Wilder vs Fury 2 PPV Buys

1.2 million (est as of 2/29/20)
Mike Coppinger initially announced that Wilder vs Fury 2 generated between 800-850,000 PPV buys.

“In regards to the Fury vs Wilder (II) Pay-Per-View, they don’t have the digital numbers yet. The digital is well over 300,000 buys,” Arum exclusively told World Boxing News. “It’s probably sort of accurate (the 850,000 reported). But then you add in the digital on top of that. So three hundred and change (to 850,000). It’s closer to 1.2 million.” Once officially crunched, those final tallies will be a solid return to the big time for heavyweight boxing in the United States.

And according to Chris Mannix, digital buys through ESPN+ and the FOX Sports app saved the night, doing better than expected. Traditional cable underperformed.

Wilder vs Fury 2 Purses

There was a 50-50 purse split and the fighter's received at least $25 Million USD apiece plus a certain percentage of PPV revenue. Should they fight a third time, it's believed (although not confirmed by us) the purse will be split 60/40 in Fury's favor.
