Davis vs Garcia did approximately 1.2M PPV buys according to reports

Even more money was made from the Gervonta Davis-Ryan Garcia bout than those responsible for organising it anticipated.

According to information obtained, the Showtime Pay-Per-View main event sold almost 1.2 million copies in the US. The majority of experts  predicted that it would generate between 450,000 and 750,000 buys, which would still have been a success given the state of the boxing pay-per-view market in the United States.

A reported sellout crowd of 20,842 people attended the 136-pound, non-title bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which brought in an additional $22.8 million in ticket revenue. Only Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao (almost $72.2 million), Mayweather-Conor McGregor (more than $55.4 million), Alvarez-Gennadiy Golovkin I (more than $27 million), and Alvarez-Golovkin II (more than $24.4 million) have earned more money in Nevada boxing history.

Although Davis, 28, and Garcia, 24, are two of the most popular boxers in the sport, pay-per-view sales have recently suffered due to piracy and exorbitant prices. However, their battle enthralled both casual and passionate boxing fans, making it Showtime Pay-Per-View's most lucrative event since Mayweather-McGregor in August 2017.

With 4.3 million pay-per-view purchases, Mayweather-McGregor came in second only behind Mayweather-Pacquiao in May 2015. A record 4.6 million people watched Mayweather-Pacquiao, and the event generated over $600 million in revenue.
