Default Willl Khan do good business on PPV?

i think it could be wrong to put him in with a nobody for no title on PPV. if he was fighting for the europeon or world title, it would make great sense

I think hardly any boxing fans will pay for it but Khan has the ITV casual following who might pay for this one but I still can't see sales being great at all.

Everyone one on on the Amirfans forum will buy it, so Sky are guaranteed at least 3 ppv buys if you count Ironbull.

PPV is supposed to be reserved for the elite and Khan hasnt even been at domestic title level yet

I've yet to meet anyone who is willing to pay for this rubbish.

hardcore arthur and cook fans who can't make the show will buy the first ppv (so about 300).

not many of the casual itv khan fans will buy it. and obviously knowledgable fans with a shred of self-respect won't buy this ppv.

after doing a little survey at work, i couldn't find one taker, even the people who bought the last hatton ppv card weren't impressed with the value for money of this show

I will not watch this fight on PPV....

If I can boycott my fave fighters match with Lazcano then I really don't think i'll have much trouble turning this one down.

Personally the only British fighter i'd even consider shelling out for is David Haye and I just go and watch him instead.

This fight is an exhibition of downright greed on the part of Sky, the promoter and Khan. Sky are demonstrating just how little they care about the sport anyone with an ounce of knowledge knows this is a mismatch with absolutely zero intirgue factor.

The only Khan fights I would consider paying for are Pacman or Diaz.... And there is no chance of those fights ever happening. That ****** has decided to go back to sky is acknowledgement that he failed to do his job properly when he was given a golden oppertunity by ITV. He simply cannot put on a good show with the fighters he's 'invested' in.

His 'investing' method of matching his fighters with washed up former champions and no-marks has taken any sort of intrigue away for neutral fans. Decent fighters like Wayne Alexander meander on the outskirts of his undercards fighting outclassed opposition and occasionally getting chinned. Then you have the other side of the scale a series of 24-0 (8ko's) fighters who have yet to embark in one intersting fight in there 4 year careers- then get exposed by decentish class do it the hard way fighters like Choi.

Frank ******... no Sports Network are stripping away the foundations of what used to be a competitive sport. The greed of that outfit is ruining the sport as a spectacle and I hope for the sake of the long term lifespan of the sport Khan gets chinned, retires and Sports Network goes down the pan- at least for a while so someone with a bit of balls takes over the mantle of top UK promoter.

I would rather walk to London with a nail in my shoe than pay to watch the overrated chinny celebrity boxer fight yet another no mark!
