Remember the Hoppa vMcCall fight.... It was $9.95 on an Internet stream.....I don't think I have seen another like it...I guess it didn't work

Put it this way, I would actually like to see it as I don't mind SBW, but there is no way in hell I'd pay $40 for it.

As you asked someone else earlier, would I pay $10 to see it?
Perhaps........ Maybe.....

$5.... Yes.

So regardless of whether I have the choice or not, the bottom line is, it simply isn't worth the asking price, and that makes it bad for boxing - charging an amount of money for something which isn't worth it.

I'm just getting jack of this whole shit.
I watched UFC 125 on Fuel the other night, free that is.

I pay $125 a month for Austar, & 60% of the channels I've got, I don't want, but I have to have.
Then they put the arm on me for $40-$50 to watch a local fight, that, like them useless channels, it's got a useless headliner.

No wonder us oldies fade away from the game & take our offspring with us.
The stupidity of it all is mind boggling.

This is what I cant understand about peoples thoughts regarding BOXA stuffing up the game.....if the sport is ever going to get back on FTA we need the cross over viewers to build enough numbers to flick the FTA switch.

Just like you say the networks dont see boxing as a main stream sport so BOXA and any other promoter are just trying to do whatever they can to make a buck.

Now before you go over old ground I dont like the tickets payment on BOXA cards and that they dont sink some good cash to make a great UC.
Boxing will only ever return to FTA tv if a TV network sees the potential $$$ in it. For that to occur there has to be a groundwell of interest in boxing that the TV network can tap into and turn into ratings.

...and for that to happen there has to be quality, in demand boxing product out there. Not the crappy cards with main event mismatches, so typical of BOXA.

Actually the pre-lim fights for UFC125 were for free on fuel mate, not the main events. They do that so people switch over to main event channel and buy the PPV after getting a little taste of the pre-lims

So sox you are saying this card is good for boxing it is just that it being PPV is making it bad, I think that is a bit different to 90% on here who are saying that the card with SBW headlining is bad for boxing and they wouldn't watch it even if it was on Fox, with your view i agree the less PPV fights the better more fights on Fox and 1 is what is needed

Exactly mate. Showing the UC free (Well pay TV free) is a good promotional vehicle.
Mind you, I just had a look at the SBW UC,,,crikey, they're kidding,
Baff V Mumtaz & Pittmamn V TBA. That's an undercard????

I suspect that the penny may have dropped with these "tickets for a purse" rorts. Fighters/trainers are wising up.

With Baff vs his usual bum of an opponent in the undersize Mumtaz...WHOA the undercard is firing on all cylinders.
I predict the rest of the undercard
Peter Mitrevski vs Bum
Peter Kazzi vs Bum
Fred Nagi vs Bum

Hell no!
It's a bad card no matter what angle is used, however it could be excused if it was on FTA or Fox sports. There are heaps of bad cards.

It's inexcusable as a PPV, particularly for $40.

Oh well, that's their opinion.
I have no problem with SBW, he has to start somewhere.
The issue I have is it being sold for too much money, as a consequence less people get to see it.

Yep.

I have seen half a dozen fighters at press conferences hounding khoder to get on his undercards and happy to sell tickets for the privliage it might not be right but will be a while before it stops as there are a lot of fighters who want to be on choc undercards no matter what

BOXA Promotions - "Pioneers Of Shithouse Matchmaking"

Next we will probably have midgets on the undercard too.
