Following the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor "Money Fight", many celebrities, fighters, and analysts were backstage.
"It's still a little fuzzy and I don't have it narrowed down to a precise range yet", Espinoza told Yahoo Sports.
It's possible White's estimate of 6.5 million is a worldwide figure. "It lived up to those expectations in every respect".
The fight cost $89.95 to watch in standard definition and $99.95 in high definition. Nevertheless, Mayweather kept his cool and methodically waited for McGregor to tire around the eighth round before unloading barrage after barrage of punches, causing referee Robert Byrd to stop the fight.
Mayweather is estimated to have earned a minimum of US$100 million from the fight, and announced his retirement from boxing after his 10th-round TKO victory over McGregor.
Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round, the first time he has had a real stoppage in almost a decade. You should be selling this fight against Conor, not me. Espinoza said that Showtime received a slightly more favorable split than normal for this fight, but would not go into other details. This video, taken shortly after the Mayweather / McGregor fight last weekend, has been circulating online and shows Foxx doing a borderline offensive Irish accent when asked about the outcome of the fight.

Boss David Wagner believes the time was right for Wells to move on to pastures new but was quick to pay tribute to the forward. Wells ends a three and-a-half-year stay with the Terriers after helping the West Yorkshire club climb into the top-flight.
After the fight, Mayweather reported an $80 million gate, but the Mayweather Promotions chief executive, Leonard Ellerbe, declined to confirm that number, only saying, "I am confident we are in good shape".
The pay-per-view numbers include streaming on the Showtime and UFC apps as well as cable and satellite television buys.
When comparing her own foray into MMA, she said that it was "impossible" for McGregor to win because he was going straight in "at the highest boxing level". I just figured, we're brothers in arms here. But he said the nature of the fight meant groups of people gathered to watch it, and that most bought it legitimately to be guaranteed the best possible feed.
Speaking about the pay-per-view breakdown, Stephen Espinoza said that whether the record is officially broken or not, the event was undoubtedly a complete success. "And we knew a huge amount of people were going to be watching, including some who watched illegally".
As it turns out, that wasn't far off McGregor's game plan, as he went in early to try and knock out the undefeated former boxing champion.
