    Where's @Jurgen when you need him? Get over to the general for this one.

    £25.00 is really nothing. I have not counted up how many I buy a year, but think it is probably once a month or a little less.

    It’s worth the money for the fun I get out of it.

    Didn't Eddie Hearn say KSI v Logan Paul did Joshua numbers or better and that was £10. Why are they charging £25 for this.

    So after getting laid out flat by Ruiz Jr, they are now charging £5 more for his next PPV?

    This is a real business error by Matchroom and Hearn.

    Given how easy it is to watch these PPVs without having to pay for it...we may see lower than expected numbers for this one.

    Because KSi v Hogan was two bums fighting.

    This is for the HW championship of the world.

    PPV in America used to be $30 in the 1980s for Mike Tyson fights. Thats around the same price as this is now...

    Hardcore uk fans complain about PPV every single time regardless of price.

    I don't think very many people who were going to pay 20 will now go for a dodgy stream instead because it's 5 more.

    And many who complain now and say they won't get it will cave in on fight night like the cucks they are.

    I've never understood complaining about PPV if I think a fight is worth it I buy it, if i dont then I won't get it. Keep it moving.

    WIlder-Ortiz isn´t a mismatch, but it´s not worth 75 bucks.
    Nery-Rodriguez is actually a really good matchup.
    Figueroa vs Ceja is a good one as well.
    And then there is Emo Santa Cruz. Well it takes two to tango and as usual; Santa Cruz has cherrypicked his opponent.

    The card itself is decent. Tons of prospects as well. But GTFO with that PPV price.

    British men are desperate to worship their idol and so they must pay for the privilege. Maybe he will one day sign the bared mid-riff of their disabled daughter and it will be worth it!

    I'd rather pay for it and get a reliable broadcast instead of some dodgy stream that can get closed down or overloaded at any given moment. £25 is peanuts.
