Hayemaker caused more damage than good, the man who killed PPV boxing on Sky. Think Sky can survive without him somehow.

BoxNation freeview the Bunce Hour.

Ringside for free on youtube is not a big deal.

You're an idiot. Hayemaker did monster numbers for Sky several times and made Sky boxing huge amount of wonga. Haye is British boxing. He's the star, he calls the shots. Look at these jokers Amir Khan and Froch pathetically trying to take over his mantle. They're either getting brutally KO'd by journey men or nobody cares about them to even bother watching them.

Hayemaker was getting 4 times as many viewers as Froch while on ppv compared to Froch on free view.

Haye did three PPV's if my memory serves me correct:

Valuev - cagey fight but well received by fans.

Harrison - a stinker

Klitschko - v disappointing

I am not disputing that he brought in good viewing figures, but PPV was put on the back burner after his last two efforts. This has denied other fighters better revenue and also has harmed Sky long term.

In the case of the Harrison fight, isn't that partly Sky's own fault? Didn't Sky want the fight?
