    Looks like this will be a terrible mistake by sky as the comments in this youtube video suggest those who would have paid are now going to use "other" methods to watch the fight.

    Thoughts ?

    Wilder-Ortiz is a mismatch with a poor under-card and they are charging $75.

    Joshua-Ruiz is a much better matchup, and there are several interesting fights on the undercard.

    What time will it be on in England??
    It's usually 19.99$?
    I know the pound is worth more than the $ but still we pay 80$ HD a ppv in America it's ridiculous

    The same people complaining would have no problems going to a bar and pay £50+ for drinks to watch the fight and barely remember a thing at the end of the night.

    This is another 25% price hike not that long after a 33% price increase. **** Sky looking to continually squeeze boxing fans to placate a greedy Joshua who should be looking to prove himself in this fight and a prop up it's ****ty football coverage.

    U,K guys got it easy on the PPV scene ,it sucks they don't have DAZN but ? The under pricing was a reason why team Wilder had an angle to avoid that fight in the first place with the nonsense they came up with ,its not murder the slightly jacked up price and it includes possibly 4 other HW's on it ? Fighters like AJ have to be paid even through getting money to DAZN who guaranteed him all that cash ,don't under sell this guy if anyone is doing PPV's at HW.


    Wilder vs Ortiz will be like ,what ? 80 bucks here with a terrible undercard ? Lol.

    Yeah because I am sure Anthony Joshua is in charge of the Finance Department at Sky Sports.........

    Man, it's called demand. This is one of the biggest rematches in boxing history; the world wants to see it. The entire UK wants to see it....so if people are ready to pay, be ready to take their money.

    People can do what they want including me saying '**** Sky and **** AJ for being greedy money grabbing *******s who are continually ramping up the price'.

    I don't like profiteering and I hope this bites them in the ass. It prob won't but I'm sick of Sky trying to continually shake down boxing fans and hope they get burned.

    Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was 80 dollars, which translates to 61 pounds, or 72 Euros.

    Quit your bellyaching.:deal:

    It's that they keep doing it incrementally that the problem. Have no doubt - they've got their eyes on that £61.
