Mikey Garcia watches highest-rated Thursday night game in NFL history

Four-division champion appears at Dallas Cowboys-New Orleans Saints game at AT&T Stadium—the site of his March 16 FOX PPV showdown vs Errol Spence Jr.

Last week's FOX NFL game between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints registered the highest ever rating for a Thursday night game since the inception of Thursday Night Football in 2014. The Cowboys' 13-10 victory over the Saints, which emanated from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, drew a 14.6/25 share in overnight ratings according to Nielsen Media Research.

It also featured an appearance by four-division world champion Mikey Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs), who will fight IBF welterweight titleholder Errol Spence Jr. (24-0, 21 KOs) at AT&T Stadium on a PBC on FOX pay-per-view card on March 16.

"Great win tonight, Cowboys! I’ll see you guys here on March 16," said Garcia, who posted a picture of himself and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on social media.

Spence was featured in a Thanksgiving Day game on FOX, where his hometown Cowboys defeated the Washington Redskins 31-23. That contest drew almost 30.5 million viewers.

“This shows the power of the partnership between PBC and FOX as our boxers get a chance to appear on highly rated NFL games and their upcoming fights are featured during those broadcasts," said Tim Smith, VP of Communications for Haymon Boxing. “It truly is a win/win for all involved.”
