Nice one, hope it is £14.99 as someone mentioned in an earlier post, £24.99 would be taking the piss, slightly.

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.
Unfortunately because people like you exist who will pay any amount they charge for the PPVs this will not discourage Sky from upping their cost.

I do agree though that it will be a shame if they do increase their costs because they might not drop them for other fights.

With Khan fighting on ITV the same night, I would not expect another big UK promotion being held on the 8th in the UK

Great idea - all in and laud as poss - **** the neighbours!

Its a good point about people paying for fights so they keep doing it but as a boxing fan what are you suppossed to do? Missing Hatton-PBF in protest is surely unthinkable?

Its going to be a bumper night of boxing, Khan Earl, Hatton Maywethaer, Daniel Ponce de leon, Jeff Lacy, El**** Abraham (if televised, if not streamed), Craig Mcewan, we'll be able to stream John Duddy who fights in ireland plus more to be announced.

Before that we have Calzaghe Kessler, Cotto Mosley, Haye Mormeck!

What a year for boxing.

No - Sky have bought it. The last one was on setanta becouse it was promoted by some bloke from sheffield but this one is Golden Boy, which gives sky first option.
