Default How much will Hatton vs Mayweather cost.

There has been a lot of talk that the fight will cost 24.99 instead of the usual 14.99. This will be an absolute piss take of true.

I will pay it but i have been with Sky for years, me and my dad have bought every Boxing PPV they have had since Tyson vs Holyfield.

If true they better have a good undercard in Vegas, be showing the Abraham vs El**** fight and a good card from the UK with Witter and a few others.

They dont need 3 cards, they can get away with charging £24.99 for the one, everyones going to pay it. For the 'proper' boxing fans Daniel Ponce de leon is scheduled to be added to the card and LAcy vs manfredo has been mooted too. Supply and demand isnt it, also, I bet they've had to pay a kings ransom to secure the deal.

Look on the brightside, US had to pay $50 for Roy Jones Jr Vs ... errrm... the prince guy, cant remember his name.

Yer its true, I hate it but what am I gonna do - miss it in protest? **** that! At the end of the day if they charge 50 or 60 quid im still gonna pay it. Im afraid thats the way its all going now.

Got us by the short and curlies. I think I'll be buying it from a trader instead of paying £25 and sky plusing it (as im out in vegas but want the fight when I get home).

Im sure the Danes are paying £35 for Calzaghe Kessler.

Mine is long and straight!

25 does seem like a rip off but I look at it this way - If Hatton pulls off a win we get to witness a piece of british sporting history, priceless!

There's no way I'll be paying for this. I usually buy all the PPVs but I have to make a stand when SKY ask for £25!

25 for a fight on TV at 4 in the morning? We cannot let them get away with this.

I know where your coming from, but theres no way I wouldnt pay £25 to see the fight. Write them a "dissapointed" e-mail, maybe a letter... but not buy it - no chance.

Also, edit a comment I made earlier, its infact £45 for Calzaghe Kessler in Denmark.

Good thinking. Also, if there are 6 of you, everyone chuck a fiver or a tenner in and pick a round from the hat - winner takes all. If you want to be more elaborate chuck 26 results in, everything form Mayweather Ko1 to hatton pts and a draw ... you get the diea anyway.

Get it streamed if you are too tight to pay £25.
