    Christ. This is why boxing is on its arse. £25. You can get to football for that.

    Okolie is smashing this. Can't see this lasting another round.

    Boxing hasn't been on it's arse for a few year's now, though I agree the price is totally stupid. If it wasn't for lockdown and not having much to look forward to entertainment-wise, I wouldn't have paid for it.

    Good performance from AJ so far, took a breather in the 4th though.

    Fair point. I just get fucked off when I see pricing like this and remember the days when a big fight was on proper telly - usually ITV. At the very least, you had the British boxers on free to air and everybody watched it together.

    Now we've got an honest to god fucking mega star of the sport and it's in an almost empty arena behind a £25 paywall.

    Guaranteed the Fury fight is in Dubai. Just rankles me, especially at a time when we want kids to get inspired and into sport.

    Very good indeed. Impressive performance, despite Pulevs age. He's no mug.

    Yeah, not sure how they can justify the price (probably idiots like myself buying it). I doubt I'd be a boxing fan if it wasn't for them being on ITV when I was a kid.

    @RGeefe

    Got to be going back at least 30yrs for a big fight on terrestrial tv. That genie isnít going back in the bottle.

    Was just thinking about the last terrestrial boxing fight I remember. Might have been something like Audley Harrison Vs Danny Williams on 5? Could be completely wrong though. Anyone?

    Pretty sure Haye had a couple of fights on ITV. The last mega fight I remember was Lewis Rachmann, would be about 20 years ago

    You know it's not a professionally sanctioned fight? So it's just some twat off the internet fighting a failed UFC fighter rather than, emergherd boxing is a joke.

    It will be a pro bout apparently, but yeah, it has basically no relevance to 'proper' boxing, other than there will likely be other (actual) professionals on the card. It's not like there will be title or ranking ramifications.

    DAZN is 2 quid a month at the moment

    Pretty good content (even without the boxing fights) for the price of a coffee

    Pro combat sports are fast becoming a joke. Stop debasing it by sanctioning these stupid fucking fights, leave it at white collar level

    probably of very little interest to most but Joseph Parker has finally left trainer Kevin Barry.

    Barry tends to pick up any NZ talent and get them to a decent pro level but ultimately they all turn out to be fairly one dimensional in the ring.

    Anyway be interested to see if a new trainer can take that Parker to the level required to be a title contender.

    I think they are fighting around 10.15 - 10.30.
