ERROL SPENCE VS. LEONARD BUNDU REPORTEDLY BROKE RECORDS WITH 6 MILLION VIEWERS ON A SUNDAY

Coney Island, NY (August 22, 2016)– Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions reported Monday that the NBC-televised sixth-round knockout by Spence of Italian Leonard Bundu in Coney Island, N.Y., drew a record rating of 4.6 overnight rating that translates to 6 million viewers. Many of these viewers were new mainstream fans due to the Olympic coverage.

Spence earned himself a mandatory IBF Welterweight title fight with the win.

“Haymon was thrilled — that’s the biggest audience for PBC, day or night,” fight promoter Lou DiBella said Monday.

This rating is possibly due to the timing of the US Olympic Mens winning the gold medal before the event on NBC. PBC estimated the Olympics kept 75% of the viewers.

“The viewers could have departed, but they went from an excited event in Rio to an electric event at Brooklyn,” PBC spokesman Tim Smith said of the DiBella-promoted card that took place with an estimated 4,000 fans at an outdoor venue.

What excited PBC officials so was that the fight kept about 75% of the viewers.

“The viewers could have departed, but they went from an excited event in Rio to an electric event at Brooklyn,” PBC spokesman Tim Smith said of the DiBella-promoted card that took place with an estimated 4,000 fans at an outdoor venue.

“And Spence is spectacular, which didn’t hurt.”

“Obviously, there was a great lead-in with the basketball, but there’s great momentum in the sport, and it was an outstanding crowd in the great venue that helped maintain it,” DiBella said. “The sport’s on a nice roll, and it’s continuing.”

“The idea that Errol Spence, who’s unquestionably an emerging star, was seen by 6 million people, that’s amazing,” DiBella said. “A young star fighting in this venue — all these people screaming in Coney Island — also had a lot to do with keeping those people riveted.”
