But PBF does back up a lot in fights, so i woulnt be surprised if Topdog gets his **** on every now and again.

Right.

$64.95 is not a bargain, by anyone's definition.

Its an overpriced ripoff, but only if you pay it.


I laugh at a fight being that high. Laugh. This is the highest I've EVER heard of a fight costing.

Crazy.

Not only is the outcome clear as mud; neither fighter is terribly exciting in their own right. Their styles could somehow miraculously mesh well and make for an engaging pace, but it's a big if and not worth regular PPV money, let alone premium prices.

I'm almost anticipating one of the undercard fights (Cherry-Ferguson II) to outshine this. And it's not a fantastic undercard.

I haven't ordered a PPV in a good while, they are all rip offs, unless they are actually a phenominal card. In the case of Floyd-Hatton, it's an absolute mismatch with a shitty undercard, forget it.

Reducing PPV prices down to 19.99 would do a lot for the sport.

Cotto-Mosely and Vargas-Mayorga were betting toss ups, I mean, I had a good feeling who was going to win both and it just so happened that they did, but the fights were destined to have many outcomes depending on what went on.

Hatton-Floyd is Hatton getting thrashed and stopped, not quite as bad as Gatti, but somewhere there, a total and complete mismatch and not worth anything more than a WCB card.

And we can blame the flawed P4P rankings that we so detest for Hatton being so well regarded when he's very good, but not elite and no challenge for a real elite fighter in their prime.

Anyone smart enough not to pay the PPV ransom and give way $65 for a boring old Peanut Butter Floyd fight. Should be smart enough to invest that $65-$100 to rip off the providers and get free wide open tv !!!

It's not on HBO. You're seeing MAYWEATHER/HATTON 24/7, not the PPV fight.

This is United States, Time Warner, Los Angeles.

Great, if you have money to burn send me $64.95 but please don't act like this is a good deal when live seats are cheaper.
