    I think it’s sells around 12-14k and I think it does around 200k PPV buys. The hardcore will buy it and anyone who feels like watching the fights on a night in.

    I think it needs one more named fighter in a decent fight to push the numbers. Taylor hasn’t got much of a casual profile neither has prograis. I think if they had Kell Brook on the card in a keep busy fight or even maybe David Price it would sell the place out and drive the casuals up.
    I think it’s a great card but will only turn a small profit once you’ve paid WBSS and Chisora/Parker

    It's London so they will be able to shift most unsold tickets on Groupon and sites like that in the week running up to the event.

    Quite sad watching Burns' interview here after the fight last night where he's visibly emotional and upset. He felt like he won it, and that was my gut feeling too even though I didn't score it RBR. I'd have to watch it back to give a proper opinion on who won, but it wasn't entertaining enough for me to watch it again to be honest.

    I'd like Ricky to hang 'em up now, he's got a good legacy intact and nothing more to prove. I think he'll box on though.

    Tough watch that. Never been a massive Burns fan but can’t question his heart and love for the sport. Hope he hangs them up now though, had a career to be proud of. Top man

    Was one of the most boring fights I’ve seen all year. I stopped scoring it midway but it’s one of these fights where for judges it depends what you like. Personally I preferred Selby’s work over Burns but I was so bored I wasn’t paying full attention.

    Feel for burns. Hes still a decent fighter....but for his own sanity he needs to call it a day. Must be hard going from where he was to where he is now. To his credit hes still good...but hes slipped just enough to start losing to guys he would have beaten. You need to know when to get out of boxing. Theres no doubting hes still physically capable of competing at a decent level. But what does that do to your sanity when your still chasing the highs hes had.

    Looks to me hes now showing a slightly different character....because hes slipping. Not through any fault of his own but no ones superman. Looks like its frustrating him. It ends up eating you up mentally....on top of that the punches hes taking at this stage cant be good for him. Hard to give up when your still good but its the right decision. Rickys had a career and a half...should be proud of what hes achieved. Farewell fight in scotland....and call it a well deserved day.

    Watching that interview is hard, it's easy to forget that only a few years ago Ricky was at the top of the game. He's left a great legacy, the best in Scotland's history.
