I read that the fight did 150,000 buys on PPV.

WOW.

Schaefer said the pay-per-view tally for the Bernard Hopkins-Roy Jones Jr. fight on April 3 is at about 130,000 but is expected to approach 150,000 after all the figures are in.

Golden Boy set 300,000 as its goal. However, some experts wondered whether it would exceed 100,000, which Schaefer said was overly pessimistic.

"They ARE two big names," he said.

Is that surprise in how high those buys were or how low? I'm personally surprised it broke 100,000.

I like Pavlik by late stoppage and I don't believe he will be down on the cards either. I also don't discount Pavlik planting Martinez on the seat of his pants in the early rounds either.

Roy may get some scratch after all.

Wow...120-150,000 buys is just the right amount to make sure both Hopkins and Jones make their $3.5 million. Somebody's good with numbers.

So if the fight did 150k, then Jones Jr. actually gets his 3.5 million as well?
