Same with Froch-Ward. No one in the UK has heard of Ward so for the fight to be PPV the Brit fighter would have to be a PPV fighter.

I'll stop now......
I'm trying to be an idealist...

In other words anything I'm writing is irrelevant to boxing.

The Germans simply wouldnt accept PPV - look at their attitude to football tickets - if you try to rip them off they simply wont show.

They have it the right way around, the customer calling the shots and the big wigs taking note. To a certain extent.

Bollocks.

If Mayweather said he wants Khan at the 02 arena in January, they'd be advertising PPV for that right now.

It's about 15 bucks a month and even less if you have it in a bundle.
