    You say that, Hearn will probably try and stick him in with Beterbiev next just to finish him off. ‘I think John can win this Kugs’.

    Gave them 1 month and a week, still no response from DAZN's Data Subject Rights team, so I've raised a case with the Information Commissioner's Office.

    Also cancelled my annual subscription for good measure.

    I've always assumed that people from DAZN and Matchroom read these threads, so the following bit is for them.

    If you read my post history, early into your time here I was about as enthusiastic for DAZN in the UK as it was possible to be.

    The service was a fair price, no stupid subscription terms, one button cancellation, multi-screen / device access, casting ability, and regular decent to good level boxing. In short, I was a very long way from being a hater: compared to a traditional satellite and cable package you were transparent and fair.

    Slowly too many of those positive features have gone. The 30 day cancellation policy on monthly subscriptions is predatory - clearly designed to trick customers into overpaying. The device limit is frustrating for anyone with a decent sized household. Your support of dangerous 'influencer' boxing is concerning.

    By retaining several of my card numbers (including expiry dates and CVV numbers) without my consent, you've lost me as a customer until you overhaul your policies.

    Rant over, but enjoyed writing that, hope not too painful to read.

    Just an update. Predictably they have not confirmed my cancellation yet. Will give them another couple of days then try phoning. Maybe their web support is overwhelmed with cancellations.

    Got to be the worst card Matchroom have ever done. Horrendous.

    Benn fighting in a 750 seat hotel breakfast room that isn't even close to being sold out = cracking Vegas

    33 year old = next gen

    You couldn't make it up!

    I already did the same because they refused to recognise cancelled subscription or to stop sending me offers for things in which I have no interest. Probably reported to the ICO 10 times at least - the emails have stopped for now, no idea if it just happened or the ICO insisted.

    I agree. This is definitely Matchroom's worst ever card on DAZN UK.

    It surprises me that DAZN's owners can accept such a bad card ?

    If you think this weekend's is bad, what until you see next weekend's! A supposed NxtGen featuring 33 year olds! An absolute waste of oxygen of a card

    I hadn't realised the Vegas card was basically a UK show; almost on at lunchtime in the US to hit prime time back here. No wonder the seats didn't shift.

    As for "headlining in Vegas" - I don't think Cooney vs Holmes took place in the daylight!
