    I'll buy it . Should make for a great style clash and its what you want , two power punchers with defensive holes and then people cry ? lol

    Its a FAR better fight then Fury ,i dont get how people don't get this ? you have TWO top finishers as well ,and at least one of them CAN take a punch which evens things out somewhat in the speed difference.

    We get it Breazeale is not a popular name ,I thought the fights were what counted though ?

    I could see the PRICE itself if its that much as a reason but if its in the 50 dollar range why not ?


    I would urge AFTER this fight PPV or not,we as fans boycott Wilder if he continues to avoid Joshua ,that's ONE way getting that fight made. lol


    UNLESS you REALLY think Wilder is that competent fighter to dispatch Breazeale so easy then don't buy it, but im telling you its going to be a war as long as it lasts which is always a gamble at HW,most guys on here were saying Fury gets knocked out with the first punch landed ? REMEMBER that ? lol

    Its a solid biut

    I dont rate Breazelle all that high hes maybe top 10. Its inevitable he gets KOd

    Its ok for Showtime or Fox

    But PPV? No way

    The guy got starched by AJ and hasn’t beaten a top 10 fighter. Paying big money for this fight is not on my list of things to do.

    In a weird way I would have been more likely to pay for the Breazeale vs Whyte fight. As I believe that would be much more competitive.

    I agree it's not going to be a walk in a park for Wilder, Breazeale is going to test him. Wilder has struggled in a lot of his defences, Duhaupas hung in there and busted up his eye, Molina rocked him, Szpilka took rounds off him, Washington was out pointing him before the stoppage, Ortiz had him badly hurt, Fury out boxed him only to be robbed, other than a shot Arreola or a even more shot Stiverne, Wilder has tended to struggle. I think it's going to be a far better fight than people think.

    This PPV is almost as bad as the Eubank vs Abraham one, would be very disappointing if anyone bought it.

    I don't see this doing as much as the Fury fight did in terms of PPV numbers. It's not really a PPV fight to be honest but Showtime had their hand forced by the DAZN offer. It's helped Wilder push this fight onto PPV and will of course make him more money than it would of on regular Showtime though far less than the $20 mill DAZN were willing to pay.

    Don't think this helps Showtime though, if they keep getting forced to make fights PPV because DAZN keep throwing big money at their fighters then they'll quickly kill off PPV as fans turn off from the platform.

    First I agree this will be a tough fight for Wilder, as someone already pointed out Wilder has badly struggled, and been outboxed by lesser fighters than Breazeale, so I can not understand why people would think this should be a easy fight.

    Also Wilder is coming off his first loss, so that will have added negative effect on him mentally.

    Yes Joshua beat Breazeale easily, but Joshua clearly displays better boxing ability than Wilder, Wilder gets himself out of trouble using his power, not because of any genius boxing brain.

    As for PPV, it will be free in my country, so does not effect me at all. Would I pay 74.99 to watch the fight if I had to pay that amount to watch it, no definitely not, that price is crazy, and will definitely give Joshua’s team good reason to give Wilder a much lesser offer for their fight. This fight is going to do very poor in PPV sales, and hurt Wilder future earnings.

    It would be a surprise if this did more than 150k PPV.

    It'll do fine on PPV as it's HW and WIlder is reasonably well known now after the Fury fight. It won't be massive but it'll do fine.

    As **** as this fight is, it's genuinely the best HW matchup on the Horizon. The gulf between AJ and Miller is far great than Wilder and Breazeale and Fury isn't likely to be fighting anyone better. Hopefully after this round of **** HW fights we'll get something involving 2 of the top 3 later in the year.

    For 74.99? Absolutely not.

    Even if it does better than Wilder/Fury he'll get criticism if it doesn't earn him as much as DAZN would of paid. With Breazeale taking a mandatories 25% and Showtime taking their 50% cut this will need to do upwards of 600K along with the live gate to ensure Wilder gets the kind of payday that is comparable and I just don't see that happening.

    Anything less than that and he opens himself up for criticism.
