    I assume they won't do fights like Broner v Pacquiao and Spence v Garcia on PPV?

    itv did eubank jr's ibo title fights on ppv...

    I hope this time they build fighters rather than any fight of note on ppv but i doubt it.

    It has REAL potential to be the secondary promotion in the uk. More dates than Warren on paper and although there isn't that subscription money the boxing market is mostly young men which is a advertisers dream....

    From an advertisers perspective it's a goldmine, every household in the UK with a TV has ITV.
    If ITV play this right and learn from the Eubank JR mistakes this will be an absolute goldmine.

    As long as they don't just stick the UK cards on ITV Box Office this will be good.

    Good stuff. Concerned that they're putting more stuff on ITV PPV though. But competition is good.

    I think BT have more to worry from this than Sky. Sky can create stars and raise their profile easier than BT. ITV has the possibility of putting fighters on their other shows like Jonathon Ross etc to hype fights. Sky has Sky Sports News etc. BT has youtube only.

    Excited until I read the last part of that tweet, any decent fights are going to be on PPV, still better than nothing though having boxing on TV that I can actually watch legally.

    Good stuff ITV. They should have Philip Schofield front their boxing coverage and press conferences, get the silver fox tore straight into Hearn.

    Exactly, Haymon will put all the good cards on PPV, rest of the trash will go to regular ITV.
