I've seen it all now

ITV have launched ITV box office and will show Eubank Jr. Next year

They want us to PAY to watch this idiot

The world is ending people

The annoying thing is, this will fail miserably and ITV will probably sack off boxing again. Whoever thought this was a good idea needs a slap. Truly idiotic.

Renold who?

Didn't ITV try something similar with the football best part of 20 years ago only for it to bomb spectacularly?  Even a quid wouldn't be competitive pricing for this as a PPV.

Let's wait until the price is confirmed...I don't mind paying up to 99p for this one.

Exactly......only need to ask any boxing fan with an iota of sense for an opinion to see how stupid an idea this is. Great for ITV to dip their toe back into boxing, but putting Eubank Jnr on PPV against a nobody is absolutely ludicrous. Whoever has come up with and/or OK'd this idea should be shot.

In fairness his opponent has recently knocked out Daniel Geale who you could argue until Kell Brook was one of Golovkins biggest wins.

PPV side of it is a joke mind.

Are you saying that Kell Brook was a bigger win for GGG then Geale? I'm not sure either were that great a win tbh....I'd have them on level par.

Geale was a good win for Barker though.

Yeah of course he is Brook would do a number on Geale at any weight.

The point I was making is that Quinlan must have something about him to match Golovkins best win prior to Brook.

Well not really. Golovkin beat Geale at a time where although he was a big favourite some still gave Geale a chance. No one ever gave Brook a chance because he never had one.

Also I don't think Geale was Golovkins best win prior to Brook and I don't think Brook is his best win either, Murray takes that mantel imo as he made Golovkin work for it.

Beating Geale isn't a claim to fame. Eubank makes this guy quit...easy.

Quite a few people gave Brook a chance including myself. The pretty much certainty that Brook would demoslish Geale at any weight is enough for me to say that it is a bigger win.

I also didn't say beating Geale is a claim to fame. Golovkin was highly praised and considered supremely talented when stopping Geale convincingly rightly or wrongly.. however Quinlan is a nobody and a no hoper apparently. I've no doubt Eubank Jr will destroy him I'm just not keen on the double standards in order to have another dig at the Eubanks.

Does ITV not understand the formula of PPV ?

i.e. You build and build a fighter, or two fights with a rivalry - until the public are bursting at the seems to see them settle things ?

Putting Eubank Jr in with a complete unknown straight off the bat is not very clever and will likely kill their ideas of doing more after just 1 event.

The annoying thing is i quite like watching Junior box, but him and his teams antics are just a complete turn off.

Id rather not pay for this, and wont..

Wouldn't surprise me if its just 'hype' to keep junior relevant as his boxing isnt at the moment

I don't think this is going to be 20 on ITV Box Office...or even 2.99

There will be no fee to pay on Feb 4th...

Because the fight simply will not happen...

This is God's prediction

No news on a venue, ticketing, details on exactly how to purchase the PPV etc and we're almost in January

Sky could wait until a couple weeks before as most are accustom to their set up but this ITV nonsense should have been presented weeks back. I still have no idea why anyone would pay for this. Don't even think I'd watch it if it were on channel 5.

Ryder v Etches is a good fight. Price can win in 10 seconds but he's still another k.o waiting to happen, Eubank will win with ease and Galahad being fed a tomato can.

Due to all the bickering on social media a lot of people do seem to know about the fight. With Hearn & W***** slagging both Eubanks off it does seem to have got people talking. How many of the casuals who know about it who will actually buy it is another matter?

Remember though Haye's comeback virtually sold out the O2 against a nobody in what everyone expected, and was, a 1 round KO. Its amazing what some people will buy into.

Not seen anything on ITV as yet. It certainly won't get nearly as much hype as a Sky PPV.

It's a shame it isn't on free ITV1 as this could have been a good re-introduction to boxing for them with a better PPV (if necessary) down the line

I can't imagine anyone who doesn't follow the Eubanks or ifilm on twitter, or go on to the forums know anything about this fight.
Looking at the card this could have been a decent return for ITV boxing free to air, could have generated some interest in Eubanks jr from the Saturday night audience and for all the mocking could have been a good event.
BUT then they go and add in those 3 little letters ppv... and turn this in to a complete cluster F*ck of an event which seems as though it's been organised by the cast of the undateables.
Absolute shambles.

