    Both past their best, shouldn’t be anywhere near PPV but as a Saturday night domestic dust up it would be a cracker, last chance saloon for both men, some real hatred. It would be great.

    When you look at the Warrington vs Awad purse I think that’s more than reasonable for Khan Brook, they don’t deserve more and the former is on Saturday night tv.

    Both should retire, if they do try putting this fight on a PPV card then I couldn't see it being the main event as there both near the end of their careers.

    Is the Warrington fight on BT Sports or rolled up on BT Box Office with PED Fury v Unbranded Pudding?

    It's not happening and Amir Khan is the reason. Too egotistical to risk being knocked out by a Brit.

    Still listed as BT sports 1. Ironically this is more PPV worthy than the later card.

    It will still pull decent money as people would watch, i wouldn't care for it but plenty would

    I reckon this will be Hearn's go to fight if Joshua loses again, as Khan said all along he is the name in this fight and to be fight he is right, he is still getting big fights, big money and that bumper pay day for that Pakistan fight

    Jesus if Canelo batters Smith, Joshua loses again, puts Hearn in a position where he hasn't really got any big names. Smith isn't really that well known

    Smith Canelo is a year away (May next year), I’m sure he’s hoping by that time one of his current young crop are up to the task. Buatsi and Córdoba for example, he’s also trying to co promote Taylor, Okolie could be in a world title fight with Lebedev.

    I’m also of the believe he’s signed the McCormacks and Peter McGrail for after the olympics. That’s not concrete though.

    Plus his USA stable is pretty solid. I didn’t realise how strong it was until I was doing the list of world champions with hattonmad.

    Nope.

    Besides both being past it, Brook is in no-man's land with his career and Khan won't ever take the fight.

    Its a fun fight between two shot fighters that dislike each other. Khan will engage i think it will be entertaining. Lets get it on!

    Assuming the above happens, and Campbell gets destroyed by Lomachenko... In the UK, his only names with mass market appeal to the casual audience would be Dillian Whyte (and I'm not even sure he is Matchrooom anymore?) and then after that I genuinely think you're looking at Dave Allen! In effect, outside of Tyson Fury, PPV boxing involving UK fighters would be dead.

    As for Brook Vs. Khan, I think with the Sky hype machine going into overdrive, they'd fill Manchester Arena/The 02 - and maybe pop a decent PPV buyrate (250k-ish) - but the days of this fight filling a stadium are long gone, they're both broken - mentally and physically. I'd end up paying £20 to watch on box office, but I'd like to think I wouldn't be suckered in to actually attending.
