Promoter: 1 million pay-per-view buys suddenly a possibility for Errol Spence vs. Mikey Garcia title fight

The consensus has been that Saturday’s IBF welterweight title fight at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, between champion Errol Spence Jr. and Mikey Garcia might do 300,000, or slightly more.

Errol Spence defends his IBF welterweight title against Mikey Garcia on Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Schaefer praised Fox’s help in pushing the fight and said it’s making a difference in ticket sales, as well as pay-per-view potential.

He said he’s optimistic it can break the stadium record of 51,240 for boxing, set in 2016 when Canelo Alvarez defeated Liam Smith .

Bars and restaurants across the United States are reporting unbelievable numbers, in excess of what Canelo and [Gennady Golovkin] did their first fight.

… There are large crowds of people coming from the border towns in Mexico, particularly Monterrey,” Schaefer said.
