So how could you get a name like Kessler over to the UK for a unification on regular Sky?

Was it on Primetime?

No way man, I dont remember that.

Oh dear, that means the rematch will be at least 14.95 PPV on Sky Box Office, with an insulting and terrible undercard to go with it. PPV Prizefighter anybody? Anybody? Anybody?

.....Nobody?

They'd shift more if they made it cheaper, ie between 5 and 10.

IMO they'd make more money that way from the casual fans as 15 is a bit steep unless its a marquee name like Hatton and Lewis were.

That's exactly my point. Eddie can't afford it.

Don't know what it has to do with Hearn. Any other British promoter would face the exact same situation. If Froch was promoted by any other British promoter who had the same deal with Sky, it would be the same.

The purses have to be paid for out of the money generated for that fight? Promoters are not going to pay for purses that surpass the money made by the fight.

So the options will be use PPV, come up with a system that has yet to be invented by anyone else in sports broadcasting history, or don't have the fight.

I'm not a fan of PPV by any stretch of the imagination - but it has obviously become a necessary evil to generate the revenue required to set up certain fights in this country. I can stomach it if it is used purely as a means of making fights that others wise would not be made for financial reasons - the only problem is it soons turns in to a way of fleecing the sportsfan who already pays through the nose for multiple sports channel subscriptions.

Better fight than than the last PPV Saint Eddie had an hand in, Haye-Harrison. Didn't take Sky long to do a 180 on the "no PPV" policy either.

Just long enough for the masses to have forgotten about the last time they paid for a pile of ****.

Hearn said he has nothing to do with the undercard.
