Whether or not it lived up to the hype, Sunday’s exhibition boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul will end up being one of the biggest fights of 2021. The pay-per-view generated at least one million buys, according to multiple reports

Once the final numbers are in, it’s possible that the exact number of PPV sales could be significantly larger than one million buys, according to The Athletic. The PPV cost $49.99 on both Fanmio and Showtime, of which the latter some customers had trouble purchasing on the night of the event.

The bout was an unsanctioned exhibition fight. It lasted eight rounds and no winner was declared. Mayweather clearly got the better of Paul, though the YouTuber shocked many fight fans by avoiding a knockout.

The April 17 fight between Ben Askren and Jake Paul, Logan’s brother, reportedly sold over one million PPV buys, as well. The exhibition boxing match between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. late last year reportedly sold more than 1.6 million PPV buys.

Boxing matches don’t usually reach the seven-figure mark, though it’s familiar territory for Mayweather. The greatest boxer of his generation is responsible for the largest PPVs in the sport’s history.

In his last professional boxing match, Mayweather knocked out Conor McGregor in August 2017 amid 4.3 million PPV buys. That number was only topped in 2015 when the highly anticipated bout between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao generated 4.4 million buys.

There is speculation that Mayweather and Jake Paul could eventually go head-to-head in the ring. That bout might do even bigger numbers than Sunday’s PPV.
