    Laughing at Matchroom FC under Bensons tweet defending their mate Eddie, they actually think he's "one of the boys" as he would like you to believe in these IFL interviews when in fact he could not care less as long as they part with their hard earned cash his work is done the fights can bomb for all he cares.

    Better put, the Whyte fight has contributed to the enabling of the price hike.

    "You've only got one main event to pay for now."

    I also wouldn't put it past him to say something like "You're getting Babic vs Little for free (with Sky subscription... but he wouldn't state that) when that card could've demanded £15 "

    Obviously that's expensive too but the difference is people know exactly what they're getting with that - two legends having an exhibition for a payday. People will pay for the spectacle because it's Tyson.

    The issue with the AJ fight is that it's a mismatch and sets a precedent of creeping pricing. If BT had charged £25 for the Fury vs Kabayal fight that would've been exactly the same.

    But Dubois v Joyce as opposed to AJ v Pulev? Let's be honest here, Pulev is past it and is nothing but a 1 trick pony and a very old one at that who struggled against Dinu and Rydell Booker lol, yes the same Rydell Booker that got smashed to bits by Hrgovic recently. Dubois v Joyce is the far more interesting fight which could go either way, AJ v Pulev is not an interesting fight where AJ will stop him mid rounds.

    Even the Bulgarians I spoke to, while on holiday, said Pulev had no chance, and that was over 3 years ago, before the cancellation!

    Haha! I don't know if you watch darts (I don't really, anymore) but Rob Cross says that all the time. He's an incredibly fair guy. Not a bad trait to have.

    I remember there not being much buzz around this fixture back then and I seem to remember Pulev not being that keen on the fight either - but I may have been propagated. Maybe most of that came from that video that was doing the rounds with Hearn talking to Pulev.

    I think part of the sell is that Joshua has now lost the aura of invincibility, so some may think this might be a challenge. I'm not one of them.

    700k PPV buys doesn't create £3.5 mil it creates £17.5 mil

    Sickening math skills there chief, only 14 million out

    25 notes to pay to watch Hughie the Skirt, then Laurence the Octopus followed up by Joshua giving a swift beating to an old man.

    I'd rather spend the money on a cam session with Jane Couch.

    He was multiplying 700k x the extra £5 = £3.5m.

    Bang on with their mathematics.
