I'd rather primetime get all the top fights and charge to watch them on a PPV basis. I mean, how many of us want to have to subscribe to Sky Sports package if you're not interested in watching all the golf and cricket which they also broadcast?

if someone set up a streaming site which offered high quality delayed coverage, i would happily pay 10 for most HBO and Showtime cards.

only problem with streams is you have to stay up until 6am.

Why would anyone buy that when Berto v Quintana is on Sky the same night?

And if that's not your bag, then Friday Night Fights is live on ESPN over here that night-even though it's a saturday.

So that's three live US bills on here at the same time. I wonder which one will have the least viewers

Ahh yes the WBF Belt made famous by Joe Bugner winning it at 48 years old

I'm seriously tempted to give them 6 quid just to boost their numbers and hopefully help to convince them to give us more fights moving forward.

It's 6 pound FFS, 2 pints.

If the Berto bill wasn't on and if I was staying in anyway I'd probably buy it, its only a fiver (6 quid sorry) and any boxing is better than nothing.

Doubt I'd pay 15 though.

If you pay for fights like this it will only encourage them to show more cheap/shit fights not worth watching . If they want to find out what the fans really want to see its not too difficult to do a little market research

I've already bought it

I know it's not important and I know that Holyfield shouldn't be anywhere near a ring but I've been a fan of his for a long time...

$29.90 for this fight in the US! WTF. Anyone worked out the timings for the Berto & ESPN cards this weekend yet? It would be good to watch them both.
