Hope GGG beats that drug cheating diva again, but actually gets his hand raised this time

Anyone that buys that Whyte PPV is off their head

Why? Solid headline fight & solid undercard?

£20

A fight not even for a belt, or both no where near the best in the division
Brook against a no one, squash match
Connor Been who is not very good in a rematch
Guessing Katie Taylor

Should be a normal Sky card, PPV should be top fights not bleeding Dillian Whyte vs Joseph Parker

Chisora fights Takem on the Whyte-Parker bill.

Whyte Parker is a decent match up, belt or no belt...

Taylor & Brook are big names for the casual.

The first Benn Reynaud was a great scrap, more of the same this time round hopefully.

Summers is a good step up for Buatsi, plus Takam Chisora could be decent.

Happy to part with a score for all of that...

its a good fight but not worth PPV. We are already paying more for sky sports than all of the other channels put together (bar cinema. The non ppv cards are absolutely awful these days.

PPV was supposed to be for the very top fights.

I think its time to cancel my sky sports.

It's more worthy of PPV than the majority of the AJ fights have been, excluding Joshua/Wlad and Joshua/Parker

At least in them fights, you've got a headline fighter and fight, sort of worth it, personally don't think it's PPV but fair enough but Whyte vs Parker as a headliner with Brook vs a no one, a basically retired Chisora and Katie Taylor is not a £20 card on top of the already astronomical cost on top of normal sky

Lewis Ritson decked Hyland Jr three times in the first round last night to win a Lonsdale belt outright. Time for him to step up?
