So Whyte-Chisora done approximately 438,000 buys on PPV according to Barb. Eddie's forecast were hugely wrong and no doubt the purses he paid were off the below projections.

Video 1: Play at 04:40, Hearn is comparing an Ortiz-Whyte fight to a Chisora-Whyte fight. He mentions Ortiz as one that does 400,000 buys and Chisora does 800,000 buys. Hearn is out by 362,000.

Video 2: Play at 02:15, Hearn says Whyte-Chisora 2 could do a million PPV buys, he adds that it will certainly do 500,000 or 600,000 PPV buys. Hearn is wrong again, massively.

Doesn't make any difference to my day if they do 10 million buys or 10 buys. Hearn will always give inflated figures and at the least round up to the nearest 100,000 to give it a good spin and try to play up how successful fighter X is for the next round of negotiations with their next opponent.

Mental to think they are splitting millions when neither have (and possibly never will) win a world title.

Hearn always inflates those all important “buy numbers”

Case in point big josh supposedly doing sixteen THOUSAND buys in America against shot old midget Alec Povetkin.

You could tell Hearn wasn’t happy with the PPV numbers in his interview with Kugan.

He said it was “solid” but did less than projected.

He said they were down 30,000 on projections & blamed it on Warrington Frampton
