    Haha, Excellent work by Eddie Hearn once again.

    Be better to just drop the price and not bother with the undercard (Shanny aside of course)

    In the UK?

    I could be way off here but someone told me that licensed premises need to buy into a special "DAZN Business" account or something along them lines in order to show the fights........ and most pubs don't have it (as they already buy into SKY, BT etc for the footy).

    If that is the case, they are again missing out on a huge market of casual pub goers who will watch the fight.

    Yes in the UK

    The owner is a DAZN UK subscriber, pays the same as any other DAZN UK subscriber and confirmed he has already added the Benn v Eubank fight to his subscription.

    If there is another way then he is obviously unaware along with the general population.

    Does anyone know if you’re out of the country but you have a DAZN UK account whether you’re going to have to pay for PPV or not?

    If not I might re-subscribe this week.

    Away with the missus and may watch on my phone if she’s asleep as it’ll be gone midnight for the ring walk with the time difference but I’d sooner sleeper myself than pay the extra PPV price and watch on YouTube for free a few days later.

    I presume its region based so you would need a VPN and have to pay still?

    So subscribers don't get their monthly sub as a discount!?! They have to pay the full £19.99

    Imagine still paying for DAZN

    Absolute crap. They can't afford to pay anyone half decent because Eubank and Benn are getting all the money. Who's Lyndon Arthur fighting? I'm sure he fought not long ago.

    Do you have to be a DAZN subscriber to be able to buy the PPV?
    So for a non-subscriber it would actually be £28 with £8 for the subscription and £20 for the PPV?

    Yes £28 is the incredible price for an Inter non title fight

    £28, that's ridiculous.

    The hype for this fight has been overshadowed by the Fury-Joshua saga and the country's economic crisis.

    Not sure many people will be willing to spend £28 on a boxing fight. Especially with mortgages set to skyrocket.

    How does Hearn get out of his DAZN hell ( and I don’t mean the huge bank balance he’s got full of DAZN cash ) ? Frank bailed out of Boxnation to BT Sport but Hearn can’t do that. What type of stable will he have in 12 months time ? It’ll be Katie Taylor and the shell of Joshua. Are we watching the beginning of the end of Britain’s premier boxing promoter ? Seriously, it’s a biggish fight, Eubank Benn, particularly for the casuals but how many people are going to go though the rigmarole of signing up to Dazn to spend £28 on this. What happened to their PPV channel on the Sky platform ? On Sky, this would do a lot but it’ll do at least half that on DAZN, maybe less, probably less. We’ll never know of course but he’s already headlining with British title fights and if Benn loses, though I think he’ll outwork Jr particularly with the Marchroom FC judges, it’s another nail in the coffin isn’t it ?

    Eddie Hearn doesn't care.

    He can see the money from DAZN rolling into his bank account and that's what he cares about.

    This is going to do big numbers regardless.

    For all those who claim there is no interest in the fight how the hell did it sell out in a matter of minutes?

    Definitely understand it selling out quickly. Would have been very surprised if it didn’t. Just think that finding and signing up to a platform that many know nothing about will reduce the buys. I imagine there will be many next weekend looking on the Sky epg and the Sky Box Office channel to try and sign up.
