    And now Hearn's plan has been unfurled,
    The rotter means to troll the world,
    He's planting seeds with cheeky quips,
    Destroying rivals from his lips,

    What can we do to save Ol Frank?
    His stable's done one to Top Rank,
    His comeback's weaker than once thought,
    This fight could bankrupt BT Sport,

    As Eh Day laughs at Worry leaving old Frank
    He nips to the Matchroom Loo for a quick Tommy Tank
    Frank will have him in front of a Jury
    Should he try to poach the great Tyson Fury

    Couldn't care less about the politics of boxing & Hearn or Warren - This is exactly the type of fight we want to see. I couldn't care less about Joshua flying to Saudi fighting an overweight cash grab of a fight versus Ruiz Jr I want to see the best fight the best. I will happily pay for a PPV when the best ranked fighters fight the best in their division ONLY. Any of Wilder vs Fury / Joshua or Joshua vs Fury is worthy PPV always. Chisora / Whyte etc sorry not unless you are challenging for the title vs one of the above 3

    This will bomb, 25£ with no undercard at 4am? Lol

    Both camps know it too, Fury just wants Wilder's WBC belt to set up money fight vs Joshua.

    The big money for the fight will be made in America at $79 per PPV. UK PPV is bonus money and BT have to cough up said bonus money whether they make it or not because sky made a big offer for the fight that BT have to at least match.

    If BT can't make good money with this fight they might as well give up on PPV.

    I think the problem is the amount they've had to guarantee to get the fight.

    They had to match a big bid from Sky, who made a large bid knowing if they won they had the subscriber base to cover their costs.

    That left BT Sport between a rock and a hard place. They had invested so much in Fury that they had to get this fight, but the price they've paid is likely to make it a Pyrrhic victory.
