Teofimo Lopez-Sandor Martin Fight Averaged 951,000 Views On ESPN
Lopez won by split decision this past Saturday.
American professional boxer Teofimo Lopez (18-1, 13 KOs) has been gaining a lot of attraction in the early part of his professional boxing career.
The reports state that his second junior welterweight fight drew higher viewership on ESPN compared to his 140-pound debut a few months ago.
According to Nielsen Media Research, the data revealed an average of 951,000 views in the fight between Lopez and Sandor Martin. Eventually, it was the 25-year-old who emerged victorious in a 10-round main event at Madison Square Garden – a result that some boxing fans have argued against.
The sources reveal that the highest audience reported during the match was 972,000. Lopez’s previous fight was a seventh-round stoppage of Pedro Campa on August 13. That bout averaged 890,000 viewers and drew a peak audience of 913,000.
ESPN’s entire four-bout broadcast lasted three hours and eight minutes and attracted an average of 840,000 viewers. The numbers put forward by Nielsen only include those viewers who watched the match on ESPN’s linear channel.
The Brooklyn native Lopez outsmarted Martin on two scorecards, which appeared to be a highly competitive tussle. Surprisingly, Quebec-based judge Pasquale Procopio scored eight out of ten rounds for Lopez, who won 97-92 on the scoreboard.
On the other hand, California’s Max De Luca scored seven rounds for the 25-year-old, who was initially knocked down in the second round.
