    Frank Warren won the purse bid.

    I wonder if Matchroom actually bidded?

    it was pretty much a done deal they not win the bid. That was a given. they have less money to throw at it due to the way the purse bids are done.

    Is a perfectly good main event for a Saturday. But would need something mental on the undercards to be PPV

    Warrington-Galahad is a PPV fight if Chisora-Whyte is a PPV fight.

    Probably not in the fans eyes though or without the Sky/Matchroom PR spin behind it

    Galalahad and Warrington combined on Twitter 95k followers

    Chisora on his own 210k
    Whyte 195k

    PPV fights are PPV fights based on how much they sell, not what they are. Take these UK examples:

    An old, semi-retired American light middleweight versus a cage fighter making his debut for no titles is a PPV fight if 870,000 people buy it.

    An undefeated heavyweight world champion versus an undefeated heavyweight world champion is not a PPV fight if the number of people who buy it is so low the promoter won't even release the figures.

    Do any promoters in the UK actually release the figures?

    I’m pleased for Warrington that he’s gone this route.

    Vacating a title he’s worked so hard for, for a match against Valdez was silly really. Wouldn’t have done big money here or in the states.

    Should be a great fight, two fantastic work rates on show but Warrington to take it over the distance via UD for that extra bit of class

    Also glad Warrington has taken the fight. Never been a massive fan of his but it would be dumb to drop his title after working so hard. At 28 he is in his best years and there is plenty of time left for unifications. Would also love to see him put a beating on Galahad.

    This really shouldn't be PPV, hopefully BT see sense and put it as a Saturday Night free event.

    I think if they put on a free Saturday night show it will do wonders for their boxing content and the fighter. At the minute (and I’m not saying sky/matchroom are much better) the standard of shows is **** poor. Leicester and the Albert hall are pathetic in all honesty. They’re not going to pull in the crowds/casuals.

    They could maybe do Elland Road in May and that would pull in the finance without it being PPV?
