    Hate being the guy to bring up numbers but for the first time I’m genuinely in shock at PPV numbers

    Over a million buys for this. Wtf?! No title, no meaning to it, middle of a pandemic, not a good undercard, sandwiched between other PPVs, and does numbers like that. Unreal.

    Figures based on BARB

    Surely Eddie is just giving them a bung to make numbers up to keep public perception that these events are super popular and worth paying for

    Logic says no way that done a million

    The river was at full capacity with anglers that night - could not find enough space to reel in the PPV mugths

    The unconfirmed angling figures was over 12 million just in UK waters

    Could the BARB figure be inflated by the Prem games on Box Office that week?

    No way it did more than AJ vs Pulev.

    Great! With Usyk doing numbers like this I guess it's back to free TV for Canelo.

    My guess is that they’ve counted people watching the free to air bit at the start. Was it right after a premier league game?

    More chance of me having a three way with Queen Liz and Prince Phillip than that number being accurate

    Figure was approximately 225-250k buys which is exactly what all expected. Show effectively broke even which in this climate is a bonus

    Chisora is to be congratulated as an overachiever. He has made himself an attraction a box office attraction as well.

    Domestic abuse and scripted acting goes a long way these days - a fat female bashing plodding pudding has earned millions and millions of pounds from the thick cohort of PPV Mugths.

    Overachieved in the ring? Won the same British Title as Big Dave Price and Sam Sexton - not bad for a fat female bashing pudding who should never have been granted a licence to fight after that.

    Adam Smith will roar 'people like Chisora' while Black Lives Matter pops up on the screen - people don't like female bashing puddings Mr Smith.

    It’s an embarrassment to British boxing that the likes of Chisora, Bellew and Whyte became PPV attractions purely from shouting their mouths off.

    There is a reason why Hearn said he wants Chisora to fight off PPV next and it’s definitely not because of big buy rates. I doubt this did more than 150k sales.
