    I will as well. But a very niche market.

    Be shocked if it does 20,000 buys in the UK, I really will. Great fight but both unknown to 99.999% of the British public.

    Funnily enough, I saw an advert on ITV for this, probably during the football last night - which is one more advert than I saw for the Groves vs Eubank bout earlier in the year

    I can't believe I might be missing this. Am on holiday in Greece at the time and there doesn't seem to be any Greek channels showing it when I looked at the TV partners of the WBSS. Long shot but, does anybody know if I buy it off ITV box office to watch on my tablet before I leave, will I be able to watch it abroad?

    Strange.. maybe they're relying/hoping that from the millions watching the world cup, some will become interested if they see an advert for it?

    I agree, with all the costs in setting up a ppv bill i think they would have been financially short and long term having it on free to air.
