Amir Khan at the moment, but if Haye fought in the US he would be huge, but cant see that happening unless he and Vitali fought in Vegas.

 

Froch can sell 10k+, Super six finalist 20k

 

Haye can sell 20k+, beating a Klitschko sell out Wembley

 

Khan can sell 30k+, Fighting Mayweather sells out Wembley

I reckon Froch>Khan>Haye

 

Froch sells out Nottingham the same way Hatton sold out Manchester, and Khan must do fairly sizeable business to be snapped up for PPV by Sky. Haye has yet to really establish himself as a massive seller I think, but I could be wrong.

all 3 about the same just now, khan and froch have there football teams following to help them fill out stadiums , were as haye has the knock out power to get fans interested in his fights. i think ricky burns in a year or 2 if he keeps hold of his belt could have a potential massive following as scotland waited so long for another belt holder. trying to think if we've missed anyone out of the list

I can't see much sense here. Haye v Klit would be 60k in Germany in a football stadium, Khans last fight has 5k in the little arena at msg, Mayweather hasn't ever done 30k venues..., Kevin Mitchell did 20 something against Katsidis...

Murray and Cleverly have supporters and in a few years or sooner could be up there. But this is based on the men at the top now.

 

Murray would sell it out no doubt, his following in Manchester is huge

 

No doubt but does he have TV viewing figures like the others right now?

 

i agree but isn't the question asking who has the biggest fanbase not who is the biggest PPV attraction?

how do both Khan and Haye sell out Wembley but Khan somehow sells 10,000 more?

 

are people goin to sit on the roof or something?

 

and noway does Khan-Mayweather sell more tickets than Haye-Klitschko

 

Haye-Klitschko is a much, much bigger fight than Floyd-Khan, and more people would pay to see Haye than Khan anyway

My original post which isn't long included.

 

Which one has the biggest fanbase both television wise and ticket sales?

They wouldnt hold them at wembley, Floyd wouldnt fight outside the US casinos and Klits sell more in Europe that haye could ever manage in the UK

i agree but it confuses me how he says both would sell Wembley out but somehow Khan would sell 10,000 more tickets

 

and sorry Rob missed that

 

then no doubt the other 3 are bigger PPV attractions but to be honest i think in terms of fanbase and following Murray is up there with Froch and Haye, and bigger than Khan's, that will be proven when he steps up to world level

I genuinely do Think it'll do 1,000,000 in the UK...especially if sold along side the other big fight that night...do we Thibk Khon could will get that number any time soon?...

 

No...

 

like it or not, Haye-Harrison is a much bigger draw to the UK as a whole than any Khan fight
