The FS1 prelim card leading into the Errol Spence Jr. vs. Mikey Garcia pay-per-view drew solid ratings for what the network typically draws in boxing.
The Spence Jr. vs. Garcia prelim card averaged 421,000 viewers and a 0.07 rating in the 18-49 demographic, good for 121st on cable for the day. The only fight on the FS1 broadcast was a heavyweight bout between former IBF world champion Charles Martin and Gregory Corbin.
Martin dominated the fight, but the story of the bout was the constant low blows being thrown by Corbin. Corbin was penalized and warned by the referee multiple times, but Corbin eventually got himself disqualified in the eighth round.
The viewership numbers for the card are the highest for FS1 since the January 13 PBC card headlined by Jose Uzcategui vs. Caleb Plant for the IBF super middleweight title. That broadcast averaged 761,000 viewers and drew a 0.16 household rating in the 18-49 demographic. FS1's next boxing card takes place on March 24 in Maryland. The main event of that card is a 12-round welterweight bout between former world champions Lamont Peterson and Sergey Lipinets.
Fightful lead boxing reporter Carlos Toro did a weekend recap podcast of the entire card including the prelim fight as well as the rest of the weekend's big boxing events from around the world. The video podcast can be seen in the video below.
