The sizzling “Pinoy Pride XX” fight card at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu last Saturday has turned in good ratings especially for the main event in which WBO International light welterweight champion Jason “El Nino” Pagara retained his title with an impressive twelve round decision over talented Mexican banger Aaron “ The Jewel” Herrera.
The ratings for Total Philippines according to Kantar Media was 13.3 percent which put the program at No. 8 on the top-rated Sunday shows when the fights were telecast on ABS-CBN Channel 2.
However, the Pagara-Herrera title fight rated 14.5 percent while the ten round non-title bout in which undefeated Genesis Servania won by a 4th round knockout of Isack Junior of Inodnesia rated 9.7 percent.
Overall, the Urban Philippines rating for “Pinoy Pride XX,” the series presented by ALA Promotions in cooperation with ABS-CBN registered 11.0 percent while Rural Phillipines turned in a much higher rating of 16.4 percent.
