    No more needs to be said. The best fight was a low-mid level British title fight. The Wardley-Molina bout should have been a curtain jerker or a mid level Saturday fight night match - Molina didn’t want to be there and took first exit option available. Povetkin to me wasn’t right, his legs were not there from the start. Granted he is 41 but as many have suggested it looks like COVID wiped him out.

    I didn’t pay but this was a PPV card.

    Cheeseman Metcalf and Kongo Mckinson were 50-50 fights on paper and delivered. We saw a shock with Webb stopping Pfeifer, and the main event was what it was

    Oh **** off.

    Wipes like you are why the average joe has to fork out to pay for tosh like that.
    It was an absolute disgrace of a card.

    I hope this is a wind up. Kongo-Mckinson and Cheeseman-Metcalf were well matched domestic fights featuring guys who are somewhere between 4-10 in the country. Not high level matches! Molina was co main eventing and he didn’t want to be there. Povetkin couldn’t stand up. Seriously mate

    The main event had a fighter who could barely walk and the co-main had one who quit the first decent punch. As for the Campbell Hatton farce, there’s no way a fight like that should be on at 8 o’clock on box office. It was barely white collar standard.

    2 decent British level fights don’t make it PPV worthy.

    Cheeseman 4th in the country at British level? Seriously?
    I’ve never paid for a PPV mate. I definitely don’t think Chiapas Parker should be a PPV, but on paper this was a decent card, and considering the current market, it was definitely a PPV

    Yeah that Campbell Hatton fight was an absolute farce lol. He shouldn't be anywhere near TV at this stage.

    I'm no Conor Benn fan at all but at least he was stopping opponents coming upor was in entertaining scraps like the Peynaud fight.

    He’s behind Smith, Fowler and Fitz easily and there will be fighters queuing up to beat him. You will argue that Smith at least way above British level but that’s not my point. It’s just semantics. Cheeseman is a good British title fighter but that’s it. It’s one of the worst cards I have seen on paper for a Sky PPV and it played out that way. Let’s not argue anything else.

    Fitzgerald hasn’t fought in 1 and a half years. Cheeseman has the better wins on his record than Fowler and Fitzgerald and most reckon he beat Scott, so he’s ahead of them both.

    This was a better card than Campbell Lomachenko, Prograis Taylor, Bellew Usyk, and Whyte Rivas which have all been on PPV before

    I would go as far to say.. the YouTube fights that were slaughtered were better than Campbell Hatton.

    The YouTuber s looked better technically, had better gas tanks and were in competitive fights.

    Kongo vs Mckinson was very dull to watch (as I thought it was gonna be beforehand) , they should be nowhere near a PPV, never gonna watch either of them in the ring again

    Cheeseman is 2-2-1 in his last 5 fights and went life and death with Sam Eggington a year ago. It’s not about him anyway. It was a decent fight which would have been well placed as a co main on a regular Saturday night fight night. Don’t kid yourself on.

    As for the others having a better card - Whyte v Rivas is the only one that your could even argue. I think most/all agree you are wrong here so don’t kid yourself on. You are basically saying a couple of well matched British level fights and a Whyte v 41 year old who can’t stand up equals a PPV. Fair play

    Did you think this card was Better than the Warrington or the Josh Kelly card?
