    Sure the main event is not close to the greatest ever, but the card as a whole is full of quality. I cannot remember a card this stacked.

    AJ vs Wallin - A big test for AJ in his current state. Wallin could hurt him, and we don't know exactly how good he is. If AJ loses it's over.

    Parker vs Wilder - Whoever loses is basically finished at this point, especially Wilder. Wilder fighting to stay relevant. Massive KO incoming.

    Bivol vs Arthur - Could have been a better opponent, but a chance to see arguably the most gifted LHW right now.

    Dubois vs Milller - Will be a big test for both. The PED cheat annoying big mouth loser vs the young brit who hits big. Brutal KO incoming.

    Hrgovic vs Demori - Ok **** opponent but at least it's keeping hrgovic active and he can maybe call out Usyk.

    Makhmudov vs Kabayel - FINALLY Makh fights someone half decent. Good fight.

    Frank Sanchez vs Fa - Finally seeing this guy back in action for the first time live since he beat Ajagba. A promising fighter, could be a better opponent but hopefully this leads to better things.

    The Hrgovic fight is the only one on the card I truly have no interest in watching. Hopefully that one will air in the middle so that I can take a break. ...

    As much as I like Hrgovic, I have to admit that his fight is disappointing and it would be desirable if they change his opponent or remove the entire fight from the event, all other fights should not be missed.

    It's a fantastic card, the Saudis know how to get things done (just wave around a bunch of cash basically).

    Wilder vs Parker is one of the match-ups of the year.

    Its a good card but the fact it seems so insanely out of the ordinary honestly says more about the state of the typical boxing card than anything else. I'm not sure its actually a better card than the UFC card happening the week before, and that didnt take **** knows how much Saudi money to get made nor is it being hailed as some crazy once in a lifetime event.

    Donald King might be a thieving murdering crook but he really used to put on great cards

    Wilder/Parker and Miller/Dubois should be fun. Pretty good card despite the Hrgovic opponent.

    would be ok for free tv, whole card isn't worth a ten buck ppv. they should be having cards like this every three months.

    A long time ago. In my opinion, it's because they're starting to get a bit afraid of MMA popularity.

    And after Ngannou beat Fury, they got even more afraid in my opinion.

    Let's be real here, this is 100% worth it. I'm not much into PPV stuff, but i'm buying this 100%.

    Cards like this needs to be supported, and the PPV numbers should reflect the card.

    Just like they reflect the s**** Fury - Ngannou match and card. For such fight you should 100% boycot.

    BTW, people on here and around the world crying that MMA have such stacked cards, but then they start crying that UFC stars are underpaid. But nobody used their brain. If UFC fighters have making fortune like the Boxers, the cards would be dog**** as there is no way in hell they could make a big card with top fighters that earn top money all of them. They will be on huge loses.
    So good luck pulling that. It's either one or another.

    And looking at Boxing, Hell i prefer the UFC model, and it's obviously the right one.
    Giving too much power into the "players" and promoters are going to ruin the sport, as it happen with Football, Boxing, etc, etc.
