Big pay-per-view event on Saturday night Nov. 14 on HBO, B&C reports.

It was a big fight night from Las Vegas, headlined by the welterweight title bout between
Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto.

HBO raked in 1.25 million pay-per-view buys–the most for 2009–and HBO earned $70 million in revenue. The split between satellite and cable households was roughly even, 650,000 cable and 600,000 satellite and telcos.

HBO plans to rebroadcast the title championship match on November 21 at 10 p.m.
