    Not sure how you post links or photos, but seems this is to be launched in 2022 with AJ vs Usyk being the first one.

    Price point looks to be £29.99, with existing DAZN customers likely getting it for £24.99.

    You may want to rename the thread something like Matchroom Boxing Cards if you wish it to remain on this page.

    There was a similar thread the other day and it was moved into the TV thread above.

    Just highlight the web link in the address bar, then copy and paste into your post mate.

    Surprised with £29.99 - must be an inflation increase for Tony Dosh to get his PPV Loot total over £500m

    One of the links above. Another one is DAZN asking subscribers would the pay £29.99 for Whyte vs Ruiz.

    This suggesting the £29.99 price point

    Pay more. For a lesser product. After they said they were trying to do the opposite.

    I wonder if Hearn knew about this before he left Sky.

    Hearn knows how to shaft people and he has this all well planned.

    He expects his cohort of Sky PPV Mugths to subscribe to DAZN UK for £7.99 per month and pay £30 for any fight he deems to be PPV.

    Phase 1 - £1.99 to reel them in.
    Phase 2 - £7.99 when subscriber targets reached.
    Phase 3 - drop the PPV bombshell late 2021
    Phase 4 - first PPV event March 2022 (Usyk v Joshua)
    Phase 5 - all decent fights become Box Office

    What he done on Sky is exactly what will be repeated on DAZN UK.

    Yes we have cracked it, the same old shyte but we pay £95.88 extra per year for it.

    My thread on this got booted to the TV thread. Apparently negative threads on DAZN break some sort of rule

    He has done a remarkable job roping in the ladbible/darts watching crowd to boxing but I feel he may be overestimating their appetite for boxing somewhat if he thinks he is going to enjoy the same success with this model. Sky was a big reason for Matchroom's success and vice versa. I can't see people paying extra and faffing about with apps in their droves for Nextgen plus the odd AJ fight.

    Time will tell I guess.

    Dazn will never ever have the power of sky sports news 24 /7 promotion and pulling casuals in. Think dazn made massive blunder here

    If this is the road Eddie is going down I think it may backfire.

    The reason he got away with making so many average fights as PPV was Sky's popular far reaching platform to build the fights up.

    Without Sky a lot of fights will go under the radar of the general public/ casuals.
    Even though the Joshua/Usyk rematch will do big numbers can't see him getting anywhere near the Sky PPV figures for future fights.

    His house of cards could come tumbling down if Joshua gets beat again. And isn't his other PPV favourite Whyte a free agent? If so there's nothing to stop him staying/going to Sky.

    I can also see top rank wanting to work with Sky just to get one over on Eddie

    Well presented Jurgen and a great point made by djfonti. Hearn did a splendid job fleecing people on sky but sky did the majority of the work with their quality productions.

    Hearn no longer has the sky platform, nor the stable of fighters he once had so he's got a big job on his hands to make boxing on DAZN a big success.

    Let's see if he really is "the best in the business" as he likes to describe himself.

    He's trying to con everyone.

    I know people say he's always been like this etc but I've noticed him become more of a salesman as the years have gone by. It stands out like a sore thumb now in his interviews.

    The way he constantly and repeatedly reeled of a list of AJs last 13 opponents and says who's got a resume like his? No one is fact checking what he says.

    The way he kept on saying next level production from DAZN, incredible TV production, no other broadcast team can match them, and game changing commentary team on DAZN. No one has asked him about this. What difference is there between DAZN and Sky.

    If you say something enough times, you eventually start to believe it.

    It also angers me that he's made Chisora and Whyte into PPV fighters. Dillian is prancing about in Portugal like he's some sort of killer heavyweight that deserves to be mentioned alongside Fury and Wilder.

    Chisora another mug who keeps having these amazing best ever training camps but turns up as a punchbag for 12 rounds on fight night, just to pick up his PPV loot.

    They're all cnts the lot of them.

    The only way I’d consider signing back up to DAZN is if there were 2 good UK shows a month.
    1 a month at the moment, when some of them are as bad as Kid vs Kiko with a terrible undercard, and having to pay £30 a pop for AJ fights on top of that is a complete joke.
