On the subject of these do's they are only a rip off if you allow them to be. I have done 2 , Duran and Frazier and we had a great night both times. We had photo's with the fighters plus a few ex fighters turned up and mingled with everyone.
Anyone who's mad enough to bid for 'official merchandise' deserves to be ripped off. I know a guy who makes a living out of these events and he buys most of the gear he auctions on e-bay for **** all and then flogs it to pissed up wanna bee's at these events and makes a killing.
holding those auctions when it ISNT for charity is pretty shit. but fair play, if people are mad enough to bid...

He obviously wanted to be in Gary's gang, it's the only reason he could have that shocking beard of his.

I think having money to burn helps as well. I have bits and bobs of boxing memoriabilia (sp) but even the reserves on those auctions are usually above what I'm will to to pay.

aye but having a bidding war over something you could get for a fraction of the price on ebay seems a bit stupid, but if its in aid of charity then it makes sense.
