    he does the same for the likes of ifltv's kugan cassius.
    And ESPN called Rafael into the offices to explain what was going on because this isn't ethical plus they pay Rafael's expenses to fights

    How is paying $99 for an entire year of sport paying Tiffany prices and getting Kay's jewellery? Has Hauser has been taking some of those drugs he enjoys accusing others of taking?

    You're telling me they have 8 million subs for an app that is basically 90% boxing, but only 1.6 million or so people (according to Hearn himself) watched Joshua-Ruiz rematch on a "worldwide" level.
    That is 1.54 million *UK* ppv sales.

    Wilder Ortiz was a bust. The actual numbers are 5 million to Wilder and 1.5 Ortiz. The venue sold 60% capacity and tickets were discounted. It takes 350,000 PPV sales just to cover Wilder and Ruiz guaranteed 6.5 million. If you look back Showtime dumped the fight, they thought 6.5 was a loser.

    The talk about $25 million to Wilder never actually happened, they were always fictitious numbers to hide the lack of intellect that went into boycotting the AJ lottery ticket. The fight was an all around financial beat down, the math was never there.
    How is the 6.5 you stated only covered by $26+million? And how do you know anything about what Wilder is paid except what you hear and read?

    Suuuurrreeeee......he doesn't expect him to say positive things ... sssuuurrreeeeeee.... and it's so funny you use IFLTV as an example ... which should be renamed to HEARNTV.

    DAZN was doomed from the start all thanks to Eddie's arrogance. From day 1 he appeared to be the second coming of Dirty Don King. Telling American fighters he was taking over boxing and if you don't come with him he's shutting you out. His 'plan' was to start off with a few big fights and then everyone would come running over. Deontay Wilder v AJ, Canelo v 3G and Charlo, Tank v Farmer. None of those fights materialized. So when he realized plan A failed, he had to come up with plan B. Plan B consisted of stringing together gimmick fights like Canelo v Kovalev, Haney v nobodies, you tubers, AJ v Fat Andy ll in Saudi Arabia and Andrade on a thursday night. Those fights had no meaning and no one in the boxing world was asking for them. So now on to plan C, which consist of isolating the Mexican American market. But that's not going to work either because damn near 40% of PBC's roster is latino and hispanic and they absolutely love Al Haymon. And for those that think showtime and FOX are going to give up boxing and DAZN is going to take over, think again. But lets play your game and say that does happen, you do realize Haymon will just create the PBC App. So here's to a prosperous boxing 2020 year, probably the last one for DA-ZASTER!

    Couldnít be happier to see them struggling badly as far as the costs compared to the revenue. What did dummy Hearn expect tooting his horn about how much money DAZN had, then they went out and paid 365M to a guy that canít even control and get the fights they want out of him. Of course every fighter and their outfits were gonna take DAZN to the cleaners, itís just smart business they are billions into this venture with a thin roster, theyíll pay. Now Hearn talking about raising the price so they can save some sort of face. Good luck with that, thereís plenty of ways to stream for free and they wonít ever be able to shut that down. I pay for DAZN monthly when thereís a fight I wanna watch and then cancel it right after, If they raise the price Iíll just go back to doing it how I always did.

    it merely quotes john skipper, the bit where he's quoted from an interview with boxingscene is very small. hauser just quotes stuff skipper has said in other interviews with other ppl.
    furthermore none of the information relevant to their 'business model' was used here.

    he lacks credibility because he's for hire.
    it didnt go unnoticed that after he put out the antimatchroom/whyte articles..hje was then sitting next to eddie hearn.
    prob got paid off by dazn.
    suddenly the guy is praising them whilst appearing impartial.
    sure.

    he was anti al haymon, then became pro al haymon after he was paid off
