Just thinking out loud but isn't there talk of HBO/Showtime being interested in Froch/Kessler? Then maybe Froch/Kessler would be on a US friendly time and on the same PPV as a Bika/Bute fight. A split venue USA PPV if you will
No way will this sell on a PPV basis in North America.It would have to be an afternoon fight if Froch is being carried live from the UK.Afternoon fights will not sell here.It would have to be carried by an HBO broadcast and with a replay again later that same day in the evening-but they wont throw big bucks at this promotion.
