    I wonder if Eddie "PPV is killing the sport of boxing" Hearn / DAZN expects Ryan Garcia to sell all the tickets incl. PPV purchase ?

    The decline in Matchroom Boxing cards has been spectacular

    Matchroom had a number of good headliners last autumn but it has been a poor start to 2024 and I don't think the UK Cards Matchroom has announced this spring look particularly exciting.

    DAZN seems to be getting worse and worse, I bet their viewing figures are terrible in 2024. Probably burnt most of their bridges with the public judging be the scathing reviews on Trust Pilot.
    Anecdotally speaking, nobody I know ever talks about DAZN or probably has a clue what they show, and I'm talking about people that watch a lot of sport.

    Yes of course they do. They are clearly the B side in this fight. It’s all about Garcia, who in my opinion loses a dreary 12 rounder.

    Just like nearly all of womens boxing, this stinker goes to the cards with Gracia losing wide on points.

    That’s a kick in the front bum for Hearn. Especially thinking that he hugely overpaid him to box for his 135lbs email world title fights and then left to go to Top Rank. ‘He’s my mate though’. Course he is Eddie lad. Wake up.

    Totally agree. Ryan Garcia does not have the right mentality for professional boxing and Devin Haney is not worth watching.

    Garcia doesn't stand a chance. Easy win for Haney.

    If existing DAZN UK customers are offered the fight / event at 9.95 then I will consider buying the PPV.

    Cannot see many in the UK watching this fight during the night and no more than 1% of those who would watch actually buying this fight.

    DAZN UK is a dead duck and not going to make money in the UK after the previous 2 years.

    You are absolutely right. I'm going to record it on the Sky box and watch it on Sunday morning.

    Haney simply too good for Garcia which makes it a boring watch.

    Will watch the next day as well.
