ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Oscar De La Hoya-Bernard Hopkins middleweight championship bout did not break pay-per-view (PPV) records, but it made good money. At $54.95 or more per buy, the Home Box Office Inc. PPV event drew $56 million in PPV revenue. For non-heavyweight events, that trailed only De La Hoya's 1999 loss to Felix Trinidad, which notched 1.4 million buys and $71 million in revenue. Due up, HBO PPV has an October 2 Felix Trinidad-Ricardo Mayorga middleweight match and a November 13 Don King-promoted PPV event featuring heavyweight champions Chris Byrd and John Ruiz and former heavyweight champions Hasim Rahman and Evander Holyfield, in separate bouts.
