Default Hearn mentioning PPV

Anyone noticed Hearn mention PPV a couple of times in the last few weeks?

I've noticed it on some of ifilmlondon's vids.

He said Froch Kessler is a PPV fight and if that cant happen then they'll go to Denmark, cant remember exactly which vid this was but I'll try and find it. Also in tonight's post fight presser with Brook he said he believes Brook will become a PPV fighter.

Looks as though Eddie is hinting at Sky to bring back PPV, potential rift if Sky keep their current stance.

That should be the longterm aim for him personally. He'll get it too but he'll probably need to guarantee a solid undercard with maybe another world title to get SBO

If Brook picks up this title from alexander and froch fights bute or kessler again, no reason why a card with both of them on it wouldn't be box office to be honest.

I'd pay 15 to watch these two fights on the same ppv, with a good undercard as well.

Wouldn't pay for either separately. Not about the money, it's about the principle and the fact we've been stung with shit undercards. Afolabi vs Dunstan as only undercard fight springs to mind. Shocking!

Yeah, I'd have no problem paying for both on the same night.

Froch - Bute II is borderline PPV. I don't mind paying for the odd night just as long as it doesn't get silly again, Groves - Degale springs to mind.

As long as the cards are really special, I'll be happy to pay PPV moneys, as long as Eddie only does it every 6-12 months I don't see a problem.

Cant see it for Brook vs Devon IMO.....Alexander not a big enough name to the casuals in the UK.

Kessler vs Froch is a worthy PPV, but doesnt look like happening IMO, Kessler wanting too much coin.

Can only see it happening for any of the triangle of Brook Khan an Hatton squaring off against each other to really get PPV back on Sky.

youve not seen much of alexander then and as for your comment about froch i have no idea what your point is, hes lost to the best? would you like him more if he lost to a couple of journeymen? froch is a ****in warrior and one of the best fighters britain's produced

considering Alexander was paid $600,000 for his challenge against Bailey and ovrr $1 million for both Maindana and Bailey I don't see how they can get him over here withou the supposed Box office money

I also think he wants it to enable him to have Sky Sports Bills with the other fighters headlining. PPV for Froch/Brook and Sky Sports for likes of Purdy,Barker, Rees and co. I suspect it would give him more shows basically?.

This is exactly what I'd expect to pay 15 for.

You get the location right, this could be held in a stadium and generate a lot of money.

Anyone know any recent ppv subscription figures? Haye vs Wlad for example?
