    Mayweather/McGreggor total PPV

    Hi - Does anyone know when the total PPV sales will be released by Showtime for the Mayweather/McGreggor fight that was held on 8/22? It seems odd that two months have passed and we still don't know the total PPV sales. I have funds held up at a book because they cannot settle the bet I made without the final numbers from Showtime.

    they have to count it all up and see what the books need to hit, before they give a number.

    Showtime quiet, but Dana White claims it broke the record.


    It appears as though "The Money Fight" has lived up to its billing.
    Floyd Mayweather's summer superfight with Conor McGregor has pulled 6.7 million pay-per-view buys worldwide and claimed the buyrate record in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Spain, UFC president Dana White told the Wall Street Journal recently.
    The matchup had been expected to compete with - if not surpass - the revenue produced by "The Fight of the Century" between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Showtime has not yet confirmed White's claims, although network exec Stephen Espinoza recently said the numbers were trending towards a combat sports best.
