Hyder stopped having FOX dates up on the Central Coast twice a year, instead having Green PPV fights as his only promotions.
tbh the fox cards are more trouble than they are worth, the pay is very little considering overheads and the time spent in getting it put together. The only reason fenech made money from it is because of sponsors, but even then he eventually sold his slots to guys like Hyder for around 10k

I kinda feel sorry for Thomson but then i dont because i think about how he ran the League into the ground after Canavan passed away. What goes around comes around i guess.
