Teofimo Lopez-Pedro Campa Generates 890,000 Viewers On Average
On August 13, Teofimo Lopez (16-1, 12 KOs) enjoyed a successful junior welterweight debut in a technical knockout of Mexico’s Pedro Campa.
Little did he know that his memorable win would become one of the most televised American sporting events in recent memory. The bout generated a peak of 913,000 viewers with 890,00 viewers on average according to Nielsen Media Research.
The show produced a rating of 0.26 according to the home viewers aged between 18 and 49. It was ranked sixth in comparison to all American cable telecasts and retained the entire lead-in audience from the previous UFC Fight Night telecast successfully.
Lopez made a return to ESPN for the first since his career-defining win over Vasiliy Lomachenko in October 2020. Between that win and the recent spectacle, the only defeat Lopez suffered was against George Kambosos Jr. to end his title reign.
The loss against Kambosos Jr. was also Lopez’s last fight at lightweight, with the “Takeover” now eager to conquer the junior welterweight division. According to the ratings from Saturday, it still feels like he is an attractive force in the boxing world.
