No,the only replacement I can think of better than the original was Lindell Holmes vs Herol Graham.Would be sick if Id bought a ticket,as Id bet theyre going to be disappointed.I can see that European guy coming in.

Isn't Carson Jones already over here too?... it would be incredibly unfair to him to have him train for months and then fly over here, only to tell him that the fight has been cancelled. Surely they need to find a can for him to knock over at the very least?

It is unfair, but on the other side of the coin when the **** do Americans give a **** about our fighters who have fights pulled last minute?

Gary Sykes springs to mind recently.

Yeah I guess you have a point... I just like watching Carson Jones fight, he has a pretty exciting style

**** me... I convinced 2 mates to part with 150 for the VIP tickets as a bit of a Christmas jolly on the basis that this was a better card than allegedly's. They aren't massive boxing fans so convincing them watching jones v purdy and murray v rees would be better than watching a few names like Burns and Groves they'd heard of took some doing.

Looks like I'll be an unpopular boy on Saturday.

It's not Hearns' fault, this card had the potential to be exceptional, but its probably one I'll watch without any real excitement now. Barker-Hope? Meh.

I probably sound spoilt there, but I can't help but feel the year is petering out domestically.

****s sake! This looked like a great card a month ago, still a few good fights on the card mind.

Ryder/O'Kane is a very good fight, Maxwell/Ochieng should be good also.
