The highly anticipated boxing match between Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia, which took place on April 22 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and was streamed on Showtime PPV, has shattered records with over 1.2 million pay-per-view (PPV) buys across all platforms, according to insiders. With more than $22.8 million in ticket sales, the bout also potentially ranks as the fifth-largest gate in Nevada fighting history, with a crowd of approximately 20,842 people in attendance. The event only fell short of the record-setting number generated by the first Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovin boxing match in 2017, which generated 1.3 million PPV buys. The numbers showcase the high demand for the Davis-Garcia fight as one of the most highly anticipated combat sports events in recent memory. Even the previous heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, held at the same venue, could not cross $1 million in PPV buys and drew only $10 million in ticket sales. The rivalry between Davis and Garcia had been brewing for years, and many fans were expecting an intense showdown. They certainly weren't disappointed, with world-renowned boxer Davis stopping Ryan Garcia in the seventh round with a body shot that rendered him unable to continue. In interviews leading up to the fight, boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya, who once set the record for most PPV buys in a single event, predicted that the Davis-Garcia fight would draw between 2 and 2.5 million PPV buys. While it didn't break that record, the match surpassed all expectations and was a resounding success. After the fight, both Davis and Garcia expressed mutual respect for each other, and many boxing fans are already looking forward to a potential rematch. Regardless of what the future holds, it's clear that Davis and Garcia's epic showdown has left the boxing community in awe and set a new standard for pay-per-view boxing events.
