Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia set the bar high in last weekend’s super-fight. 

Money, Money, Money

After seven rounds of action, the undefeated ‘Tank’ Davis took out Garcia with a body shot to stop the contest. The event would do massive numbers worldwide, raking in 1.2M pay-per-view buys, according to Sports Business Journal

With each Showtime PPV priced at $84.95, the PBC will earn around $102M in revenue. Talk about a big payday. 

But, the cash-outs don’t stop there of course. Davis vs. Garcia also achieved a terrific score at T-Mobile Arena. The boxing event pulled in a $22.8M gate from 20,842 fans in attendance with the average ticket being priced over $1,000. 

This is said to be the fifth highest gate for a fight in Nevada history, only trailing behind a few listed below.

Davis and Garcia had a long-standing disagreement on social media which finally led to them facing each other in a 136lb prizefight. Although there were no major world titles at stake, both fighters were such big stars in the sport that their match drew a lot of attention and money from the public.

As for the fighters that made the match possible, both Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia will reportedly make eight-figure payouts. However, ‘Tank’ will be earning a larger split as he is the ‘A-side’ in this match-up.

And no, Davis won’t be getting Garcia’s purse after all as he dismissed their original ‘winner-take-all’ bet following their fight.
