Whilst it should be a decent scrap, this isn't a fight worthy of PPV status so I can't see them getting many buys.

If it doesn't involve a Brit fighting for a world title, it shouldn't be on Box Office.

I do like boxing - watched the entire show on SKY last night.

Spending 19.95 PPV on a Saturday night is far cheaper than going out with my dear wife for some liquid refreshments and a meal in an expensive restaurant so I shall be more than willing to pay and watch this and other fights on the bill !

I don't think that this fight will catch the imagination of the British public as others have done in recent times.

It's also 19.95 more expensive than your existing subscription for Sky Sports, that should be showing it.

If people buy the fights that shouldn't be on PPV, they'll all end up that way.

Great fight with the winner right in the mix.

Bloody ridiculous to be pay-per-view though.

SKY would justify this based on the following :

Parker : WBO Champion 1 loss 72% knock-our rate.Granite chin,never been knocked down.
Whyte : No 4 in WBC 1 loss 71% knock-out rate.

Also might be a very good undercard.

Not sure I will pay for this however White has improved since he lost to Joshua and I think he can be a serious contender.

 


One more point

You didn't see his last fight then?

And it's Sky, not SKY, as it's not an acronym.

Whyte is ranked 1 by the WBC after Wilder, the so called Silver Champion, even though they made Breazeale Wilder's mandatory.

If the card is stacked then I'd be ok with ppv. For me it's always about the card with a ppv.

Whyte and Parker are top five and that's worthy of a watch.

We are living through a good era of heavyweights and Hearn and Sky have done remarkable things for boxing in the country.

I understand what you are saying.

Some might not be too enthusiastic at the present time but as the fight approaches, with all the hype and exposure,I suspect many will take much more of an interest.I am really looking forward to the encounter.

I for one really enjoy the SKY boxing coverage either PPV or non-PPV.
Much better than going out with my wife on a Saturday night !!!!

I think we could both have a good guess at a few people who will be on the undercard to help sell this. Buatsi, Okolie, Joyce etc. but only Yeleussinov has been confirmed against an opponent TBC. Thankfully Eddie has worked out that no one in England wants to see Ireland's Katie Taylor and he's now promoting her mainly in America.

Sensible.....I only want to see women's boxing if they are going to fight topless.....like the men.

It's only right and all....equality and all that.
