    I feel your pain. I'm on the East Coast of the US as well. I guess I should have clarified that....when I say I watch around 8pm, I meant 8-10pm and that's usually the undercard.

    I'm so used to watching fights later in the evening that I will watch fights from UK/Europe at the same time even tho they happened earlier in the day. If there are multiple cards that day/evening, it's brutal because I will end up going to bed around 3am.

      I predict that there is going to be a brawl outside of the ring, during this build up.

      I can just envision Whyte reacting to Fury's antics if he tries to Harass and belittle him.

      I never usually pay attention to the under-card, but? I am interested on what other fighters will be supporting this event.

      If they want to build a good event, make it a all heavyweight card. From top to bottom, every single fight a heavyweight clash.

        Love all the investment bankers on here with their take on the fight finances. Cuz yeah - you Eddie fanboys are smarter than Arum. Guy is a mobster, but a brilliant SOB

          Wahhhhh! Rematchroom & daddy eddie lost the purse wahh wahh wahh.

          I agree the fight will be lucky to break even but paying Whyte more would help? & only Rematchroom hypejob's pay the extra to insert they're coward's clause clinging onto the belts, stagnating the sport.

            The split is 80 20 yes.
            But that is after the wbc decided to hold back 10% for the winner. & that 10% comes out of the purses also 80 20 if that makes any sense xD

              If Hearn was staging the show, the cheating would be much harder.
              Did you see Hearn card & Hatton jnr?
              Did you see the Aj Parker ref stop the fight every time Parker hit back.

              Hearn card's are the surest thing in betting.

                  Furys going to play nice in those press conferences and be complementary, we’re going to see the look of respect for once because he knows what’s coming fight night . Whyte already threatened him he better watch himself the fight may take place before outside the ring Whyte will go looking for him .

I know u Hearniacs are desperate for some kind of W but this is a massive fight in the UK and a half decent one in the US since Tyson Fury just went went on an epic showdown with their own heavyweight champion. This fight sells and everyone knows it, hence why Hearn was trying to scrimp off step aside money from it.
                    Is it really that big of a fight in the UK? Honest question because I was under the impression Fury wasn't liked and supported by the masses there?

                    As for here in the States,if its on ppv here, it will not sell for shiet,especially it being live around what noon? Those "epic" showdowns with Wilder did nothing for his popularity here and cant see many of us sitting home around noon to purchase a Fury ppv.Bob is better off putting in on ESPN here stateside.

                      Matchroom had the most amount of upsets last year.