Can't see it doing more than 5k buys.
No one even knows how to buy the thing or if the POV transmission will work. It will end up with some 'technical glitch' and be free to air on channel number 66675776 on your sky box.

It's interesting because it has got people talking about the fight, and now the Eubanks have been on ITV's Good Morning with Piers Morgan and they've been on Talksport as well now.

The best thing Hearn and W***** could have done is just not spoken about the fight, just brushed off any questions with a response like "it's not even worth talking about", but because the Eubanks wind them up so much, I think their interviews with IFL TV have actually done the Eubanks a favour because it's brought more publicity to it...I think though that quite a few casuals will probably buy it though, probably of the older generation who remember his Dad's fight, just off of the old man's name alone...what's going to hamper things is that ITV haven't given out any details on how to purchase etc, unless their plan is an intense promotion during fight week

I do agree that they should have aired it free on ITV 1 by way of re-introducing boxing to ITV, then looked to do PPV for a PPV justifiable fight (i.e. GGG)

There's been some reference to the Hull card on this thread.

Tell you what ........ I know he's had some personal issues and that ....... but I bet Luke Campbell didn't think he'd be fighting on Gavin McDonnell undercards in an ice-rink four and a half years after turning over.

Luke Campbell....two steps forward one step back.

Yeah a year of proper free to view on prime time Saturday night would have done them the world of good but hey ho, I can't see it selling massive and I really can't understand the business plan.

Out of 100 of my FB mates I would say 5 could tell you who Lomachenko is, 10 GGG, the majority who Joshua is. More than half will know the Eubank name but maybe 5 can name me someone Jr fought. A random casual may by the PPV off the back of the name but I can't see it doing big numbers. Especially when tech savvy will stream it.

He's playing 2nd fiddle to a world title fight, I'm sure he accepts that is the headline fight.

He didn't actually make his debut until July 2013 but I get your point, his career definitely isn't where probably he and his team expected. He bounced back from the defeat well tho IMO. Needs to really be stepped up after this one.

In his home town though. I remember Froch fighting some polish dude called Rybacki in Nottingham...he was still main event even though Junior Witter v Timothy Bradley's title fight was on the card.

Surely Campbell needs to step up now and fight for something.

I get the impression that Campbell doubts himself....why he hasn't pushed for a rematch v Mendy baffles me. Mendez was a decent opponent but now he's heading backwards again fighting Lopez?? 

Nothing adds up for a guy that talks about fighting for a world title he's just getting further away.

I think you could be right...I think a carefully crafted advert aired on ITV 1 along the lines of "as we launch our new groundbreaking box office channel, witness the Eubank legacy continue, as the son of the legendary "simply the best" fights for his first world title against the feared Renold Quinlan" will draw in a fair few casual mugs for that price

Mate, it's a real catch 22 situation, because like you've said, I want to see the sport grow with ITV getting involved and would love to see it get to the point where there are genuine PPV fights such as if Eubanks was to fight Golovkin, but it's hard to help them build to that point through such a BS PPV fight as what they are going to be putting on...why they just didn't just put one on ITV 1 and then build the PPV channel with a better match-up is beyond me

I think it's more a case of having to or no one would 'pre buy' the next one .

I quite simply have no idea how many they'd do then it's working out the profit compared to free to air and advertising revenue..

Saturday night TV there is not a lot a of space because when your fighting the X factor (insert other shit show) then advertisers pay top top premium for it .

It's a business and depends on fights cut blah blah blah .

I can't see them doing another. I'm stuck in with 2 kids tonight and I'll not be paying for it. I've just taken four of us to the vue for less than 10 .

So up to now....

Selby was in a decent fight he clearly won on points.

Galahad's opponent was a last minute thing and performed as such. Waste of time though not Galahad's fault.

The Ryder Etches fight was a belter some heavy bombs thrown by both, Ryder had Etches going for the majority of the fight and fully deserved the win.

And Price so far as looked, well, crap. And this is against Christian Hammer.

Sometimes looks quality when throwing combinations up close. That reckless swinging from long range and missing badly happens too often. And he thinks he could roast Golovkin? No chance. He gets his head taken off at the top level.

