Hayemaker was getting 4 times as many viewers as Froch while on ppv compared to Froch on free view.
Haye did three PPV's if my memory serves me correct:
Valuev - cagey fight but well received by fans.
Harrison - a stinker
Klitschko - v disappointing
I am not disputing that he brought in good viewing figures, but PPV was put on the back burner after his last two efforts. This has denied other fighters better revenue and also has harmed Sky long term.
