Tyson vs. Paul is not on PPV as the heavyweight bout will be aired on Netflix, who have over 200 million subscribers.

But had the boxing legend’s clash against ‘The Problem Child’ been on PPV, then it would’ve generated huge buys considering the profile of both fighters.

‘Iron’ Mike is no stranger to pulling in massive PPV numbers, having been involved in some big fights during his iconic professional career.

He had two monster fights against Evander Holyfield, which garnered a combined 3,590,000 PPV buys.

However, when it comes to the PPV king, then look no further than Floyd Mayweather, who dominates the top ten.

His super-fight against Manny Pacquiao back in May 2015 generated a whopping 4,600,000 PPV buys.

And his money-spinning showdown against UFC superstar Conor McGregor brought in 4,300,000 PPV buys.

His fights against Oscar De La Hoya and Canelo Alvarez generated 2,400,000 and 2,200,000 PPV buys respectively.
