Plus, the PPVs sell because of casual fans, not the hardcore mob on forums like this. It's no coincidence that Hatton v Mayweather and Haye v Valuev drew such large numbers when there was an interest to the general public.

Froch v Kessler does very little for the casual fan, he isn't known outside of Nottingham or solid boxing fans. Admittedly people will remember Kessler from the Calzaghe fight, but you can bet the average casual fan on the street would much rather buy Haye v Ruiz.

This suggests to me it won't be on sky, as Hennessy will want to garner every penny he can by putting it on PPV-see the Taylor webstream and Dirrell on an obscure PPV channel and I just can't see sky having 2 Box Office fights in 3 weeks.

Hennessy said the Primetime deal "was a good one" before the Dirrell fight, so I'd expect them again.

EDIT: But i bet it won't be announced today.

Expected to be on Primetime according to Froch's local rag - let's hope that's lazy journalism

According to someone seemingly "in the know" on boxrec, as well as Froch v Kessler, primetime will be showing Artur Abraham v Andre Dirrell on March 6th and Wladimir Klitschko v Eddie Chambers on March 20th.

Also according to this gomez fellow...

The payment issue/activation system has been done away with. You can pay through screen and activation is instant. Without telephone line needing to be connected.

Primetime news site on its way and heap of other fights too.

No virgin yet, but otherwise some big strides being made behind the scenes and all will come out in the wash.
Could be quite interesting IF it all turns out to be true. Gotta be pissed if your on Virgin though.

he's 0 and 3 for me!

1. Froch vs Kessler, firstly u want it in the uk, especially with Froch having a victory, and kessler not having one, what do u we get? In Denmark!
2. Get it in Copenhagen, where i can get on a plane from the airport, catch a taxi to the hotel, to the fight, back to the hotel, back home!, what do u we get? in some far corner of lapland, where to watch it, u've gotta take reindeers!
3. Get a decent Tv deal, where maybe some of my firends who arent into boxing, and maybe want a taster of a decent fight, one which could be a potential gateway into becoming fans, can watch, what do we get? A dreadul ppv service, whch let me down badly online last time!

Fat mick takes a big L for this one!
