    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?

    It's ironic that these guys are "unknown to British public" and yet Tony Bellew, masquerading as a world class 'champion' cruiserweight and aspiring world class heavyweight, has been successfully hoisted upon them as a PPV star.

    I know casual British fans like to support British boxers but when the situation is that they've been kept in the dark completely as to who the real elite fighters in the world are, it is pretty sad.

    A real fight with uncertainty - few and far between these days
