The Spence-Crawford super-fight generated approximately $75 million in gate receipts and pay-per-view, according to reports

The highly-anticipated undisputed welterweight showdown between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. generated upwards of $75 million, according to reports.

The event, which took place at the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday in Las Vegas, brought two of the best American male boxers in the sport after years of protracted negotiations.

An event organizer at the time told ProBox TV that 19,990 fans attended the super-fight which, according to Sports Business Journal, generated approximately $21 million in ticket sales.


Those fans witnessed history in the making as Crawford dropped Spence three times and finished him in round nine to seal one of the most significant victories of all time at 147-pounds.

As far as pay-per-view revenue is concerned, reporter Dan Rafael tweeted Thursday that the Showtime Sports broadcast was sold to 650,000 homes in the US — a number that could potentially rise to 675,000 once all the sales are tabulated.


This, therefore, grossed $55 million at the Box Office.

Combined with the ticket sales, revenues from tickets and pay-per-views hit $75 million.

ProBox TV has queried the numbers with event organizers but is yet to receive a response.

Victory in the fight advanced Crawford’s pro boxing record to 40 wins (31 knockouts). He remains unbeaten.

Having suffered the debut loss of his pro career, Spence, meanwhile, saw his record retreat to 28 wins (22 knockouts) with that sole blemish to Crawford.

Speculation has risen in the aftermath as to whom Crawford will fight next. 

Spence is obligated to invoke a rematch according to a clause in the fight contract with his rival. 

It is something he told ProBox TV and other reporters on the night that he was eager to do, yet it remains unclear if he’ll activate that option.

Crawford, meanwhile, is the talk of the trade and could rematch Spence, stay at 147 to fight Jaron Ennis, or move to 154-pounds to try and become undisputed champion in another weight class.
