I thought the Haye fight had pushed them close to 200,000?!

But lots of the new subs for the Haye fight had a minimum sub period did they not? Like 6 months?

No they didn't as far as I'm aware.

However, when F.W. did an interview recently he suggested something like 200,000.

F.W. was speaking nonsense, or that's gone down to 30,000 has it?

Longcount, who, let's be honest, is a much more reputable source, said that BoxNation was at 30,000 subscribers in May. It's certainly not hard to believe they've improved on that figure substantially since Haye-Chisora. Frank also recently said they were 'well ahead' of schedule with regards to subscription levels.

Khan-McCloskey did 70k on Primetime and Khan has never been a PPV star.

Haye is, and his fight with Chisora garnered a lot of attention in the mainstream media. Plus it was a domestic, heavyweight grudge match - the biggest fight of the year in this country.

I would be very surprised if it only brought in 120,000 new subscribers.

Obviously.

But it helps if people say where their claims are coming from...

Don't think so. BoxNation say they are trying to get it.

F. W.: "The last Prizefighter on Sky, go and look at the ratings-- it got less than 100,000 viewers. That's 50% of our audience at the moment. And it goes up, it went right up for the Chisora fight..."

Tris Dixon: "That indicates that you are around the 200,000 mark."

F. W.: "Well I will leave you to sort the math out, but the fact of the matter is we are really really pleased where we are."
