Am I the only one thinking it odd that neither HBO nor GBP have released the numbers of PPV buys for the Mayweather Ortiz battle?
Although these kinds of numbers are normally released within a week or two of the event, there is always the possibility, like hanging chads, that the count has not been finalized. I say possibility because I have my doubts.
There is no greater way to promote your success than to have real numbers, even the usual inflated versions so common in boxing, to boast about. In the past, not only were numbers speculated and bantered about, they were exaggerated upon as early release as possible.
I say past because that administration at HBO has changed and I am wondering if the new administration is as willing as the last to allow the promoters, all of them, to fudge their numbers as we almost assuredly know the have.
I'm curious to know your thoughts....and/or any information you all may have...on the subject.
