For the most loyal fans of boxing, the Misfits Boxing: The Prime Card featuring Tommy Fury vs KSI and Logan Paul vs Dillon Danis, among other YouTuber-turned-boxers, did not sit well within the community. The mid-October PPV was devoid of much action and was filled with clinching and illegal antics, which was capped off when Danis attempted a jiu-jitsu takedown on Paul in the sixth round of their fight.
As is commonly said, there are two sides to every story. It’s being reported that The Prime Card has sold approximately 1.3 million global buys via Happy Punch. If the report stands true this would be a huge financial success for the PPV card, which was priced at $54.99 for US fans and £19.99 in the UK.

For context, Ryan Garcia vs Tank Davis sold 1.2 million PPV buys, while Canelo Alvarez vs Jermell Charlo and Terence Crawford vs Errol Spence Jr. each sold around 700K. No fighter on the card, nor Misfits Boxing has officially confirmed the reports regarding the total PPV sales, though this rumor is representing that boxing, as a form of pure entertainment, is here to stay.
