    Wow, I can't believe this is a PPV. The first fight was terrible and the only reason why I didn't fall asleep was because Catterall was doing better than I expected. This is shameful to be honest. Last time Taylor was on PPV was against Prograis with a great undercard and he didn't break 200,000 PPV buys.

    People used to blame Hearn for fights being PPV on Sky but it is the broadcaster who makes the decision.

    No, it's not. It's a mutual decision between all stakeholders.

    PPV is just so stupid for this. How does this help grow boxing on Sky?

    The undercard was dreadful last time - they need more than bad blood and some controversy to do well out of this on box office.

    The first fight was boring as well so never a Box Office Event.

    Perhaps we get Joshua v Whyte on the undercard

    I agree. It will require a very strong undercard. Otherwise, Sky does not sell any PPVs.

    The boxers and Sky will be doing this knowing the risks. Assume there's some kind of guarantee and upside involved.

    Maybe they'll pull a fast one and put someone well known on the undercard like they did with Chisora and Taylor-Prograis... Not many fighters of that notoriety sitting on the shelf needing a payday though!

    Since it's Glasgow how about Rankin-Harper 2...

    The first fight wasn’t great but people will still watch the rematch because both have a point to prove, will Taylor be drained again for the weight?

    Shalom seemed desperate to get Catterall a rematch since the judges scorecards were announced last time , now we know why.

    Now we know why? Are you serious?

    I think most non-ned-scrote-racist-thug fanboys knew why as soon as the cards were read out!

    Dreadful PPV. No chance I’m paying.

    BeterbIev- Yarde also scheduled for 28/1/22 and with the cost of the purses for that fight, BT will 100% be sticking that on PPV which I will be buying.
