Excellent TV ratings for Pinoy Pride XIX
It’s evident that the Pinoy Pride series has captured the imagination of Filipino boxing fans, with the latest ratings of the 19th edition staged in Davao City reinforcing the show’s standing as a widely watched program both nationwide and internationally, with The Filipino Channel particularly in the Middle East.
Headlined by the World Boxing Organization Intercontinental featherweight championship between Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista and Mexico’s Jose Ramirez, Pinoy Pride XIX, telecast on Channel 2 from 9:45 a.m. to 12 noon last Sunday, registered a national rating of 17 percent, with a highest rating of 30.4 percent in Rural Mindanao.
In the Visayas, the fights turned in a rating of 20.2 percent, while in Mindanao, the program generated a 25.5 percent rating.
Mega Manila registered a rating of 12.5 percent, while Central Luzon registered 10.1 percent.
However, South Luzon reported a high 18.5 percent while the lowest rating of 6.8 percent was reflected in Urban Central Luzon.
The next Pinoy Pride, to be held at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu, is expected to keep the TV ratings’ momentum going when WBO International Lightweight champion Jason “El Niño” Pagara battles dangerous Mexican slugger Aaron Herrera on May 25 in the 20th edition of the series staged by the ALA Promotions, in cooperation with ABS-CBN.
