Donít think a title really matters for it being on PPV but just not sure it feels like a PPV fight. Iíll definitely pay for it though, thatís if I donít go to it.

Parker will be the favourite for me but such a good fight.

It needs a good undercard thatís for sure.

Iíll buy it just because itís a very good fight even if it doesnít feel like it should be on PPV. Much rather pay for this than AJ vs a knock over or whatever.

I will begrudgingly pay for it as well. I suppose if they get enough peope who will begrudginly pay for it they can justify being a PPV fight

Two well matched top 10 heavy weight fighters, should make a good fight.

I don't believe it should be a SKY box office fight, Sky Sports subscribers must wonder why they still pay a subscription fee when they compare it with what BT sports subscribers get for their subscription fee with it's BT Sport, ESPN, BoxNation content.

I can see it being a good fight.

But it should never be a PPV, especially with no title belts on the line.

Absolute con by Skysports yet again.

£20 for a night if boxing is hardly breaking the bank. I dont mind paying for a decent heavyweight fight, hoping the card will be decent also

I'll pay for it. Is a good pairing.
I fancy a Parker win here.
As said, hopefully a decent undercard as well.
Fair play to Whyte as he's taking a risk here. He's there or there abouts for a mandatory at the minute, so could have taken on a lesser name and remained in the top 1 or 2. Winning this fight just about guarantees a world title shot however. Not sure where it leaves him if he loses though.

I like the fight but it's definitely not a PPV fight unless the card is stacked.

I heard Brook is fighting on that date, so maybe they will have him on this card.

"£20 for a night if boxing is hardly breaking the bank."

I feel like you or someone else says this every time there's a PPV that some of us feel like it's unworthy. I don't think anyone has ever said that £20 is breaking the bank but that doesn't mean people should just throw £20 at something because it isn't breaking the bank.

Brook against a decent opponent would justify the PPV.

Like I said earlier I'll end up paying for it because I like both fighters and it should be a competitive fight but it's never a PPV on its own.

I'm not a fan of Parker at all. I've watched him against Takam, Ruiz jr, Fury and Joshua. Every single time he's looked bang average. I think Whyte beats him up. Parker won't be as cagey as he was against Joshua and it potentially could turn in to a great scrap. Can't see it doing big numbers on ppv. Maybe 150k tops. If Brook is on the card and there's a couple of good world title fights it might push 300k but I doubt it.

I fancy Parker to win but only just. Will probably go back and watch some fights when it gets closer. I always thought Parker was fairly easy to hit but he did well with his movement against AJ and didn't really get caught with anything big. Can he do the same against Whyte but do enough offensively to win the fight? Whyte don't exactly have great feet so I dunno if he will struggle to catch up to Parker if that's the approach Parker takes.

If it turns into a scrap then it's anyone's guess, Parker has the speed and Dillian has more strength on the inside.

This is exactly why I said we are entering a golden era for the heavyweight division, not in terms of quality but in terms of competitiveness and a willingness for them all to fight each other.

Yeah there are loads of competitive match ups at Heavyweight. I'd love it if the super series got hold of them, as unlikely as that is of course. Klitschko was hinting at a return in an interview I seen recently as well.

Would love Wlad to return but only if he's going to prove himself and not just jump in with an AJ rematch after 2 years or whatever, that's just a money grab.

If he came back and beat the winner of Whyte vs Parker or someone like that and then challenged Wilder or AJ again that would be good.

Hearn will claim it's the only way he could make this fight.

Hearn(Matchroom promotions) just lost the purse bid for Whyte Vs Pulev. He was saying it would have cost him to much money make that fight. Matchroom only bid $831,111 compared to winning bid from Epic Sports & Entertainment $1,500,111.

As it only costing £20 to watch average 1 off Matchroom event on Sky Box office. I agree it not to much for once a month, but when you look at content you can get for less than that per month from BT Sport it's a poor deal.

BT sport offers you all BT sport,BTESPN, BoxNation content for less, the deal includes all top sports and for fight fans best promotions/events from Queensberry promotions, Ultimate Fighting Championship, Top Rank.

Hearn has confirmed that he thinks Brook will be on the undercard and that there will be another big heavyweight fight and a world title fight on the undercard.

That makes it less emotional for me to part with my money if they're decent fights [:D]

To be honest I thought I'd already saw that Brook was fighting in America but I must have not read it properly. It wasn't a great opponent either.

I don't think he will fight anyone as poor as Rabchenko but I don't think it will be anyone good either.

Hurd is ridiculously big for a light-middleweight. I've no idea how he gets down to that weight. When he's stood next to super-middleweights, he looks bigger than them. That said, he is very, very easy to hit. If he get in with someone with real accuracy, timing and power, they might be able to crack his chin with accumulation. He just had a close fight with Lara, but Lara isn't the type to sit down on his shots.

I'd have to see how Brook looks these days against a decent fighter at 154 before predicting that one. The general feeling is Hurd would be too big and relentless, but Brook could also be landing at will all night, so who knows. Interesting fight, depending on what Brook still has left.

I still think Brook is no joke. Going up to fight GGG was almost an impossible task, as was dropping 2 weight divisions back to a division he struggled to make already to fight Spence. If he still has something in the tank and is at a healthy weight, he will show his quality.

I agree top fighter that has been poorly managed at times. Should have been remember as great but never got fights he needed. Then got two crazy fights when shouldn't got them.

It would be interesting to Brook & Spence at healthy weight for Brook. Still think Spence might have to much for him but would be much better fight if Brook wasn't trying make weight like had to for that fight.

Should be a good fight but I really fancy Parker in this one. He's a quality young heavyweight who is still learning and I really liked his performance against Joshua. The score cards were much too wide in relation to what actually happened and Joshua respected Parker much more than he did Whyte. That reveals a great deal, and although Whyte was inexperienced I'm not sure how much scope he actually has. He's a good boxer but Parker is a level above him.
