PPV revenue comes on top of a sellout crowd of 14,436 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The revenue from ticket sales is not at the time.
It is already known that Devin Haney got $4 million guaranteed for this fight against Vasily Lomachenko, who got $3 million in guarantee. With the amount of PPV buys, it does not look like they would get any bonus on top of that. Haney was also fined $400,000 for shoving Lomachenko off.
Haney defeated Lomachenko via unanimous decision with the scoreline of 116-112, 115-113, 115-113. But majority of the fans and media gave the fight to Lomachenko.
