My understanding that he was not fighting on the card.

Booth and Haye held Rhodes in such low esteem they refused to offer him trade gimmes such as

hotel room,
food allowance
10 tickets for family and friends

What has Rhodes said on the subject or is he keeping his head down. Hayemaker seemed to kill Rhodes career at one point.

50k seems a popular amount of money in domestic boxing at the moment.

I hope it isn't ANOTHER shit undercard. Other than Haye winning the title vs Valuev that fight card was a sham. Shit fighters, shit performances and it all hinged on the main event which was an anti climax other than the fact he won.

Pfft, that was nothing compared to the Froch v Dirrell undercard. It looked bad on paper, and on canvas it was even worse. Not even the main event saved that, awful that it was. It didn't finish till 4am either. Admittedly I've not been to loads of boxing shows, but I reckon I'll struggle to see a worse one on such a big show.

I've a bad feeling Haye v Ruiz will be as bad, with George Groves the only realistic rumoured fight about. And no, Katsidis or Guzman are NOT realistically going to happen on this show.
