      They're going to find bodies floating in 2 feet of water over this. There's a reason why Whyte's previous earnings are subject to ridicule.

        Thats the Biden inflation rate..if this isn't proof of being able to put a true boxing superstar in the ring with anyone and get ya money back, then I don't know what is..imo fury is the GOAT at HW, but Whyte is a tune up fight that the British part-timers, pub tossers, and Anglo folks who claim they've seen flying saucers will pay top dollar and heavy pound for both at home and at the gate...I'll watch because I'll watch Fury any time he fights, I am just not sure I'll want to pay the price thats about to come with it.

          They haven't got it back yet - this was about bidding costs, not revenues.

          Do you think they've made their money back? If it was indeed $100M they were paying Fury, he's fought Schwarz, Wallin and two co-promotion fights with Wilder.

          This will be the biggest sole promotion they've done.

The numbers seem disproportionate for this fight, can it make money especially in the era of covid? I can't see where it would be a PPV in the US with less than ideal time slot.
            Do you Americans like late afternoon / early evening boxing from Europe. I'd have thought bbq, beers and a pass from the missus at that time would be just the ticket. Better than the middle of the night which it is the other way around.

              Aus/NZ sport is interesting. For rugby matches such as Lions tours in NZ/Aus, my local opens at 6am for Guiness, sausage sandwich and the match. Very civilised. Wonder if they would do it for Kambosos.

                ... Flying saucers??? You guys are the worst for this you claim you see flying saucers in the middle of the afternoon hovering above Miami beach.... Then there was a spotting of a flying Saucer with rims. You guys are ridiculous, you even have boxers that blame their trainers of espionage and heavy suits. Then you got reality TV celebrities becoming Presidents, then weasel posters portraying themselves as boxing experts ( OBVIOUSLY THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS)

                  Based on what figures?

                  You’re just salty that Big Bank Frank blew your hero out the water at purse bid.

                    Fully expect Arum and Warren have already agreed a stacked card state side and possibly even Australia wise so they’ll recoup their money. Wouldn’t be surprised if Arum tries to target Kambosos Lomachenko in Aus on the same ppv card. At the very least there will be something worth watching from the states too. Boxing fans win - Dillon’s will come to fight and it’ll be a year up whilst it lasts. Will be interesting to see if Fury continues down his Sugar Hill road - makes for entertaining fights but shorter careers. Whilst Dillian hasn’t got Wilder’s punch, I think he’s a much better more rounded fighter and potentially gives Fury as good a fight.
