Rumors are kicking around the internets about the pay-per-view buy rates for the May 3 Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana fight/card.
The promotion did under 900,000 buys, I heard.
Same as the fight versus Robert Guerrero, I heard.
But I wanted it from the mouth of the horse, or, in this case, the lead dog of Showtime sports, Stephen Espinoza. What about it, are the numbers out, just in time for Mothers Day?
"No numbers yet," Espinoza told me. "Cable hasn't even reported yet. Any numbers floating around are pure speculation."
So, anyone Tweeting about Showtime losing their shirt off this fight, that's bunk?
"By nature of our deal, no outcome is possible in which Showtime suffers significant losses," he said.
There ya go. Now go out, and take mom to Red Lobster, or whatev.
Would you pay to see Manny Pacquiao vs Saul Alvarez?
