The Triller Fight Club’s show featuring Jake Paul’s knockout of Ben Askren couldn’t have gone better, and the numbers don’t lie.
The event, which also featured four other boxing fights has recorded at least one million pay-per-views and there are units still to be tallied. When all is said and done, many are speculating that the event will garner roughly 1.2-1.6 million pay-per-view units sold. A resounding success, surely the promotion is quite pleased with these numbers.
After only producing one other show with Mike Tyson as the headliner, Triller Fight Club is young in age but has appeared to make big waves early.
Jake Paul And Triller: Monster Success
It was clear with all of the social media buzz and hype around the fight prior, that if there was an emphatic ending, the winner would explode into superstardom. With such monstrous numbers, that notion is not far from the truth, and Jake Paul has successfully parlayed his YouTube career into a lucrative boxing career.
Comparatively, Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier II did 1.6 million pay-per-view buys, so the young boxer isn’t far off from famous Irishman.
It will take weeks to tally the final numbers, but there is no doubt that the show was a giant success, and most fight fans could tell it was trending in that direction because of the electric atmosphere during fight week.
With numbers as high as 1.2-1.6 million units sold, the event will definitely contend as one of the biggest of the year.
