    We need Zroc's input here, especially with him citing Google Trends and Twitter Feeds....

    otherwise, this entire thread has 0 credibility.

    It wasn't a PPV in England, it was on Sky Sports (a premium subscription channel). At least I think that was the case.

    No. You needed to have Sky + order it for around 17 quid. So yeah, it was a PPV but a much cheaper one that what Mayweather sells.
