I'm betting a lot of people chose to watch the free fight instead of the PPV.

...actualy gumby they did both.the chavez fight early ppv numbers according to hbo and arum make them anticipate that it will do at least 500 000 ppvs with a outside chance of 600 000.

thoses nunbers fall into what i predicted.arum said he based the guarentees on 250-300 thousand ppvs which means both fighters should get a good back end.both fights sold out the live gate also.it was a excellent night for boxing hbo and showtime.

Ginger vs the Pot Head in Mexico DF, the same stadium where Chavez Sr. fought Greg Haugen. I bet you anything that fight out sells Pacquiao vs Mayweather.

With all of the posturing by both sides of Pac-May, and with both of the alleged P4P top dogs seeming to lose something each fight, no one can argue that what was a Megafight now is not going to make nearly as much money as it would have in 2010 or early 2011.

I still say it does better than Canelo-JCC jr. though...at least thru 2013.

After that, you may be right.
