    I’m kind of split on the whole PPV argument.

    No this fight, and Chisora vs Parker aren’t really pay per view fights. However they are likely to be good fights, and certainly the card on Saturday is one of the stronger cards in recent times.

    In the current climate, I have no issue paying for it. There’s nothing else I can do on Saturday. Can’t go to the pub or out so I will pay for it - what else am I spending that £20 on?

    In other times, whilst I’ll grumble, I normally pay it. It’s the cost of 4/5 pints and if I stay at home I’m not paying that so I save money by not going out and just staying in. At the end of the day it’s not like the states where they pay between $50-$100 for a PPV, we’re not that unlucky.

    Mate it's not £20 anymore. It'll be close to £35 for AJ v Fury which is nearly 50 dollars.

    I dont see how this fight is any worse than many of the other recent PPVs

    You could even argue that as a rematch,this represents some value from the perspective that the first fight was a shock and that this is revenge or repeat.

    Everyone saw that vicious KO and has their views on whether it will be repeated.

    No world title fight, no elite fighters so I am not watching either.

    I will watch the cards on BT Sport both Friday and Saturday evening.

    To be honest, this is a very strong card. I wouldn't mind paying for it, but I'm 17 so have never paid for a PPV before :D

    Actually looking forward to this card. Friends with Fabio, so very interested in seeing him take another step up, all be it against a very faded Molina. That said, no intention of paying for it.

    For me it's not about money it's about principle. I'm not paying £20 to watch a 41 year old has been that got iced by AJ fight a domestic level British HW who has become consumed with greed and refuses to fight unless he's the main event of a PPV in fact Whyte is arguably not even domestic level anymore, the British champ is Joe Joyce and I think most would put their money on Joe if he were to fight the Deluxe Pudding.
    But if you have the money and have no issue with supporting this greed fueled insanity then go for it, it's all about personal choice.

    In fairness to see that fight I’d happily pay it.
