This is true. I just get the feeling the regime change at Sky will mean a higher degree of quality control when it comes to PPV boxing, similar to what we have seen with the saturday night show, and that many of you will be suprised at what we see.

Hearn needs the PPV to be a sucess more than he needs the PPV to be a profit. Haye vs Harrison/Klitscko got mega numbers but also mega complaints and pissed of customers. Sky and Hearn might be happier with 200,000 Happy punters than 400,000 unhappy ones in terms of PPVs long term future.
