Broner-Granados Fight Peaked at 859,000 Viewers on Showtime

The flashy and outspoken Adrien Broner brings an audience. His action-packed welterweight fight on Saturday night in his hometown of Cincinnati against good pal Adrian Granados, which resulted in a split decision win for Broner in a razor-close battle, averaged 779,000 viewers for Showtime and peaked at 859,000, according to Nielsen Media Research.

 It was the best viewership and best peak viewership for a Showtime main event in two years, since Deontay Wilder outpointed Bermane Stiverne to win a heavyweight title in January 2015, though that fight averaged 1.24 million viewers and peaked at 1.34 million.

The Broner-Granados numbers, however, only include Showtime subscribers and do not include those watching Showtime's free preview weekend or the live stream of the card on Twitter, a first-time experiment for the network, which likely added many more viewers.
