Chavez Jr vs Martinez: Official Attendance Numbers and Live Gate

Saturday's HBO pay-per-view event, headlined by Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs Sergio Martinez, was a sellout at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, and drew a strong live gate, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The fight sold 16,939 tickets, with zero unsold, and 751 comps. That adds up to less than the 19,186 number that was claimed before, but that's pretty much par for the course, like when they announced 50,994 for Pacquiao-Clottey, or like when the WWF claimed 93,173 at the Pontiac Silverdome.

The total gate was $3,052,475.

Both this and the Canelo vs Lopez show produced really strong numbers, in terms of tickets sold and live gates for shows on this level -- I hate to say that Chavez Jr vs Martinez "won" the night, because that was always going to be true, as it was just a much bigger, better main event, and I doubt anyone would disagree with that, plus I hate implying that someone "lost." Nobody lost here. Both shows performed in every way, and everybody deserves credit for that.

Boxing came up big on Saturday. It should only take about 10 to 14 days for the next announcement of its death by someone dumb.
