    Eddie needs to put his money where his mouth is .. make Adam a good offer ... Adam is the champion in this situation.. If they want it seriously and put a serious offer Adam will take it , Adam is gifted if he can't beat the likes of Dalton then he never going to become a world champion, the type of world champion he wants to be multi division Dalton is solid but Adam is special.

    Even at this early stage of Adam's career he boxes rings around Dalton and stops him late on ..

    Hearn talking about Hillsborough. Have a day off ffs. Smith has been doing about 2000 tickets in the arena and people from Sheffield barely know he's fighting.

    Blimey. You do realise it’s posturing for a purse bid. You have to look like you are going in heavy to make sure Azim doesn’t pull out as he wants a payday and boxxer if they don’t force him out have to go in heavy,

    Eddie knows the numbers for the fight. If boxxer pay big money he’s more than happy for Dalton to take it on Sky and take out their biggest prospect

    He will bid atleast over 5 times Adam’s biggest payday. Adam will not be allowed to take that fight particularly if it goes to pursebids and there is a chance it’s on DAZN. Ramadan will fall in the way and they will move Adam to some sort of ranking position and say he’s targeting world honours.

    Let me guess, if Matchroom win = its a great succees, massive show etc

    If Boxxer win = they have massively overpaid, dont have a clue what they are doing etc

    Yawn

    Nope. If its promoted right with well thought out undercard its a great fight night. Matchroom will not overpay though, hence the comment they are happy with it going to Sky. There is a very concious effort to make sure as many events as possible on DAZN make financial sense and not emotional sense. 2 years ago this Catterall vs Taylor happens on DAZN. The money Taylor wants for that fight is the equivalent of 300k buys. Taylor did 176k buys on his last UK PPV. If he hits the number fair play to all involved but Matchroom an DAZN dont want silly risk.

    DAZN's analytics know very well what fights are worth now.

    These the same financial analytics that have helped them announce Billion pound losses year on year? Sounds ace

    I'm with Trafford on this one. The whole point of a streaming platform is to know exactly what people are watching, when they churn or return, what offers work for them, etc. DAZN was born from a data analytics group in the first place, the TV coverage was almost secondary.

    Until they're at the kind of scale they are on the public markets and have to reveal their numbers as price-sensitive information, they will carry on. The entire point of tech companies like this is to sustain themselves until the scale makes it pay off.

    A mate of mine works with Netflix making documentaries purely on the data generated there; he looks for specific global audiences, mostly makes documentary films, and knows exactly what they're worth. Netflix pay up for worldwide rights very happily.

    Go read up on the accounts of any streaming platofrm numbnuts. Particularly those in the first 10 years of trading.

    Its really incredible what they come up with. Not just DAZN but the levels of analytics means they can essentially say that the cost of certain shows is a no go for them. But you have hit the nail on the head

    Saw it on the inside at Amazon Prime. £30m for things like the Grand Tour or one night's Premiership football on Boxing Day sounds nuts in theory, but when the data suggests enough renewals to pay back £90-100m then the cost is trivial. But not something to be repeated forever.

    The only concern for DAZN is the ability to reach day-to-day operating profit and service any debts it's carrying; if it gets there and looks like it's still growing then there will be plenty takers at a high future value and the investors will be fine.

    Believing you win this and taking the risk is 2 different things.
