Well ****** said in his piece in The Sun today 30,000 have been sold. He may of given away 20,000, but I doubt that... Yet!

It is a lot of money to pay for an unknown, unproven fighter at this level (in Kessler), on like you said a bill that is still to be made.

I think ****** may need to import a couple of big names on the undercard to prop this up or he is going to lose a lot of money, because with Santana he is not going to make a huge amount on pay per view sales either...
