All for the price of two or three pints and a ruby....on top of your subscription.

PPV is sharp practice.....I wonder if this fight will be included in Matchrooms contracted for the year total?

This was so obvious that it was going to happen.

Hearn openly admitted months ago that he needed PPV to secure Kessler's signature.

he's being paid 2 million for this fight and ticket sales alone won't even cover that.

This will definatly be on ppv eveyone needs to come to terms with that.Like someone said this fight and Khan-Brook are the only two fights they should even think for ppv,hopefuly they will have a decent undercard and it will shit on the recent ppv`s.This is Froch-Kessler a fight which will be worth 15 quid of anyones money if you have any interest in boxing.The money Hearn will have to pay Kessler makes ppv inevetable also Froch deseves a decent payday here.

What a bunch of zombie ....its just so easy to sell fights in this day and age. The casuals knew who Audley was because of the Olympics, they hated his guts, yet get brainwashed every fight into thinking "This is it"....so although they hated the man, they were captivated. Audley sold fights, he was a magician. The casuals knew who David Haye was, because of the pin up tabloid boy he was. So the fight sold itself. Especially when the hype train got going and people genuinely thought Harrison was gonna do it. He fooled everyone, he fooled the zombies! Good on him I say!

Some of the casuals might know of Carl Froch, but I can assure you they wont have a clue who Kessler is.

So Harrison vs. Haye was deserving of PPV. Carl Froch vs. Mikkel Kessler is not.

Not surprising.

Hearn said last year that to enough money to make this fight in this country in a big arena it'd have to be PPV.

If you need ppv to cover costs, you're working the wrong model with the wrong attractions.
