ESPN Show Does Great Numbers
Saturday nights Top Rank on ESPN Vasyl Lomachenko vs Guillermo Rigondeaux card was the second most watched boxing event on cable this year.
Loma/Rigo was watched by an average of 1.73 million viewers, according to ratings released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. The overall numbers will actually be higher because the figures reported by Nielsen on Tuesday don’t include viewers that watched it on ESPN Deportes or the ESPN App.
Only one boxing telecast on basic or premium cable over the past five years, Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn, drew higher ratings than the Lomachenko-Rigondeaux card. That card, which featured Horn’s upset of Pacquiao on July 2 in Brisbane, Australia, attracted an average viewership of 2,818,000.
