    Metal Gear Solid in 90’s blew my tiny little mind for stealth play. It was amazing. Sneaking up on guards, taking them out one by one. It was right up there with fingering girls in terms of enjoyment.

    Now confirmed to be a PPV on Sky, £9.95.

    Now, I don't know these "youtubers" but by all accounts they are massively popular in the YouTube and social media world, so maybe it will sell in big numbers. Still doesn't seem right to me that 2 complete novices are headlining a PPV boxing show.

    Their last fight was a ppv. On the same platform as the classic world heavyweight title fight between hughie fury and parker.

    £9.99 and if talk from Hearn about undercard being on normal sky i have zero issue with it all. Good luck to them and the kids who beg mum and dad to pay for this nonsense!!

    First I have heard about the undercard but If that is on normal Sky Sports I can live with that, if not I was half tempted to phone them ****ers up and “cancel” over this **** otherwise what are we paying for, the least I expect would be a nice fat discount to stop me.

    Tbh Billy Joe Saunders being on normal Sky is hardly enticing since the rumours of his potential opponent for the card have Rosado as the "best" of the bunch and it's an early morning fight anyway.

    Sky, Hearn and the two YouTubers will probably make some decent money out of this non-event so fair play to them but I hope this whole saga just lets people realise that Hearn only cares about money. Quite a decline in standards for Sky as well which is becoming farcical. I remember Sky and Matchroom personnel ripped the **** out Haye for attempting to launch a new promotion on the comedy channel Dave but at least he had a go and at least it was free to watch. Sky Sports have gone from classic PPVs featuring the best in the world to a couple of YouTubers with fake beef who would get destroyed by domestic journeymen. The same Sky and Matchroom clowns mock BT for putting Fury v Wallin on PPV but at least they are two legit pros who had a very entertaining boxing fight in the end.

    This fight, if you can call it that, will do many more buys than Fury v Wallin. It's a business. Hardcore snobby attitudes over boxing being a business is hilarious.

    Won't be buying it and think its a novelty event but really couldn't care less if anyone buys it and i am not sure why anyone else would care either.

    This man is Bill's opponent as scheduled on Boxrec. One of the most padded records I've seen. Welcome to the "big time" indeed.

    This is what Sky & Hearn have to do now with AJ losing.

    I feel like the same peole who are stupid enough to believe apples and pears from a council estate boy done good hearn, find shannon briggs funny, whereas Hearn was born with a silver spoon and done really well with it and fair play for him but can't believe the idiots for his normal bloke down the pub act

    This is doing huge numbers without any boxing fans, the fact it's even a boxing event doesnt really make a difference to the people who will but this.

    The tenner price tag does leave Hearn open to criticism when he charges £20 for a sub par PPV.

    Or does it justify it in that this isn’t even PPV worthy and at 3am. Would happily pay £20 for a decent boxing card compared to a tenner for this

    This is purely jumping on a bandwagon.

    Eddie talking in interviews about game plans and careers etc.

    Have to say he is absolutely vile. He would sell his wife for a night at the right price and then justify it as the right thing to do.

    He is a massive massive ****.
