I rang BoxNation and told them as I was paranoid they would charge me and the muppet on the phone just said "Oh ok we will turn it off" and they didn't.

In my opinion watching an illegal stream is more morally justifiable than giving money to Frank.
The thread could get very dark listing things more morally justifiable than giving money to him.

Pains me to do it but i cant really moan after the last 8 weeks.

Do you have split personality? Is that why you have 10 different logins that you post from?

I think Sky Sports subscribers have a right to feel aggrieved as these are the kind of cards people pay the subscription for.

The tickets you'd get for 200 on those sites are in the nosebleeds. It wouldn't be worth going, especially for that kind of money. I was lucky enough to get an 80 ticket after camping the 02 site for 2 hours. Besides, all those tickets are from touts, **** them.

Can't believe people are whinging about 15 for a guaranteed good fight that will probably go the full 12. Both fighters deserve the money, it may well be the last fight for either or even both of them.

They're probably bullshit tickets that get mysteriously lost in the post. Ringside tickets were something like 500 at source, no way they're genuine.

Interesting. Wouldn't stubhub refund you or something though? Can't be that easy for scammers.

No idea, but the terms of conditions on my E-ticket state that the ticket gets scanned and it's first come first served. I could print off a hundred of them and sell them, but only the first person gets in. 300 is way too low for a touted ringside ticket.

Both parties can be catered for on a boxing card, especially a ppv one
exactly my original point wasnt that i'm unhappy he caters for the casual fan just that I'm unhappy doing so seems to take precedence over hardcore boxing fans

anyway on a lighter note Callum Smith and Martin J Ward added yesterday aleast its adding a bit of depth to the undercard.

**** it I'm gonna forget the politics and allow myself to get excited, after all I was going to watch Froch fight before Hearn and Sky were even bothered so they aint ruining this for me

WAR FROCH

its not i just saw that its 295 (or something similar) looks like ringside they way stub hub set out their seating plan but its actually just a floor sea (probably right at the back of floor for that price) the rest at ringside are going for about 600-1000, upper tier tickets are going for about 120 plus (double face value)
