The PRIME boxing card reportedly sold nowhere near the 1.3 million as was rumored.

An anonymous source told Happy Punch – a management company for influencer boxers – that the PRIME card featuring KSI vs. Tommy Fury and Logan Paul vs. Dillon Danis sold around 1.3 million pay-per-view buys. The number was surprising, but many were skeptical of it, given it was just days after the event, and usually pay-per-views take weeks to come in.

However, according to pay-per-view expert Dave Meltzer at Wrestling Observer Radio, the event did around 100,000 pay-per-view buys. He claims the PRIME Card did 10,000 domestic buys in the U.S. on cable TV, and the final number of American buys is closer to 100,000 than 1 million. Meltzer also says the report of 1.3 million is just made up and isn’t close to being true. 

When the exact numbers of the PRIME card pay-per-view buyrate are to be seen.

KSI appealing PRIME card result

In the main event of the PRIME card, Tommy Fury beat KSI by unanimous decision. It was a lackluster fight that was full of clinching, but Fury got the win, even though he had a point deduction. The result was a bit of a surprise, and since the event, KSI announced he would be appealing the decision.

“[I won rounds] 1-3 and a point off, how do I lose a six-rounder? Unreal. He’s the man that’s meant to be the pro boxer. The amount of times he hit me in the back of the head and the referee only gave one point, and he was doing it over and over. He was trying to f*** up my equilibrium. It’s outrageous. We’re going to appeal. We need to appeal. I feel like I won that,” KSI said after the fight.

In the co-main event, Logan Paul beat Dillon Danis by DQ, after the former Bellator fighter tried to put the YouTuber into a guillotine. Danis, however, has also said he will be appealing the result as Paul’s security entered the ring.
