Crawford vs. Avanesyan: Will it reach 10,000 buys?

Via Adam Baskin: Terence ‘Bud’ Crawford vs David Avanesyan this Saturday night on BLK Prime PPV will only attract very little buzz from boxing fans and it will likely turn out to be a disaster in terms of proportions. buying.

Today, no one seems to be talking about Crawford vs Avanesyan on social media despite the match being played on Saturday night, December 10.

Perhaps fans will suddenly start buzzing about WBO welterweight champion Crawford versus 34-year-old boxer Avanesyan starting Tuesday and continuing into the bout.

That may not be realistic as there have been very few fans talking about the game over the past two weeks. The fact that Crawford focused on discussing the match against Errol Spence rather than his match against Avanesyan further affected promotion.

Promoter Eddie Hearn predicts that Crawford-Avanesyan won’t even bring in 10,000 purchases. If true, Crawford could forever forget about fighting any of the big names at 147 or 154.

Despite ranking high on the weight list, Crawford is living proof that the average boxing fan doesn’t notice that rubbish. That’s purely for the die-hard fan of keeping track of things pound-by-pound. Fans are more interested in fighters who are entertaining and/or have great personalities.

You could argue that Crawford lacks both of those areas. He is a strong counter-attacker who is better when he reacts to an opponent than when he is in the lead.

As for Crawford (38-0.29 KOs), it’s important that his bout with Avanesyan yields a respectable amount of buys as he remains hopeful to face the IBF, WBA & WBC welterweight champions Errol Spence Jr next year.

Unfortunately, that probably won’t happen if Crawford’s match against Avanesyan (29-3-1, 17 KOs) yields low PPV buys, because it would put the Omaha, Nebraska native in a tailspin weak he will win’ cannot negotiate the deal he wants.

Crawford-Avaneysan will take place at CHI Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

“10,000 buys won’t make it,” Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn told media last Saturday night about Crawford’s fight with Avanesyan. “10,000! If it’s $60, it won’t make 10,000 purchases.

“If you get paid that much [ten million+ dollars] to fight Avanesyan, you want twenty [million dollars] to fight Spence, or you want twenty-five [million]. It’s just madness.”
