Khan put up a fantastic display last night, but the show in general was a big let down for a ppv event.

There was plenty of fights on the card but we only got to see:

a dull encounter at domestic level between Small and Hall
3 young talents unloading against overmatched opposition.(4 round fights in a ppv!)
and a 1 sided world title fight (due to khans great display)

No kell Brook,no Enzo and no Mitchell.

I thought PPV was all about top level fights, yet there was only 1 fight worthy of the boxoffice.

Any thoughts.

agreed

warren was on talksport radio this morning and said to look out for kell brook and also mitchell's fight highlights on sky this coming friday

ffs , people paid money for a ppv and this cunt is waxing lyrical the next day about fights no cunt seen !

i actually had itv4 on aswell , enjoyed the cleverley fight , unfortunately warren also mentioned that he was one of his fighters enjoying success on another card and said that he would be a world champion in a year .

also regarding khan v hatton , warren said that he didnt want to see hatton fight any longer and would advise for health reasons that ricky stop and if he was his manager he would hope ricky would call it a day because of the manner of the ko's & suggesting that people around ricky should encourage the guy to quit now ,it was like a heart felt plea ............the cunt then went on to say that 'business is business' and he would happily see khan fight him!!

They should have shown Brook, Enzo and Mitchell (or just two of them) instead of the Olympic trio, who have no business on PPV yet

In fact, Warren/Sky refusing to make them fights that aren't on PPV is really holding back their careers

The Khan and Hall vs Small fights were the only ones worth watching . The olympians shouldnt have been on ppv against the opposition they were fighting. I thought the main event came round very quick.I didint think i got my moneys worth because when they did show repeats of the Brook and Maccarinelli fights they only showed the third round of each ffs but imo the Khan fight did make up for ot a bit.

Yes was let down, but anyone with half a brain could tell you it was never a PPV card.

I along with 28,000 other people watched a perfect stream on JTV for FREE.

Suck on that one Frank:owned:

Aye it was another joke by the clown Wank Warren, people need to stop giving this cunt money, Streams are the way to go for that.

Even if it was delayed coverage after the Khan fight they should have showed Enzo, Kell and Mitchell. I can live with the card being mostly domestic (sort of live with it) but they should have put more on the PPV.

I suppose the way forward is to vote with your feet, boycott the PPV and watch it online for free.

Yeah I almost feel like I was robbed but then again I was the dip**** who handed over my wallet. Was actually beyond a **** PPV Card, I don't ever wanna even hear the olympians names again until they have at least a 15-0 record. The card would have been made 100 times better by having the Enzo and Brook fights instead of the olympians. I was flicking between the Sky PPV and the ITV4 show and i'm ashamed to say that the ITV4 show was actually much much better, at first I was watching the Small-Hall fight and watching a minute of ITV4 inbetween rounds, after the 2nd round of Small-Hall I switched to watching 3 minutes of Cleverly-McIntosh and 1 minute of Small-Hall. All in all I was very disappointed with the value for money aspect of the PPV, I have only bought a Khan fight once before and that was.... the Prescott fight, and the Undercard and 50something seconds of that fight was better value than this awful awful awful PPV. Don't get me wrong was great to see Khan win the world title but if I could pick a price I'd say I should have paid about 3.99. Not buying a Khan/Sky PPV from here on in unless he faces someone like JMM, especially considering we can download this **** straight from this forum less than 12 hours after the fight.

Well there was about 30k of us (when Khan was on) watching from some stream, i know it can hurt boxing with people doing this but really this card did not deserve to be paid for!

Khan was taken to PPV too early, that why he was beasted by Prescott and even though he won this one, the whole undercards was a joke and fights were not broadcast here but in other countries like the Macca fight.

****in joke.

I agree 100%, I spent more of the night watching ITV4 than I did the PPV. The undercard on the Khan fight was embarrassingly ****, Small - Hall wasn't too bad but where the **** were Enzo, Brook, Mitchell? They advertised all those fights and we didn't get them.

I won't be buying another British PPV as 15 is too much for what we got.

K.Brook was defending his title and that wasn't worth to be on PPV?
Instead the were shown a couple of 4 rounders where bums were fighting warren's olympians..shame.
Im not british, on the other side of the pond, but what i have seen so far from K. Brook is promising and should not be left to youtube clips. Seems that Warren is not the right promoter for K. Brook, that's for sure. He needs to change promotor, defending a british title is the main event and in this case it should have been a co-main event fight like Small-Hall

Indeed man, if i didn't have access to you tube and this place i wouldn't know who the **** Kell Brook was and im english. Kind of messed up really if u think about it if i pay for a pvp card i dont really like 3 x 1st round KO and only 1 fight going the distance..

Warren is bull****. With his tactics in promoting fights, its no surprise that the best guys never fight each other in the U.K, instead they have 20/30 warm up fights then fight someone who punches like a grandma for a "world title" ala Khan, Audinary Harrison etc. Regarding K. Brook, I just dont think Warren likes fighters that come out of the Ingle stable. Hatton was only ever a decent U.K level fighter, as is Khan, but Warren dont care about the best boxers making it to the top, only making **** loads of money with his most profitable fighters having easy fights. Its been the same way since Hatton ducked Witter for years. Its a shame that the amount of success and exposure a fighter can have in the U.K is decided by how much money he can make rather than how well he can box.

Yeah totally agree, Kell Brook should be asking serious questions as to why he wasn't on the PPV, especially as they are trying to now set up a semi-big domestic bout between Kell and Michael Jennings. As I said before I don't wanna hear or see any of those olympians again until they are 15-0 and taking on proper challenges.
