Default Confess your PPV sins here...

Let us come together as a congregation and confess our Pay Per View sins over the past few years. Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone! Those who purchased today's PPV disgrace, hang your heads in shame. You were given prior warning and have still refused to listen to common sense! However, you are not alone. I would like to confess purchasing the following sins, off the top of my head...

Tyson NC1 Orlin Norris. 1999.

First full time job and definitely had more money than sense. Saved somewhat by the arse whipping Chico Corrales put on Roberto Garcia on the under card.

Tyson NC3 Golota 2000.

It looks like I just couldn't get enough "No Contest" action around this point in time. I knew something ****ing stupid would happen in this fight, and it did when Golota just walked out of the ring at the end of the 3rd. Later changed to a NC due to Tyson testing positive to dope. Under card was horse shit. Judah beat someone...

Lennox Lewis KO2 Michael Grant. 2000

I fell for the hype on this one. Grant was completely unproven at this level, although many scribes were calling him the next champion. Lewis dismantled him from the get go. Paul Ingle beat Junior Jones in a good fight. Top little stoush on the under card that wasn't shown was Scott Harrison beating Tracey Patterson.

Mundine v Zohs. 2000.

Right this is getting bad... real bad. Clearly earning a little bit of coin had gone to my head, spending $29.95 (early bird booking - remember those? Just another way Main Event have ****ed us recently, taking them away) on this steaming pile of horse shit.

Again it was the hype. Can he fight? Turns out he can, but the card doesn't look PPV. It didn't then, it doesn't now.

Mundine v Taumafai 2000.

Surely he won't be Taumafai I thought. He was a good boxer a few years back. Turns out he did. It also turns out that Haumono's people needed to start looking a bit further than the local Ippy Rugby League comp for opponents after Paul Srama (who everyone said can't fight on the field, let alone the ring) almost got decapitated.


NOW.... CONFESS YOUR SINS!!!!!!!

I've only ever bought two PPV's, the rest I've been a cheap skate or downloaded them.

I went halves with a mate in the Kessler/Beyer fight (think I paid $10 max), and then went in a 3 way share for the Mayweather/DelaHoya fight.

Anyone who bought Klitschko v Rahman for starters!!!

I've just realised that 2000 was an abysmal year for me. I also purchased Tyson v Julius Francis. I was also forced to endure Calzaghe v David Starie... Joe hurt his hands and by god it was dull!!

I will confirm that both Kagsy and I bought Klitschko-Rahman. Add in the 5-6am start time in WA and the fact that a certain local heavyweight drove over at that hour to watch it, if was probably the worst I've done.

Also Jones Jr-Trinidad, sucked in by the hype.

Did buy one Mundine fight, fortunately time has dulled the pain, all I remember is it went the distance (surprise!).

Probably working away on a 8/6 roster for years saved me from some really bad buys.

I'm not sure if I had a defining moment where I decided I wouldn't buy a PPV. Clearly I've made some rash purchases in my youth . I know I wasn't going near Jones v Tito with a barge pole either.

Leon ,
Working nights has saved my sorry arse from the option of PPV's but many a Sunday morning iv'e found myself huddled around a radio listening , i was brought up though getting up early hours on a Sunday listening to the fights coming from the states so really enjoy that as an option .

Can't wait until my Mr's gives me her cast off I Phone in June when she gets an upgrade so hopefully i willl be able to read the RBR off ESB live if it ain't on Brit radio .

Ipp's i remember the Starie fight almost as well as i remember me and my mate going ton up for near three hours in an attempt to catch the Evan's Ashire fight .

What was i thinking .

Hate to admit it.. The last buy was Holyfield vs Tyson II.. Tyson was already a mental misfit.. Everyfight from then went hay wire for any particular reason regarding his fights.
