    Default Live on ITV!!! World Super Series - Eubank Jr/Groves/C.Smith/Usyk/Briedis/Gassiev etc

    ITV to show the entire comp across their various platforms (which obviously means some will be PPV).

    Eight weeks in a row starting Saturday.

    Callum Smith-Erik Skoglund live on ITV4 on the 16th.

    They haven't listed all yet (including Usyk-Huck this weekend) but it's safe to assume Eubank Jr will continue to be PPV. Groves-Cox? They might have a go with that too.

    Fantastic to get the cruiserweight killers all screened though and the tournament all on one platform.

    So they have got it ahead of Sky then?
    That's a bit of a shocker

    with a competition like this how would people feel about PPV for the whole tournament?

    would people be willing to pay something like £30/£40 to get the entire tournament rather than paying £10/£15 for the fights they decide are PPV worthy?

    No fuck PPV and subscriptions!

    Not even Master - the worlds biggest miserable cheapskate ponce - can moan about this (he still will as Eddie has fighters in it). No BoxNation or Sky subs, great matches all on the freemans. Excellent.

    If Eubank or the odd Brit matchup/later rounds are PPV, fine. None of the cruisers will be PPV.

    Yeah but for example if they make the following fights PPV :

    quater finals
    Groves v Cox
    Jr v Yildirim

    semi finals
    Jr v Groves

    final
    Jr/Groves v Smith

    at £15 a fight then that comes to £60, how about the option of £30 before the tournament starts to guarantee you get all of the fights for that price regardless of who is on the PPV

    The cruiserweight tournament is very interesting
    The super-middleweight tournament isn't as good
    But still it should be fun however I still remember the Super Six
    Which was filled with delays and fighters pulling out.

    I will take it, at least it is on mainstream TV and the groves v Eubank is worthy of PPV by todays standards.

    Better this than put it on you tube and charge.

    Yeah that's a good idea if you'd prefer that sort of thing, however, you're assuming those fights take place. What if Jr, Groves or Smith lose? These aren't "gimme" mismatches.

    Regardless.. I think it's terrific that we get a couple of months of consecutive world-class Saturday night boxing without being on subscription platforms. Reason? We still get the SKY/Matchroom and Warren/BN content. The only moan i've got is the fights will clash.

    ITV getting this couldn't have worked out better.

    They should have ensured that it was going to be a Groves v Junior finals they are the biggest names.

    Jesus.. that is some fucked up logic.

    They should fix it so the biggest names don't have to earn the right to win?

    C.Smith, Cox, Yildirim and Brant - four young totally unexposed unbeaten fighters, boring, I don't know them so they shouldn't get a chance. Deary, deary me

    Its full on FA Cup logic

    I remember when Robbie Savage was doing the FA Cup draw, now I know that the geeza is a monumental prick but before pulling the balls out he said something along the lines of ''everyone wants to see Man Utd v Chelsea in the quarter finals but we all know that Sky won't allow it'' I think he was forced to apologise and reiterate that the draw is completely random.

    I am not asking it to be fixed but that the best fighters be seeded like in Tennis.
