    Love to see Hunter step in but highly doubt that. Hughie fury? Price?

    Takam would have been a good one but he’s just signed to Top Rank.

    Would Bakolie or Hrgovic fancy it at short notice?

    Hearn needs to get his wallet out in order to save this PPV.

    Hunter v Povetkin is a better fight than chisora. He should try and get Miller over.

    I’m guessing Price. Povetkin would be decent, or if you’re not gona bad Dillian Whyte you may as well make the trilogy.

    Don't think it'll be Price as they'll still want him on the Liverpool card in November. I hope they go all out to get somebody decent as it's a PPV card. Hughie, Bakole or Hrgovic I'm hoping for.

    He doesn't work with people who have failed tests

    Guess he didn't have a backup for this one huh.

    Will probably be someone mediocre who'll give Chisora fights because he won't be as up for it.

    Tom Schwartz won again at the weekend? Looked limited against Fury, holds one of the 28 IBF belts. Would be cheap enough?

    I think Matchroom have 3 options.

    Get an average opponent in and move the card to regular Sky and off PPV. As this fight would have driven the numbers.

    Get a big name replacement in which will cost big money and still could be a tough sell. If Usyk wins within a couple of rounds it could possibly be him. Or a Jarrell Miller anyone besides these two would likely still struggle to sell PPVs

    Get a weaker opponent in a winnable fight for Chisora such Wach or Dimitrenko and move another decent fight onto this card. For instance move Cheeseman vs Fitz to this card and replace the Newcastle card.

    One thing is for sure though. Del Boy will be pulling Eddies pants down now.

    Would they consider taking chisora and burns or okolie off and put it on regular sky?

    My top choice would by Usyk. Kownacki or Joyce would be fun stylistically - doubt Kownacki would take it on short notice and Sam Jones will find some excuse why Joyce can’t.

    Michael Hunter’s already said he’d take it, that would be good too.

    Not a big name but Martin Bakole wouldn’t be bad.

    No way it comes off Sky, Sky have served up worse on PPV.

    Don't think they'd go for him. Hunter said he's up for it, which I would be all over, though I'd rather Hunter-Povetkin in truth.
