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)

Listen, the main event is worth PPV money alone for **** sake :laugh:

Poeple wanna bitch and moan about Froch v Kessler 2 are off their head or have agendas, first fight was a war and second will be just as good.

You lived in the states, you pay 70 quid to see floyd beat guerrero without breaking a sweat and you complain about froch and kessler 2?

Just because Eddie Hearn wears nice suits and does colorful interviews with Kugan Cassius doesn't mean you should trust him

He's a wolf in sheeps clothing

I just hope he don't read this forum, He'll never let me out the cells if he did and I could kiss my morning cup of tea goodbye, which tbf isn't a great loss seeing as he can't make a decent cup to save his life, his tea making abilities is like his judging, ****ing shit.

This isn't the USA and yes, I am complaining about Froch Kessler being 15 on PPV.
The only reason why PPVs cost so much in the USA is because that's the price the consumer is willing to pay. If they thought people would pay 200 then they wouldn't hesitate to charge that.

The fact that some of us are complaining that Froch v Kessler 2 is even on PPV demonstrates that we stop and think about what we should be paying for our boxing. This show should be on regular Sky Sports and they should be grateful to all those that subscribe.

Isn't that the same with everything though , if I was selling cars for a living and I knew somebody would pay 300,000 for a Ford Fiesta I'd let them pay it
