No reason they couldn't just start the fight at 2am get the HBO money and the Sky PPV. Sky still make a crapload for little real outlay.

Where do you get these figures from, Rob?

Exactly. It's been done in the past so I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen again. We're all getting a little too far ahead of ourselves, though. Let's see what happens...

The offer for Khan vs Maidana was 2million in Vegas. the offer for the UK was 750k. So almost 1/4

But yeah, it still might make more sense to have it in the UK. Ticket prices tend to be higher in the US though.
there still prepared to do it. they would have done Haye vs Wlad that way.

Beats the hell out of a fight with Audley. Adamek is a much more credible opponent. My choices of a Haye opponent in order.

Wlad
Vitali
Adamek

BTW - Glad to see you've sorted out the avis Rob. No longer have to block your posts at work

In my opinion he was entertaining at LHW and Cruiser, but he lacks the power to get me going at HW.

Does he have the power to trouble even Haye at HW? I'm not sure.

I suppose the Grant fight was an OK watch, but I found the Arreola fight just a frustrating bore fest and that wasn't Arreola's fault either.

Adamek looked vulnerable at times at cruiser and perhaps even more so now at HW. I should think that Haye can stop him, though I'm not 100% sure he'd outpoint him at HW.

I think Haye could outpoint or more likely KO him. Haye has the absolute perfect style to deal handsomely with Adamek.

Until earlier this year, they showed Klitschko fights on tape delay. Admittedly they were usually tagged on at the start or end of a live card they had, as opposed to a separate show on it's own.

Well, if HBO are willing to pay good money to put it on WCB, they'll want it in America so they can show it live. If their offer is good enough I think it'd be in America.

He says thinking he's been clever then reads about 10 posts saying the same thing. Doh.

yeah money talks I guess, although as I said the Polish drawing card argument for the Prudential Centre is invalid as he could draw big over here too
