    We as hardcores will say no or the undercard would have to be stacked but the hype will be enormous after first press conference with ifl videos saying intense beef and sky sports doing updates everyday.

    I'd rather pay to watch two bums fight outside spoons, how can anyone pay to watch a guy that quit when he got hit in the thigh. I would happily watch Khan get sparked every day of my life but I wouldn't pay for it.

    Said it before and will say it again.

    Glass eye V Glass Jaw not a chance, who in the right mind would buy this, or any for that matter.

    After what Khan did against Crawford no chance.

    If the fight started to go against Khan he may well fake an injury again or have his corner throw in the towel rather than face the humiliation of being stopped by his nemesis. £20 for that ??
    How anybody especially non casual fans would consider paying after the Crawford quit job is beyond me.

    We all say no but with the right build up and Sky/Matchroom PR it would definitely do reasonable numbers

    The fact there is 2 threads a week about this fight I’d suggest people would.

    Does less than half it could have done at one point though. Still does between 350k-500k undercard dependant.

    Khan is just in it for the coin these days and let's face it, he's doing alright isn't he?

    Semi retired Khan vs Broken eye socket shot Brook.

    They may have been able to still sell this fight still around 12 months ago, but the public appetite for this fight has gone the way of dust and bones.

    No way, not a chance, I don't care what's sort of card was supporting it.

    Khan is done, finished, over, I'm way past caring about him, I have even become numb to watching him get dropped or knocked out now, I have seen it happen before, no pleasure in watching him get iced.

    As for Brook, again, I'm not bothered, I don't believe his heart is in it any longer, he wants a cash out fight.

    So itnwould just be a money grab, a boring, past any best money grab, I don't believe even Fast Car Eddie would be able to sell this as a stand alone PPV.

    Yeah to be honest, begrudgingly I would. Usually theres nothing on TV on a Saturday night im fortunate enough that 15-20 quid isnt a huge deal to me though id expect a decent undercard. I’m a sucker i get it but what else will i do ? Probably nothing got a young kid so going out regularly on a weekend isnt really an option and cant be arsed with finding a poor quality stream and setting it up on tv. I’m going to buy Whyte vs Rivas even though i have far more interest in Price vs Allen but before i get called a matchroom fanboy i do also buy the PPVs on other channels too. Sure i will get some crap for this, usually i avoid the conversations about the moral right or wrong of buying PPV but there it is.

    Can we just create a justgiving page, all donations do to their retirements and silence?

    No fight, no beef, just **** off and enjoy the lovely money.

    I genuinely think in Khans head, he will fight against Dib, get beat by Pacman and then go on to fight Brook in a final PPV. Don't think that will happen somehow.
