that pretty impresive. If he had got a Rees defense on the card, Macca vs Cunningham Unification, Pryce and Locket fighting and Skelton fighting a top 15 H/W he would of got the record.

Seems alot but its really not.

i reckon 55,000 now max!

Obiovusly Enzo's fight on the undercard has sparked a mad scramble for tickets.

I don't think ****** would like handing Witter his WBA belt and I don't think Witter would like the idea that he'd be earning Frank ****** money .

None the less it's a fight i'd like to see , I actually think Rees workrate could give Witter problems...........well for a few rounds anyway .

Considering he expected 65,000 a number of months ago, 45-50,000 is significantly lower.

If he had of had a decent undercard then I think he would have been able to get nearer his original plan. I imagine a lot of people who are going to Vegas in December have steered clear from this because the value for money once you've added in hotels/food/transport/tickets do not make it value for money and this money can be spent in Vegas.

Two Brits with titles in the same division should mean automatic unification.

FW clearly wants to keep Rees inactive until Khan is ready to fight him.

But as with Woodhall and Calzaghe it doesn't(at least when ****** is involved) .

Surely Rees has to fight Kotelnik before the end of the year or he'll be stripped , the winner of M'Baye v Rees(which took place on the 21st of July) was meant to defend within 90 days so Rees should have been defending his title against Kotelnik next weekend .
