Dont know why Primetime gets so much hate. I like the fact that you can pay for the fights you want to watch rather then having to subscribe.

Yeah, I dont get it either.
Primetime aren't stealing fights from other channels and making us pay for them, they are actually providing access to fights that no one else is broadcasting.
And if you dont want to watch, dont buy.

If it wasn't for primetime, Froch fights and the rest of the Super Six just wouldn't be available live on our TVs.

And 5.95 for a Holyfield-Botha fight is nothing to get upset about. Judging from most of the comments no one here would watch it anyway, even for free, so why they complaining ?

The problem is though if they dont make much from it they might be reluctant to put on a better card in the future. I just hope they have someone in their research dept who knows what kind of fight will attract customers

on general they were saying that the ppv cost for Jones vs Hopkins was $50! which is crazy. i'm not gonna watch Evander but he cant be any worse then Hopkins and jones and for its a fraction of the cost 5.95

The ReallyOldDeal vs Mayorga's cousin is one of the matchups so bad that I try to ignore it and hope it disappears like I'm one of the 'ghetto boys' in the 'my mind playing tricks on me' video. They need to strip Evanders license because he aint gonna stop fighting until his child support magically stops or all his kids turn 18. I choose to remember his cruiser days, wars with Lennox and Riddick and the Tyson beatdown...Damn Evander, what a way to go out, out like a sucker..sad

Yeah, but in truth he beat Valuev in his last fight.
And look how Valuev is still be regarded as an opponent for the title-holders (Vitali and Haye).
Look at the hype Haye is getting for beating Valuev and Ruiz !
