It's taken £2million to get Kessler over here and he deserves every penny imo. If it means the fight is on PPV then that's fine with me, whatever it takes to get the fight made. It's one of the best, most even fights that can be made at the moment and it's not like we're paying out for PPV every month like they do in the US. In fact, what was the last PPV? Haye vs Klitschko? 18 months ago now.
Because calzaghe was a genuine star and ticket seller. Froch is not. Kessler also brought ppv money from his homeland. Kessler needs compensated for what he could earn at home. We're being expected to do that for Froch's unrealistic demands. That's wrong.
