    Frampton Warrington does nowhere near 150k.
    Does 60-70 at best. SSN all that Week, which all casuals watch, will just be full of Whyte Chisora build up and no mention of Frampton Warrington. In fact most won't even know there is another fight on.

    Whyte Chisora with a solid undercard does 500k. Doesn't even have to be solid, Kell Brook In a tune up when the Amir fight doesn't come off, a couple of his Oympians and probably Fielding and Katie Taylor.
    I'd be watching the Warrington fight personally, but just my opinion.

    I fancy it too do 100k-150k and Whyte vs Chisora too do about 300k-400k, both probably nearer the low side but I wouldn’t be surprised if it hit the higher estimation.

    You’ll have all of Frampton and Waringtons fan base either at the fight or buying the ppv then you’ll have a good number of hardcore fans buying it too.

    Maybe I’m overestimating the size of there fan base but we’ll just have too wait and see haha

    BT will probably push it during some football games which will likely help, especially given Warrington has a big football following

    Warrington vs Frampton will do around 75,000 buys I reckon

    Whyte vs Chisora between 150,000-200,000.

    I'll be watching Frampton/Warrington. Two of our best fighters going at it in a world title fight. Should be a cracking atmosphere as well. Whyte vs Chisora is a joke and shouldn't be a PPV.

    Apparently one man's "joke of a fight" is the boxing industries "fight of the year 2016"

    I wonder who's opinion carries more weight... hmmm

    Can see BT putting it on their normal channel with a rather underwhelming undercard to save money if both cards are on the same night.

    I have more sympathy with Frank on this one- there isn’t much need/desire for a Chisora/Whyte PPV before Christmas other than from Hearn and Sky. They could easily delay it until February 2019 when the landscape would be less crowded.

    The amount of PPVs is getting ridiculous- there could be as many as seven before Christmas if the WBSS follows a similar contract with ITV.

    They can’t delay Whyte Chisora until February as he’s lined up to face AJ in April. Warrington v Frampton however could be put back so why is there always sympathy of Frank and criticism of Eddie?

    I do agree with you on the amount of PPV’s though. It is ridiculous and I don’t think neither one of these fights warrants a PPV.

    1. Chisora is past it, he's only in it for the money
    2. There's no title on the line, just a general grudge match
    3. Whyte should be fighting Miller and Ortiz
    4. Their original fight was nearly 2 years ago
    5. Warrington is a legitimate world champion, something neither Whyte or Chisora have ever been

    Chisora will win if he and Whyte fight again. I suspect Whyte does not really want it.

    Lol Chisora/Whyte will do WAY more than that.

    I'll be paying my ppv money for that, much rather watch the big boys beat the **** out of each other than a couple of zero personality midgets.

    Frampton v Warrington on any date will be lucky to do 100k.

    Hahaha. If them ‘zero personality midgets’ were under the Matchroom banner you’d have a semi on over that fight.

    It’s a potentially amazing, high skilled match-up. Can’t wait.
