    The card won't be rearranged. Whether anyone in the UK gets to see it (officially) live on TV is another story. The joys of fronting a site fee to the promoter but not sorting the TV deal at the same time...

    I think it's sad if we don't get the opportunity to watch the return fight on any TV channels / platform here in the U.K. I was ready to press the red button on my Sky remote.

    I was under the impression of it was part of my DAZN subscription as PPV was dead and AJ has signed a lifetime deal with DAZN.

    Perhaps there are some people from outside who have put pressure on Sky and made them withdraw their bid for Usyk vs Joshua II ?

    Maybe they surveyed people and realised in the current climate, it wouldn’t sell enough to cover the fee? Perfectly feasible they used the cooling off period of a rights deal to get out of it…

    Would be mad if this wasn’t on tele here.

    Would it be better for Joshua if millions of casual fans didn’t see him schooled again though? Out of sight and out of mind kind of thing, so although they may hear he’s lost it won’t be as dramatic for them as it would if they see it first hand. Many would even forget, probably better for Joshua that way.

    Be a laugh how many bans would be dished out on here for people mentioning streams to a fight we physically can't pay to watch!

    Don't know if there's anything in it but there were some comments saying that the Saudis were annoyed with Hearn about not getting full hype/coverage to maximize profits.

    Surely Eddie won't try to jeopardise the PPVs now that Sky have (supposedly) got the fight?
