So far I've spent

Tickets - 120 x 2
Hotel - 108
Train - 85 Return x 2
Thames Clipper - 19 x 2

When I get there, underground, food, booze on top....

I am not disapointed in the slightest.

I agree the undercard is weak.

If people bought tickets on the strength of one fight then this will be a learning curve for them because people were skeptical about the quality of the support bouts when it was announced that it would be same day as champions league final.

I'm still not convinced that the champions league will increase the buy-rate substantially but there is no con here in regards to ppv.

It needed one more 50-50 fight, didn't even have to be above British level.

Why would you pay 15 when its quality if you can also watch it for free?
Well thanks for your opinion Rob but I will watch it for free, I don't mind paying to watch boxing if its worth it and would rather watch it on my tv than laptop but at the same time I don't like paying out for something that's shit.

I want to watch the fight and will do how I choose.

He doesn't have the budget to have a good undercard. Kessler and Froch are making shit loads.

your easily pleased

ha no o be fair I'm not disapointed i can't wait I'd have gone if it was just Froch v Kessler, it just gets on my nerves the thought that Hearn and Sky are more bothered about the casual football fan type than proper boxing/ Froch fans.

After all I was going to watch Froch long before he was on the scene or Sky were bothered with him (makes me laugh they keep mentioning how great the first fight was, well it wasn't great enough for them to pick it up was it!)

while i agree hearn has dropped the ball on this PPV I don't think anybody is in a position to accuse Matchroom of conning them.

You could quite easily sell your tickets at a profit.

Don't try to be smart Rob, Its not worth 15 to pay out, simple as a ppv product that you have to pay money for, its a shit package, its not that hard to work out surely ?

Nobody here said Froch V Kessler is shit. It's the 15 for an otherwise shit card that is the problem.

I have tried to go into pubs and only have a pint before and have failed horribly every time, I don't like watching boxing in pubs, too expensive and there's always a loud mouth prick that ends up giving me the hump, I like the comfort of my own home so I can really get into a fight.

But then you're relying on the opinions of British Bill.
