AS things stand, Sky Sports will have two key focuses for their pay-per-view (PPV) platform from September onwards – Anthony Joshua and Tony Bellew.

There are no PPV shows finalised for the rest of the year yet, but when the new season kicks in toward the end of the summer, the two heavyweights are both guaranteed to top separate cards.

Joshua is already a proven PPV commodity, and Bellew maximised his marketability back in March when he stopped David Haye in a high-profile PPV fight. He now has several options; a Haye rematch, or fights with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and WBO king Joseph Parker.
