    Buatsi has confirmed his fight with Summers is off. And the Brook vs Cook news will be announced soon as well apparently. Reports say Brook has an ankle injury.

    Fights dropping like flies on the Whyte vs Parker card. And with it being only 2 weeks away, I'm expecting the replacements to be poor.

    Shambolic. The rumours of Brook’s injury have been there for almost two weeks. It this was Warren he’d be crucified.

    PPV for no title. Half the undercard are non runners. Brook clearly been left till the last moment. As you said Frank would get butchered

    Summers has withdrawn due to a medical issue. Not sure way the problem is but he hopes the fight can b remade

    They won’t announce the brook one till as late as possible just to try and make sure causal’s don’t get put off, this ppv is going to bomb.

    Hearn should offer Buglioni or Burton the Buatsi fight to help save the card-I understand Bug is on the card anyway. As Eddie was saying he wanted Joshua to fight Yarde and would even send him to BT, those fights shouldn’t be a problem!

    Let's do a Hearn impression, IFL Style..

    "Look Kugs, it's just two fights out of a stacked card, it's still great value for money if you compare it to what our rivals serve up, apples 'n' pears,

    We are trying to get Buatsi a late replacement because he has worked so hard in the gym and is a genuinely nice guy but nobody wants to fight him and certainly not on short notice, apples 'n' pears, so I will have to pay over the odds to get him a fight but we believe in him so I'll do all I can.

    Kugs, Chisora Vs Takam is a really good fight, wouldn't you agree Kugs?

    Conor Benn in a rematch that could be FOTY, its a fight he didn't have to take but he wanted to give the fans a great fight, apples 'n' pears..

    Yeah I understand fans will be disappointed but personally I always believed Whyte Vs Parker was a stand alone PPV fight anyway, apples 'n' pears, its a great fight, two top 5 heavyweights, this really should be a word title fight, let's remember Kugs that Wilder didn't want to fight Whyte for multies, Parker is game and wants the big fights.. compared to dealing with Shirley Winkle this was so so easy to make because both men are absolute beasts and want the tough tests.

    There is a possibility the winner fights AJ in April if Wilder won't sign, it's all down to Shirley Winkle now, we have done all we can our side..

    Oh yeah, let's not forget Katie Taylor in a world title fight, oranges 'n' lemons, she's amazing, we want to get her back to Ireland soon.. apples 'n' pears....

    No Kugs, no refunds, it's too close to the fight to start doing all that and it's still a great night of boxing.

    Is that it? We done? Oh the battery is going in the camera? OK Kugs, see you on the 28th... Shirley Winkle, apples 'n' pears, oranges 'n' lemons".

    This card was never PPV material and never will be - hope the mugs wake up and stop buying these PPVs making Tony Bellew and Toe types multi millionnaires

    Dear oh dear oh dear

    This card shouldn’t have been ppv in the first place tbh, Hearn is pretty good at getting a good replacement fight

    Buatsi vs buglioni or burton would make perfect sense

    If not he needs to put this on normal sky sports

    I agree with you and @Jurgen

    It isn't PPV worthy but it won't be changed now, purses would have been based on the fact it was PPV.

    I have a feeling this could really bomb though.

    It deserves to bomb and those that buy it deserve all they get, maybe they will then wake up and realize that being a fan of boxing shouldn't have a clause as to you have to fund their lifestyles.
