Floyd Mayweather quaking? – Triller card ‘expected to shatter PPV records’
The PPV record held by boxing legends Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao is under threat, according to new kids on the block, Triller.
Their upcoming card, which sees a controversial entrepreneur WBN has covered in the past due to a controversial ranking by the World Boxing Association, takes place on Triller next month.
Joe Fournier, who amassed an 8-0 record against also-ran opponents but still gained a top ten rating, has been confirmed for a card topped by a YouTuber.
In a press release on Thursday, Triller said the, ‘Fight Card Expected To Shatter PPV Records at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta’ after Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. smashed into the top ten list last year.
FLOYD MAYWEATHER vs PACQUIAO
Floyd Mayweather currently holds the record Pay Per View sales for his battle with Manny Pacquiao in 2015.
At present, looking at the bill, which features boxers including Regis Prograis, Ivan Redkach, and Antonio Tarver, it’s not likely that Mayweather and Pacquiao are quaking in their boots, though.

Fournier won the vacant WBA International light heavyweight belt by defeating Wilmer Mejia in the Dominican Republic’s eighth round. With the win, he moved up to 11th in the rankings.
He made his debut in the light heavyweight division against Jorge Burgos in the Dominican Republic. Fournier then defeated Manuel Regalado and Pedro Sencion before stopping Bela Juhasz in London on May 21, 2016.
