The first of those shows came on 30th December when Ohashi put on a great card on Fuji TV. This card, oddly, has 2 figures for it. The better figure is 8.3%, that was how many people tuned in to watch Olympic champion Ryota Murata (6-0, 4) in his bout against Jessie Nicklow. In terms of raw numbers that's around 10.5 million people tuning in to see the Middleweight hopeful, who put in a less than thrilling effort. The other figure that we've seen for the show, was for the bout that saw Naoya Inoue (8-0, 7) destroy Argentinian veteran Omar Andres Narvaes and claim the WBO Super Flyweight title. That figure was 7.6% of the population, or around 9.6 million viewers, an incredibly number that was likely diminished some what by just how quickly Inoue took out Narvaez.
The following day featured a pair of televised shows.
The most successful of those was the TBS televised card which featured Hisashi Amagasa (28-5-2, 19) fighting against Guillermo Rigondeaux and Kazuto Ioka (16-1, 10) fighting against Jean Piero Perez. This card got an amazing 9.0% of the audience, which we've been told was around 11 million, not the widely reported 30 million. For 30 million the channel would have had to have had around around 24% on the viewing population.
The other show, televised on TV Tokyo, saw a trio of Watanabe fighters in world title fights with the main event being a bout featuring Takashi Uchiyama (22-0-1, 18). This show got an audience share of 5.6%, a solid figure considering that it was being aired at the same time as the TBS card, which hard a much more attractive main event. In terms of raw numbers that would give the TV Tokyo card a figure of around 7 million viewers.