That fella in with Eubank was tough enough for a while but not a match for anyone genuinely world class and even in picking up a title I dont think much new was learned about Eubank personally. Like I said, sometimes quality and a pretty brutal fighter when up close and in the ascendancy. Other times, reckless and wild as F*ck and a KO defeat waiting to happen.

Yo gotta remember Eubank has just moved into the 168lb division, something GGG is reluctant to do. When he grows into the weight he will be a beast. I cant see the likes of degale beating him. Eubank Jr is so much fitter... that blackwell fight was incredible... and is on par with some of the Eubank Snr wars. The kid is way too tough for the other belt holders... who often coast rounds imo.

I'm just not not that impressed by him. Like I said, when on the attack he looks spiteful. When trying to close the distance with them big daft hooks he throws from miles out he looks awfully crude.

Has anyone seen worse stamina in an athlete than David Price?

He needs to find some other way to pay the bills now.

Sad to say because he's a nice enough fella....but Price just isn't up to the job.

He lacks a chin, stamina, and falls apart both mentally and physically when put under pressure. Its definitely time to hang up his gloves.

Yep. It was the first time i have seen a boxer throw a punch miss the target... and hang over the ropes near the turnbuckle as though he was clobbered himself. Almost as if he trained for a 4 round fight.

Heard price isn't very committed.

He probably works hard in camp, but year round is no athlete.

I watched a bit of Eubank and then switched off in mid rounds.

I think he's a dick and lacks power.

I'm sure Price must have put a few quid behind him from his maloney days, not bad given the average opposition throughout his career.


People on here giving Eubank a fair bit of praise, I missed most of it but he got slated on twitter.

Had a lovely link sent to me during the fights.....thank you! my one gave up the ghost!

I think.... no, im positive ive had way better nights watching PubFighter. 1 fight is all i was up 4 Ryder vs Etches, and it didnt let anyone down. Great effort from both lads. Sad to see David Price unable to hold his own hands up or stand up without the aid of something to fall onto. His chin held up. bless him but not his stamina......

It was awful to watch....he probably felt he was going to crush Hammer early doors after whacking him easily in the amateurs. So maybe he hadn't trained correctly. But it doesn't really matter at the end of the day because he's just not very good.

Chin, stamina, mentality, dedication and I absolutely hate to see huge heavyweights with a ton of reach pawing with the jab and allowing much shorter opposition to close the gap so easily.

I don't want to be too harsh but Price is done. I hope he's made enough cash in the fights he's had and if so then he's actually done very well for himself in reality given how flawed he is.

Watched this on the PPV at my son's house (he paid, I didn't!).  I found the whole event very bizarre actually.  Nowhere was there any indication of who the promoter was?  There were sponsor slogans here and there but no actual promoter.  The venue looked woefully small, and not very full for most the time either.  I guess they were relying more on PPV buys than ticket sales?  The ring announcer was marginally more hideous looking than Shrek, certainly no Buffer or Lennon Jr!  He looked like he was wearing a set of top teeth that he got our of a Christmas cracker!
As for the boxing, Ryder -v- Etches was a decent enough scrap and quite enjoyable.  Price was much as I feared it would be and hopefully now he will actually look at alternative ways to pay the bills.  Really nice bloke and I had great hopes for him in the early days, but beyond 3 rounds he's completely fooked.  Hardly surprising at just under 20 Stones?  Eubank did what he needed to do but like so many others on here, he grates on me and I so wish he would ditch trying to be his father, who is a first class prick.  I cannot help myself hoping that he gets beaten just to piss Eubank Snr right off!  It's unlikely that I will ever be able to get properly behind Eubank Jnr to the point of attending a fight, I fear.
Unworthy of PPV, no question about it.  Poor build-up and dreadful ringside analysis, albeit big names in Lennox (yawn every time he opens his mouth), Andre Ward (supercilious tosser who thinks he's Jesus) and Duke McKenzie (not too bad a bloke). All in all, just totally bizarre and poorly thought out.  I seriously hope they didn't make money with this tripe
P.S.  I usually have some time for Richy Woodhall as a commentator and  for his analysis but his scoring in the Etches fight proved beyond doubt that he was on the loony juice last night!

