    I know Haye was not on last night but every PPV he spouts shyte hence his inclusion in the list.

    Thanks mate. I’ve tried before with the app but you have to have a BT account in first place...unless like @pow had mentioned they’ve finally sorted it. Will be gutted if they haven’t.

    It is getting a bit much now tbh. I thought the Joe Rogan interview was superb but yeah, he's claimed the narrative now bigtime.

    This will do huge numbers on BT PPV. Everyone is talking about it, even the non boxing fans.

    Same here mate, looks like you still can't buy it as a stand-alone. Can't be dealing with a perma-buffering stream for this one.

    Agree, I don't know the mood for this in the States. However, in the UK, I'd be surprised if this didn't do 800k at the very minimum.

    It looks like this might actually be getting sorted for non BT customers mate...although just 6 days before the event I can’t see an option for us to buy it yet. They’re leaving it close.

    I can't decide if you're taking the **** or a genuine lunatic. Either way, well played!

    Not a chance. That's more than Bellew v Haye. 800k at 4am isn't happening. 800k minimum when Hatton v Mayweather did 900k and Floyd v Pacquiao did 1 mil seems one almighty claim.

    Can I add people really shouldn't take anecdotal stories as evidence. This forum has had plenty of times where people claim none of their non boxing fans are talking about a fight so the PPV will flop. AJ v Povetkin. Haye v Bellew 2, Whyte v Parker being three examples and then the numbers come out and surprise surprise no flop.

    Honestly how many people were talking about Usyk v Bellew? That fight did at least 500k buys

    He's doing football for BT Sport now. I wish they'd have him on their boxing coverage too.

    Think he had a row at Sky, left suddenly.

    You don't see the hype for this fight? It has fully crossed over. It is a huge fight.

    Buglioni does not do well against southpaws and that cut was bad. Can see Hearn making a fight with Frank and Buatsi in the new year

    I really like watching hunter, nothing amazing but he has really good timing and he was booming Ustinov the same as bakole. He really drills home that right hand and in the end it takes its toll. Looking forward to watching him again, he’s got a new fan in me

    It's a big fight, the point of the thread is that people who want to watch it online via an official paid stream can't becuase BT don't have that option. I've been doing it with Sky PPV's now for a number of years.
