    I've been saying this for years now. They didn't have any follow up fights to the in house fights they had. You could literally count down the fights until it eventually came to this point. Devin Haney and Danny Jacobs already bounced. So now all they have left is Canelo v 3G v Andrade v Mungia, and aint none of them fighting each other. ODLH probably will move his stable to Thrilla or Showtime. So they have to overpay to get the Canelo v Plant because if Canelo gets a taste of that PPV action again he's gone forever.

    Don King was the greatest promoter in history for the fans….definitely not for the fighters. His PPV cards were legendary
    Yep the fighters were robbed blind and most of them died broke and alone but the fans got STACKED cards everytime

    Hughie Fury (who know one care s about) beat Sam Sexton(who know one cares about) a couple of years back on Channel5 in the UK (which no one watches) and drew 2.9 million viewers with a promoter Mick Hennessey (who even his own mother doesn't know)

    Soon you'll have more people from outside the US watching those US shows than anything ESPN or FOX can manage given the numbers Coppinger was quoting and the new launches I don't think thats even debatable now.


    I hundred percent agree with you. Yes, boxing is very popular in the U.K. Always has and always will be but not here in the U.S. The market where Eddie Hearn is attempting to expand both his empire and base to.

    Moreover, you're absolutely correct when you say that online streaming is hugely popular yes; Indeed it is. Most people prefer their entertainment over the internet which is a fact. However the sport of boxing is not one of them. Especially stateside among the casual viewer.

    Casual fans are less likely to download a boxing app if they don't know the combatants who are fighting. It's because they wouldn't know who are they are without any type of television exposure. DAZN is extremely popular among boxing fans but not with casual fans.

    I agree with the fact they dont promote any fights they have on the app. It would be beneficial to pay for advertising on cable tv for their fighters. Especially the bigger names or the up and comers. Promotion is key to reaching the broader audience that really doesnt the regular boxing schedule. I noticed ESPN has been promoting Lomo again and it's odd to me they promote him but most Top Rank fighters only get a slight mention during a broadcast. There really isnt any loud mouth Don King promoters anymore that tried to stay in front of any camera that would show their face. Don King was a douche bag but he at least got fighters names out there for the public to hear it.

    I’m guessing FOX gets the plant fight. The promotion of the fight suits FOX more than it does dayzin. That is unless dayzin deliberately lets people know they can see the fight for $20 rather than $80, this will take them
    actually promoting and advertising though. I’ve heard dayzin does PPV now but I don’t know what they charge for that since I don’t trade with dayzin.
    Ya I’m sure canelo and “dayzin” will overlook the fact that plant is a scrub with a weak resume and no fans and just hand canelo over to them on a platter. Makes sense.

    Good luck on signing Olympians Eddie because no fighter wants to begin their professional careers by fighting underground on the world wide web with no television exposure involved. They will be very hard to find and noticed that way. You will have trouble building their profiles and a fanbase among the casual fan on DAZN.
