I could be wrong but I don't think that War Of The Roses show was PPV.
It was PPV. I believe there was talk of it being bumped down when Macklin-Barker fell through, but it remained on Box Office I believe.

Anyway, what a load of clickbaity shite that article is. Brook-Jennings was third or fourth on a seven-fight bill. It's like saying Scott Quigg holds the record for most PPV sales because he appeared on the undercard of AJ-Wlad.

And it was a great show. Probably my favourite PPV purchase. It's a shame it has the distinction of being the lowest selling.

Going by their logic King Clev sold millions of PPV's in the US when he fought Jack, while Mayweather was also on the card. :shifty

For the past nine years, and to this day, Kel Brook is part of the lowest selling Pay Per View of all time in the United Kingdom.

Brook’s 2010 PPV against Michael Jennings on Sky Box Office sold a pathetic 15,000 buys, according to the official Broadcasters’ Audience Research Board ratings.

This is a bit weird. Brook - Jennings wasn’t even the main event, there was about 4 more fights after it.

It’s a bit like Joshua - Miller doing shit numbers & then saying Buatsi’s PPV numbers are shit as he was on the undercard

Magnificent Seven was it? Was Khan-Maidana after?

I definitely watched the two bills in the same place, but cant recall if it was the same night.

Yeah, that was the Magnificent Seven bill.

I had a check and Khan-Maidana happened three months later :lol: Khan's fight, however, was packaged as part of another UK show which also featured Kell, so you weren't far off.

Had to check now you've said that :lol:

Both also featured Clev, Degale and Macklin. I'm claiming the 'W'.

The figures are completely wrong and a load of rubbish.

Froch vs Kessler was a sellout at the O2. 20,000 people bought tickets to a show that sold out in minutes but only 32,000 watched on TV? Article is tarkin’ rubbish.
