Not getting drawn into the hype about Bellew here, Sky trying their best. Evs looks a great bet with Boyles on the Welsh kid.

bellew will stop Cleverly this time, and I say that through gritted teeth cos I can't stand the bloke. Clev gone at the game and Bellew at a more natural weight.

agree re bellew more natural at weight.. i think its cos i think he's so crap tht i want him to lose so bad and its making me more bias to clev who i actually dont mind. Clev cud defo outbox him its just a given that he'll get involved

I've never rated either of them tbh mate, but Clev just looks a broken man since the Krusher defeat and I can't see him even getting back to the level he was at before never mind improving, which I think he'll need to to beat Bellew up at Cruiser.

It goes without saying they both get smashed against the Hucks, Olas and Lebedevs

Are you astounded though mate? I never fault it was possible to be worse than Warren but Mr Slimey is going some. You know what's next Froch next fight PPV Quigg Frampton PPV Khan Brook PPV. Think about it people Bellew Cleverly no belt probably both finished £15.95 BoxNation Kovalev Hopkins Pacquiao Algeri Chisora V Fury Saunders V Korobov and various other fight for £12. Boycott it or British titles will be PPV next

I'd have struggled to watch these 2 if it was on standard Sky Sports SJ. I certainly won't be forking out £15 to watch 1 shot fighter v 1 insanely average fighter. We also have Selby in a final eliminator and I think I even read Callum Smith could be fighting for an eliminator too?

was genuinely surprised at this, it's a fight I've absolutely minimal interest in. No way in the world I'll be paying for it. Says its the only way he can stack the card...simple answer to that Eddie...don't stack the ****g card...you've still got to get your fighters fights and its not like there's a massive demand to see them all on the same night.

Let's say he lives up to his promise (no sure thing obviously) and gets 7 or 8 good fights on there...what's the point? Just means the following few months on regular sky would be even more watered down than usual.

Big event my arse...in a 10k arena?...it's all a load of cobblers, Matchroom and Sky have obviously set in stone 2-3 PPVs a year from now on...whether they can find fights that merit one or not.

We've just got to hope the casuals don't get sucked in by the inevitable hype...if they make a pile on this it will be ****g open season from then on

Calum Smith or maybe its Sprott who is on loads eh Crazy Man's a clown.

How do these defences get sanctioned? He's challenged for a world title before?

Hearn has pretty much admitted himself in that interview that they are going after the casual fan. It s gonna be pantomine season, expect an appearance from Ric Flair soon

I am amazed Sky sanctioned Sky Box Office for this. I thought they had learned their lesson a few years ago that just throwing everything on Box Office doesn't work. It has to be something that really gets the fans going.

This simply isn't a PPV card. I won't be buying this. And surely hardly anyone will.

According to Dan Rafael it wasn't Eddie's call. So Sky really think they can sell this?
By:

When: 02 Oct 14 00:17
Hearn looked a bit rattled in that last video, clearly wasn't expecting quite such a backlash.

The only people who'll buy this are the casuals who get hoodwinked by skysports news...we all know how much interest they show in 'stacked' undercards so good luck impressing them...with any luck the main event will be over in a round and there'll be uproar again.

Anyway, anybody like the Curtis Stevens ko tonight @ 2/1? Got to be worth a tickle with them whiskers of Ndam's surely?

It was clear when these two clowns boxed on the same card that it was going be ppv, Hearn is talking complete garbage when he says he was not sure if it was going to be or not. I would love to have time to stop this crap and organise a proper campaign and boycott all his shows.

I can't see it being anything but a total flop.

Was there any need to stack this card, why not just spread these fights across multiple shows. It's not like there's anything on there unmakeable without PPV.

It will only be the start if it's successful. If it isn't it will be a warning to Sky that you can't just put on any old rubbish and expect people to buy it. A lesson I thought they had learned after Haye vs Harrison.

I think they have vastly overestimated the popularity after some recent successes. The problem is the stacking of the card doesn't even work for me. The hardcore fan is probably not very interested in the main event, and is unlikely to buy it out of principle. The casual fan won't sit through 7 fights anyway. It's always the main event that ends up being the draw card and for me Cleverly vs Bellew isn't it.

This is just pure greed. Sky are losing the Champions league next year. How can they justify charging for this fight on top of your sub fee. I'm against ppv but if it's going to happen it should be only for really big fights. This is not a big fight and i hope nobody pays for it.

In terms of the fights being interesting no, not really. The only real 50:50 fight is the main event. The rest are step ups in class for most the Hearn fighters, but still fights you'd expect them to win easily.

I think the best way to sell a PPV is to have a main event that will sell and maybe a good chief support fight. Beyond that I'm not really sure 7 fights sells. Hearn is saying it will start about 6pm and finish around midnight, but how many people are going to watch it for 6 hours. That's too long to catch most people's attention.

On a couple of occasions his chin has not looked bomb proof and he certainly would not want to jeopardize a ppv fight with Frampton.

Any boxing fan who is not bothered about football will surely ditch Sky Sports : subscription just gone up to £24.50 pm and it doesn't even cover a domestic level fight between has beens .

Sky losing the champions league next year and are charging for this fight. Totally wrong way to go. This is a domestic fight and should not be on box office. Imo no fight should be but this one for sure does not merit box office. Just trying to milk people.
