The fact that a fight such as this is on PPV is outrageous. Id never watch this if you payed me.

Don't knock it lads, it's nice to have the option.

The more options the better.

Exactly, I won't be buying the fight but they have put the option for people to buy it and watch it so whats the problem.

Its all good saying they should have got this card and that card but this was probably very cheap for them to get unlike the Pavlik/Bute card which would cost substantially more.

No need to make a thread discrediting Primetime....just don't buy if you don't want it.

Berto v Quintana and Caballero v Yordon + Rigondondeaux is the same night, why not show a fight somebody actually wants to watch and a fight they can possible make a bit of money off of? Nobody will buy Botha v Evan Fields.

Absolutely right, no point in bashing Primetime who are at least showing intentions of providing boxing some much needed coverage. Would've been nice if they did the Pavlik/Martinez card, but people need to realise the reality of the situation and the business. Its still early days for them and they need to be encouraged as their heart is definitely in the right place.

Not even I would buy this and I buy every PPV. They must have some special deal where they only pay for what they sell or have got it super cheap.
