Default Pacman v JMM on Primetime!!!

Ridiculous, annoying and now pathetic.

How can Primetime expect people to spend 30 on two fights? First the Hatton fight and now Pacman v JMM and only 2 weeks a part. Boxnation should of picked this fight up!!!

I agree with you about Boxnation being a bit of a disappointment in not picking up at least one of those cards.

But its not really 30 for just two fights is it.

Its thirty pounds for about ten hours of live boxing, featuring about ten fights.

Even so with christmas coming up and people already struggling financially 30 is alot of money.

I do agree mate, I'm not defending the expense at all.

I just don't think it is Primetimes fault, the two promotions are independent and they just happen to be this close together.

The best solution would have been for the Hatton card to be on another channel and for it to not cost extra.

Who's fault is that?!

They should offer a loyalty discount to those who buy the Hatton fight. Get the PAC v JMM fight half price or summink

I don't have an issue with PPV as long as its the right quality of card and I think both of these are.

I only take issue with PPV when you don't get shit undercards and shit main events. I would spend 5x that on a night out so all in all your better off.

It's about the average, assuming I'm out all night.

Taxis, some grub at 3am, probably being short changed a couple of times and booze for the night would see me typically spend 60-80.

no never been a smoker.

my dad always told me never to be cheap. never complain about the cost of something. think it it your head, but never say it out loud.

allot of my mates are the same. maybe thats a london thing. the sterotype is that northeners are cheap. but then Beeston is from yorkshire and hes not tight.
