would be huge, and made even bigger now that: 1. Wilder pulverized Breazeale, 2. AJ stumbled out of the gate, and 3. Fury put away that useless punching bag of an opponent.

    Assuming that, a) Wilder gets past Ortiz in their rematch, and b) Fury "really" wants the rematch with Wilder and is not just talking shit out the side of his mouth....... Wilder-Fury II should be quite rewarding financially for both.

    I am sure that Fury has to fight Wilder (or whoever holds the title) on his 3rd fight with ESPN as part of their lucrative contract.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    That be something else if throughout the year 1.1 million people receive a notice in the mail: You owe us! Caught ya!

    The guys who supply the streams/boxes get fucked hard if they get caught.

    Serious money to be made though

    Arum is losing the plot the old git. He was sitting next to Fury like a proud grandma.

    Wisdom, compassion and courage are the three universally recognised moral qualities of men.

    Arum is ancient, so I guess good for him still being relevant in a very cutthroat business.

    For sure. He is actually set to make a cameo in the next Pirates of the Carribean movie, and allegedly doing full frontal nudity. Its rated ARRRH......