How do you think it compared as a product to the average sky PPV event? At no point whatsoever did it have any feel of a box office show. Yes, it was their first attempt at it for a while but when you're testing the waters for a ppv platform surely you have to come up with more than what ITV served up last night. At least sky's events generally have a bit of pizzazz about them even if the fights aren't always what we would consider ppv worthy.

i only wanted to see the price fight last night, like many i had some sympathy for him after what had gone on, but no more. he hasnt changed anything, he obvously hasnt trained properly at all, so how serious can he be? he has deluded himself with this notion of having been cheated by an old man and that rolly polly turkish guy.

wasnt the story that when he was looking to change trainers post thompson, he didnt want anyone telling him what to do, or help to change his style. true or not i dont know, but it certainly seems that way.

i dont think ive seen anyone, let alone a supposed athlete look so unsteady, awkward and uncomfortable on their feet, and that was from the beginning. fury called him a big stiff idiot. right on all three counts sadly.

Couldn't agree more Gaz, it was dire!  Ok, I started to be impressed when they had Ward and Lennox ringside but the compere asking them the questions was like somebody they dragged off the street.  And poor ole Lennox is no commentator or analyst!  One of his quotes was along the lines of 'Er.......yeah......you know......you went in there and erm........did what you had to do.  Keep on doing that'  Jaysus, what good advice that was to a boxer?  It was just representative of the whole amateurish feel to the show and I'm pretty sure I could've done a better job of the production.  Just dreadful and I certainly cannot imagine who would think of buying into ITV PPV in the future?

His Twitter was full of trolls when he took on Price and he's a biter... he was having these back and forth arguments online acting like Price was still a top contender. When your fighter has to bend over the ropes to catch his breath then maybe it's time to throw in the towel.

Price is conning a living.

Imagine if he'd won, they'd be calling out AJ yet wouldn't go near Chisora, Whyte or even that Northern heavyweight.

Coldwell is on the Sky pay roll as an analyst yet he allows his fighter to turn up in horrific shape.

They've all been having a set to on twitter. Coldwell saying that his fighters employ their own S&C coaches. That may be the case but he's the head trainer so would see first hand that he can't do more than 5 rounds. He has a responsibility to his fighter.

You'd think he'd have his fighters doing 15 round spars....especially when they have stamina issues. Price hardly left first gear yet still gassed. Shocking excuse from Dave.

Post by: lurkyshaka on February 06, 2017, 09:09:22 AM
That excuse really doesn't wash from Coldwell......all well and good saying that the fighters employ their own S&C teams, but as chief boxing coach which at the end of the day is why anybody is there, you have a duty to make sure that the fighter is putting the graft in and his 'S&C team' are up to the job.

Nobody in their right mind can genuinely feel that Price has an actual team/person behind him responsible for his fitness who'd let him turn up like that.

Clearly he'd not trained properly and clearly Coldwell turned a blind eye to it probably hoping that Price would blow the guy out early and no harm done. But once his man didn't fold, then Price was f*cked.

And now in hindsight I recall Coldwell saying a few months back how Price's weight had risen in recent fights by design as he was weakening himself by coming in lighter previously and this played a part in his fragility, etc.

Obviously now that was all bullshit just to cover up the fact that Price wasn't putting the required work in at the gym......though was definitely putting a bit of time in at the chippy!

None of it really matter though....Price initially had ambitions of fighting at the highest level, but he was found wanting. And even if he employed Mackie f'kin Shilstone it wouldn't make any difference in the big scheme of things. He hasn't got the attributes needed and retirement from fighting is his only option.

I think they were maybe thinking along the lines that virtually no Price fight is going beyond about 4 Rounds?  By then either he or his opponent will have been KO'd and nobody much can guess which!  If he attempts to continue in boxing somebody needs to take a close look at his risk factors, otherwise he's a disaster waiting to happen.  Hopefully he will now realise it's the end of the line  -  God knows who you could put him in against to try and rebuild his career?  The jury's no longer out, Pricey, on yer bike fella!   ;)

Once Christian Hammer's drug test comes back as positive, everything will be fine and Pricey can start talking up the AJ fight again  ;)
