I think its a brilliant idea and i think moving forward any female bouts should be on an all female cards,with female refs,judges and commentary team.

That way i could just avoid it the same way i do with womens football.

I'd never thought of this.
Brilliant idea 💡

It's the best of any scheduled fights in this country.

It could sell well purely for the novelty of all women boxing show. Sky will hype it enough and fill it with the usual rent-a-celeb to get those fist clenching photo-opportunistic celebrity stalkers interested.

I am unsure if it will be a good idea to get the main event promoting their dislike for each other - how embarrassing that was previously would likely turn people away.

It can be expected that at least half the tickets will be giveaways to young girls that will have it looking like a Billie Eilish gig to ensure the arena looks suitably full for TV.
How would 9000 young girls get to The O2.
The same way they got to the Billy Eilish gig there in June I`d guess. Unless it was a trick question?

No. I'd imagine after probably receiving tickets for a birthday present or saving up as a massive fan for the ticket their parents would take them. As a one off. Bit different here. Maybe get them all to Wembley for Joyce a fortnight later as well if they enjoy it.

i doubt most young girls could be arsed to go even with a free ticket, girls dont suddenly give a sh!t about boxing because it's two birds punching each other. even at the female headlined cards the crowds pretty much a sausage fest

I like the main event, and it should be a main event.
It's for a the baubles.
But it isn't PPV, and having female fight after female fight etc is too much for me.
One per card is fine. A main event like this is fine.
But what they are proposing is too much.

Credit to Sky for putting this on normal Sky Sports. I was expecting them to try it on PPV.

2 good competitive fights, Sky will hype the hell out of it and it’ll probably be the most watched women’s fight ever across Sky and ESPN.

Id be surprised if it sells out the O2 but I said the same about MSG and Taylor/Serrano so who knows.

An all women's show is an excellent idea and I hope it stays that way permanently 🤞

Unfortunately, I expect whatever novelty value it might initially attract it will wear off and they will get shoved back into normal shows.

If it does play any role in reducing women boxing on a normal shows then it's a big thumbs up from me :TU:

I can just picture in my head how painful this show is going to be with sky referencing the suffragettes constantly,the theme tune for the adverts will be something along the lines of sisters doing it for themselves or some beyonce knowles “i don’t need no man in ma life am an independent woman”.

Interviews with lilly allen and freshly out of the closet kelly holmes…

WWE tried an all womens PPV which didn't work and never been repeated, Women's football being stuffed down our throats this month but some of the venues struggling to sell even a 1000 tickets and playing at some men's clubs training grounds, women's cricket crowds can be measured on the fingers of one hand so why does boxing think there is a demand for an all women card ?
Might have to get the Romford Bull fighting in drag to shift a few tickets nearer the time

Maybe Mikaela Mayer can come out to the song

‘I’m gonna wash that man right outa my hair’

And Adam Smith can clarify that this isn’t a dig at Johnny Nelson. Who is bald.

I really like the main event, and co main is fun. but making it all womens will make it very very vunerable to a frank or eddie UK card.

Very good :D

The Top Two fights are very appealing and I'm looking fwd to it.
It's just the same old broken record - until it's 3min rounds it's "WOMEN'S Boxing" - make it 3s and suddenly.., it's women boxing.

Apart from a few knuckle-draggers, 90% of us don't give AF if it's women or men as long as the fights are good.

Not going to happen. Whilst it may not appeal to everyone Sky will be pushing this hard for the next 2 months and they can push a fight better than anyone. Sky aren’t vulnerable to anything from BT. Their main star Joyce (with Fury retired now) did c.1,800 tickets on his comeback. Eddie’s not daft and won’t go head-to-head either. Sky have a real desire to push womens sport now and they’ll really go after this.

I might stream it for free because i fancy a bet on Marshall, but aside from that it has zero interest to me. I hope women's fights can be contained to all female cards in the future so i can enjoy boxing cards without them.
