    Just checked the Barb ratings site and they have Sky Box office for that week at 438k

    For reference they had Whyte v Parker at 474k so there may me some slight discrepancies as on the most recent IFL interview Hearn said it did more than the Parker fight.

    I would guess below 500k but maybe got to 450k buys.

    Unfortunately BT sport Box Office isnt on the Barb site and Frank Warren isn't saying anything about numbers so no idea what the Warrington v Frampton fight did.

    Boxthing mugths out in force that Dec evening - double dose of PPV on one night must have had them in multiple orgasm press the buy button twice mode.

    When Eh Day puts 2 fat puddings on PPV for the Poundland Money Belt and it sells, there must be some more garbage in store soon for the PPV Mugths including:

    Whyte v Parker 2
    Khan v Brook
    Skippy Burns v Pants Crolla 2

    The time is coming when Toe Haye and Toni Bellew types get PPV per line of commentary.

    There were no WWE PPVs that weekend (or any other box office events that I'm aware of).

    Those numbers if accurate are pretty impressive considering it was H2H with another boxing PPV.

    Good number just before xmas. Whyte's touching just under a million ppv buys for his last two fights. That's quite the rise for Dillian and his become a real draw in British Boxing.

    AJ v Whyte 2 would be one of the biggest drawing PPV's in 2019.

    It's remarkable that despite the fact that the event was a success for all involved people will still moan about it.

    We live in a society where footballers, politicians, rugby players, pop stars, plumbers, IT technicians and doctors all maximise their earning potential. That's fine and natural but Dillian Whyte is a disgrace for fighting on PPV for £2m rather than regular Sky for £200,000.

    Not forgetting the most important thing. Nobody is forced to buy it.

    Yeah but @T_S_A_R doesnt want anyone else to buy Whyte PPV's

    He want's people to boycott. And not give money to Whyte... people should watch him on the regular Sky, and Whyte should get peanuts.

    Whyte is a draw... and an exciting one and that.

    Entertainment for 20 pounds. Cinema is about 15-20 pounds these days.

    A pizza is 20 pounds.

    A casual T-shirt is 20 pounds.

    20 pounds is like... 1% of your monthly take home pay.

    1 PER CENT OF YOUR MONTHLY TAKE HOM PAY!!!

    MONTHLY!!

    Or 25% if your daily rate.

    None of them involve a base rate of £80 a month before you move a muscle like Sky

    I believe you can watch it online.. or on your mobile/tablet device. Just sign up for a Sky ID account and you get clean, quality, uninterrupted streaming on fight night.

    Unlike those silly free streams you guys use that stutter at the important moments... drive you insane with addsl clicking and redirecting..

    Not to mention the low quality bit rate.

    20 pounds. I am sure you lot have spent more on useless ****e.

    Your money though... but dont go knocking the PPV

    I've had IPTV for years, never missed a PPV with a beat

    "Don't go Knocking the PPV"

    Sorry Eddie and Adam Smith, jesus christ, I can't believe people actually pay for stuff like Whyte Chisora, obviously enough numpties have to pay out cash for it but baffles me.

    Watched it in the pub. Would have been cheaper to watch at home. Drinks cost more, taxi, food etc in a night out cost at least £100 vs £20 plus maybe a takeaway and a few cans taking it up to 50 quid.

    An elephant's foreskin would be a bigger draw
