Boxing fans were outraged at Sky Box Office showing adverts and featuring 2-71 boxer MJ Hall on the Khan vs Brooke undercard. Fans inside the Manchester Arena were treated to Olympic hero Fraser Clarke winning a first-round knockout in his first professional fight.
But he and the viewers across the country also had to endure the hall fight with Hasan Azim.
The ultra-lightweight clash was settled by unanimous decision in Azim’s favor at the end of four rounds but it left many question marks over the choice of hall on Sky Box Office.

Incredibly, the Brit has now lost 71 fights in his professional career with some on Twitter suggesting he looks like he’s won the competition to be there.
One boxing fan wrote: “MJ Hall. On the box office undercard. With a record of 2-70. Didn’t even try to block. Looks like he’s won the desire contest.”
Another added: “How is this MJ Hall fighting on a PPV card, my god is as bad as me!!”
And a third said: “MJ Hall looks like he’s won the Facebook contest with a chance to fight on the Khan Brock undercard.”
But Hall’s selection wasn’t the only reason fans were angry.
The decision to include adverts in the show also attracted anger, particularly as viewers paid £19.95 for the privilege of watching the event.
One fan wrote: “Can’t believe how Sky Sports can justify charging £19.95 for #KhanBrook and still put adverts between rounds. Sad, no wonder the platform is dead. Is.”
Another added: “£20 for Sky Sports box office and they still have the bloody nerve to play the adverts!!!”
A third said: “The fight is on Sky Box Office and it still has loads of adverts.”
