    I doubt it would sell that many at any standard price. Sky might incentivise it but they'd probably want PPV to do that; doesn't make an awful lot of sense in the end.

    Wonder what contrived reason the promoters would make up to justify a rematch anyway? Eubank has tried the "once in a lifetime punch" chat but it's mostly been ignored in the mainstream media; if it's about the weight then it's not like Smith will go up from 160 anyway. Honestly can't see it, Smith would be better off fighting Benn.

    Wouldnt sell out the whole stadium, i:e 54,000 plus seats on the pitch. But could have a target of 25k say down at kop end bit of the main and kemlyn road stands (the side stands). But putting a ring in the middle and trying to sell whole thing would be a bit of an ask

    Ha theres quite a lot to do here, in fact theres quite a bit to do in lots of places north of watford, we have electricity and running water and everything.

    But yeh agree it wont sell out anfield better to set it up at one end (the kop) and try and do half. Thats what they done for bellew v makubu if i remember rightly at goodison
