“May 5th was a great night for two elite fighters, Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather, and an even greater night for the sport of boxing,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, the promoter of the boxing event that shattered records in a number of different areas. “We knew that if you put two of the best fighters in the world together in the ring and promote it properly, it would show the world just how special this sport can be, and we proved that. Boxing isn’t going anywhere except up.” According to Golden Boy Promotions, the fight set the following records:
— Television in 176 countries

— 2.15 million pay-per-view buys
— $120 million in pay-per-view revenue
— 2000+ U.S. closed circuit locations

“I’m pleased that boxing fans responded to this fight the way they did and the success of this event is something that the sport needed,” said De La Hoya. “Floyd and I fought our hearts out and when the big names in the sport step up
to the plate to fight each other, boxing and the fans benefit.”
