Previous PPV Buys
Pacquiao vs Bradley I, June 2012 – 900K PPV buys
Pacquiao vs Bradley 2, Apr 2014 – 750K to 800K PPV buys
Given 1) the immediate aftermath of Pacquiao vs Bradley I was unprecedented and 2) Bradley's recent wins over the surging Ruslan Provodnikov and PacMan foe Juan Manuel Marquez, Top Rank had hoped to garner over 1 million buys for the rematch which yielded only 750-800K buys.
Promoter Bob Arum is optimistic tonight, hoping for at least 700K buys for what is believed to be Manny Pacquiao final bout.
Given Manny’s stock has dropped a bit since his loss to Floyd Mayweather and controversial comments about gays, Top Rank is relying on hardcore fans who won't be able to resist seeing a fight legend ply his trade one last time.
Projected buyrate: Look for Manny Pacquiao vs Tim Bradley to garner about 500K buys.
