Last month’s exhibition fight between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. was a rousing success, as it drew well over one million pay-per-view buys and tens of millions of dollars in revenue.
According to Josh Peter of USA Today, Tyson’s Legends Only League, which promoted the event, reported that it generated more than 1.6 million pay-per-view buys and over $80 million in revenue based on numbers provided by Triller.
While Triller did not confirm the numbers, Triller spokesman Michael Goldberg said the card ranked in the top 10 all time among combat sports events in pay-per-view buys.
