Hatton did that when he fought Mayweather and Pac, as far as I know. But then, we're talking a different planet in terms of revenue - even half of what Hatton was bringing in was monstrous.
Sky isn't looking at making that sort of cash out of this fight, so Eddie won't get the same deal. Like I say, he'll be lucky to get £3 a sale.
For somebody that is so hot on posters backing things up with credible information, you did a great job at pulling £3 out of your arse.
I will refer back to the email I received this week from somebody who reads these forums that told me "That DFTaylor doesn't have a clue what he is talking about when it comes to TV"
