    I think of they make a big success in other territories then they wont have a choice. I think that may be the strategy.

    Inoue tonight! Sky are pushing this on social media but its getting zero traction as expected. These 'casual' fans really dont care much if its not Matchroom.

    I'm a huge boxing fan, but I won't be watching the Inoue fight.

    I'll be watching the Nets vs Bucks.

    Kevin Durant is like the NBA version of Tyson Fury. The way he moves is ridiculous for a big guy.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is the NBA version of Anthony Joshua. So powerful and strongly built.

    Love The Monster but will watch this one tomorrow probably.

    I hope he continues to be in decent fights considering he's signed with TR.

    Once paid £60 for a ticket in a very good seat to watch the WBSS semi finals with Josh Taylor and Inoue both in World Title Fights - must have been the best value I will ever see in boxing.

    Mugths paying £200 plus for similar seats to watch puddings such as Whyte in non title fights.

    It was worth getting up for
    First up a cracker between Isaac Dogboe v Adam Lopez followed by a good little scrap between Mikaela Maye and Erica Farias.
    Finally a punch perfect performance from the monster

    Dogboe vs Lopez was very good, Lopez must be kicking himself for waiting so long before he turned up the heat if he had done that a few rounds earlier think he would have stopped Dogboe
    Women's fight only watched a bit of it
    Inoue - It was 5.30 and the ring walks hadn't even started, pressed record and went to bed

    Good start to the new era which felt a little like the old days on Sky with quality American cards with big names being shown live on regular Sky Sports. Long may it continue.

    Inoue foot movement so key reminds me way golovkin used to cut off the ring. The guy was probably knackered by 3rd round amount running he was doing. Inoue never once looked in bother ice Cold and ruthless. Definitely top 3 p4p

    Inoue is top class. Absolute killer.

    Enjoyed the Top Rank show... mainly because it was in the middle of the night and I didn’t have my missus asking questions. But in all seriousness and as said above it felt like a return to the old days on Sky.
