    176k is what BARB pegs the PPV at?

    Expected more, expected less?

    really not something I bother with, the fight was amazing and itself will no doubt increase the numbers they do int he future.

    I have no idea what the fighters were paid or anything to know if this was a good amount of numbers or that?

    About right for me. If Loma - Campbell was 200k then this would be what I would expect.

    Probably more than expected. No one really knows who taylor or Prograis are cause they ain’t heavyweights. I bought the fight, first ppv I’ve bought in years, my mates came over for it but had zero interest in the boxing

    Doesnt this and the Loma v Campbell numbers just show that this 'hardcore' audience many love to shout about isnt as big as people like to think.

    I think both numbers are fine but when you have people who decry 'casual' fans thinking they are everything wrong with boxing I do wonder how they can be the bad guys here.

    The more people that watch the sport surely the better.

    Would of been far less if Chisora wasn't on the card.

    Still seems quite decent but what would I know.

    I would be interested to know what percentage of that 176k bought it for Chisora.

    I was at the fight, and it was remarkable just how empty the arena was for the main event in comparison to the Chisora fight.

    Reality is, nobody outside of proper boxing fans would know Taylor or Prograis.

    “Nobody cares about little guys anymore”, Chisora had a point.

    Its a shame really
    Good fight but little interest

    Hardcores keep boxing alive
    Casuals make it flourish

    How was the stream mate? I had a load of problems for Loma-Campbell with having to download that app, to the point where I got refunded.
