    All good points in fairness. The thing I'd add is that I think the standard of cards in general has gone up. We can criticise the last two Brook and Khan fights but are they really much worse than what Hatton and Calzaghe did on normal Sky year after year?

    I dont think the standard has gone up at all.

    Brook v Gavin was the last good card on paper by Matchroom imo. They are spread very thin these days so they have hyped up the mid card guys alot. It's very clever promotion.

    Main event aside it was brilliant. I went to it and managed to switch our seats to the row behind the inner ring. It was class

    Yep, 3 world title fights (only 1 of which was a mismatch), few good domestic level fights and a prospect in a noted step-up. THAT is a PPV card. Not bundles of Olympic prospects who haven't yet stepped up, below domestic level fighter Conor Benn, Katie Taylor and then a vaguely meaningful Heavyweight fight with no title.

    fair play. good comparisons in the range scheme of things.
    a PPV isnt that bad. even once a month is not to pressing on the bank balance

    PPV’s should be once every few months for fights that can only be put together with that kind of money...like a Canelo v GGG 3, Fury v Wilder etc it’s getting ridiculous having so many. I’m hardly on the bones of my a**e but it’s getting silly. This isn’t about the fighter getting more dosh, it’s greed from promoters, tv companies etc. Stop condoning it.

    Why does Fury Wilder need to be PPV? Both are proven to be poor sellers who don't get paid that much.

    You’re on ignore pal. I know you’re no doubt chiming in on what I’ve said but I have to say it’s absolutely joyful not seeing your posts :)

    Umm because it's a fight between 2 world class heavyweights so it can be justified like how you would justify it had Fury signed with matchroom Eddie.

    No, that's why it 'can' be on PPV. The person above said it was an example of a fight that can 'only' be put together with PPV money. Which I'm suggesting is nonsense.

    Are they poor sellers in the current US market?
    Serious question
    From the bits I've read although they didn't break no records the fight made money and people got paid well

    If you are comparing it to the current UK model I think that's a touch unfair seeing as we are enjoying a boom where as America the total oppersite

    An unverified 325k (according to multiple industry sources). According to Wikipedia (so not to be taken as gospel), it falls somewhere between Canelo-Lara and Mayweather-Berto, way off superfight figures, but well in excess of a Ward-Kovalev type fight.

    "Poor sellers" to me is a bit harsh. They aren't proven PPV superstars, but the US boxing market currently only has two of those, or one if you count fully active fighters. A rematch should do better numbers based on the quality of the first fight and the loose ends left afterwards. The US market is very difficult to crack, but if and when someone does the stakes increase exponentially.

    Eh Day's coffee boy on the coke giving it large on here again.

    Fook me, the Matchroom cards on Sky Sports have been garbage for years now and nearly all PPV fights are stinkers as well.
