Mayweather-Canelo Fight Sets Pay-Per-View Record

'The One' topped 2007's Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather, the previous record holder

Floyd Mayweather wasn’t the only one raking in the dough Saturday night.

The Mayweather-Canelo boxing match, broadcast on Showtime Pay-Per-View, snagged nearly $150 million, making it the highest-grossing pay-per-view of all time. The fight’s PPV gross topped 2007’s Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather bout, which drew $136 million.

Prelim reports show the Mayweather-Canelo fight — titled “The One” — at roughly 2.2 million PPV buys. The existing records for PPV buys is 2.48 million for the De La Hoya-Mayweather match, though Showtime notes that Saturday night’s fight may break that record, as well.

“The One,” held at the Las Vegas MGM Grand Garden Arena, sold out within 24 hours of going on sale and broke a live gate revenue with $20 million.

Mayweather Promotions and Goldenboy Promotions promoted the boxing event.
