That's a good read robert, thanks for posting that. Good to read what actually happens in a purse bid.

Gotta love the greedy WBO, getting $2000 in a purse bid 'service fee'.

Just out of interest, how much would the WBO get as a 'sanctioning fee' for a fight like this-and would it be ****** Promotions that pays it?

Great news to come in to after a minging day at work

The o2 must be strong favourite to hold this? Think Upton Park will come in the future (if he wins of course which is far from a given) but it may be a bit too early for that.
