Although final PPV revenues are not going to be announced for another week, The NY Times has stated that amid a live crowd of 14,623, the internationally televised event was expected to surpass the record earnings from Mayweather’s fight against Pacquiao. That fight generated more than $600 million in revenue from a combination of pay-per view purchases, ticket sales, sponsorships and merchandise.

Capturing the attention of the entire world, Mayweather and McGregor made history with their August 26 'Money Fight.' The two biggest fighters on the planet, responsible for record-breaking gate and pay-per-view figures, took combat sports to the next level, resulting in an outstanding branding opportunity whereas POTN and Diamond CBD sponsored a couple of the contenders, thus being made clearly visible for an extended period of time to combat sport enthusiasts.

Viewership exceeded expectation, even to the extent of intermittently overwhelming transmission. Collectively, nearly one in six Americans watched the fight, in addition to millions of viewers worldwide.

“We want to thank Francisco Fonseca and Steve Cunningham for the opportunity to gain this monumental level of brand exposure. In consideration of what is paid for a 30 second commercial spot, during a comparable sporting event, we believe that this is one of the most exciting opportunities for public exposure that Diamond CBD and POTN have ever experienced,” said Gary Blum, Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud to have been part of this event through these sponsorships. We enjoyed joining the millions of viewers during the event, and are pleased to have successfully executed this aspect of our marketing strategy.”
