Default Re: How would you re-invent Sky Box Office PPV

Some good answers in here already, and I agree with Oli here about this fight.

Yes its a good fight but It's not the mega fight its bein made out to be. Nobody got this stiff of a ***** over their first fight so i don't quite understand it to be brutally honest.

If it has to be on ppv, first of all the price should be a tenner or less. Secondly the fight should be massive. Huge. Froch and Kessler on PPV? **** off. Most of the Pacquiao fights, Marquez fights, and even Mayweather fights are on Sky 1. Froch and Kessler on ppv is a joke. This isn't Tyson Lewis, or Mayweather Pacquiao FFS. Most people in this country don't know who Kessler is. Froch is not exactly a superstar either. Under card better be good also.

The presentation also has to be a lot better. If they're gonna put a fight on PPV, they better have a good build up show, good music, lighting, highlights, footage from the dressing rooms of each fighter, a good amount of post fight ****ysis, no ad breaks between rounds- keep quite and let us hear what the trainers are saying, and for ****s sake, stop apologizing for the language, you ****s. Sky can't compete with the budget of HBO so we're unlikely to get a slick, classy experience with good pundits. Instead we'll have to put up with an atmosphere that resembles a glorified sports hall and those clowns Nelson, Piper, Smith and McCrory.
