Early Reports Have Davis vs. Garcia PPV At 1.2 Million Buys

If the early reports by Keith Idec of are true, then boxing
might just have a new king. Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia was reported
by Idec to have approximately 1.2 million buys in the United States
alone. As this would shatter the expectations that were laid out prior to this

The pay-per-view fight which was contested at 136-lbs catchweight, had a
sell-out crowd reported as 20,842, that filled out the T-Mobile Arena in
Las Vegas, Nevada. That in terms of money means that the event grossed

The socialites, who are now legitimate stars after recording such record feats
at the box office also saw Showtime and DAZN work together to offer the
fight. A true sign of stardom was when the two fighters got industry competitors

Davis, who stopped Ryan Garcia in the seventh round via a body shot, also
dropped Garcia in the second round as well. Garcia had never been
featured on a pay-per-view card prior to this fight, but has one of the largest
social media followings ever for a non-champion boxer, let alone any boxer
in the history of the sport.

Davis has been featured on pay-per-view six times dating back to his first
appearance which was Halloween night, October 31st, 2020 when he
knocked out Leo Santa Cruz in six rounds. Since then Davis has fought
Mario Barrios, Isaac Cruz, Rolando Romero, Hector Luis Garcia, and now
Ryan Garcia. In this decade, Davis has not been featured on a card that

was not on pay-per-view, and given these numbers it is highly unlikely that
will change.

After the fight, Ryan Garcia announced that he will no longer compete at
lightweight and will compete at junior welterweight.
