Pac-Marquez is a great fight so I may be tempted to get it, it's only the time that is a sticking point for me.
The main event could be good but if marquez is as sluggish as he was last time at WW theres a good chance that it will be a blow out. The undercard is average at best and primetime PPV is just terrible. I've decided the risk is not worth 15 for a fight at 5am.

Please excuse my ignorance, but is this at the full welterweight limit?I thought it was at a catchweight of about 143 or something.

You vote with your pocket and make it clear PPV flops they simply won't offer it.
i havent bought a PPV in years, basically as none have been worth 15 other than Klit-Haye but i just went to the pub for that.

I din't mind subscribing to SS as the last few years they have had a domestic fight every week as well as putting most of the big American fights on for free with a few Prizefighters in the middle. Now they have lost most of the American fights and only offer a few domestic cards , half of which i can take or leave, i can't justify paying for them.

Which leaves me with box-nation which so far has been good, if it continues to improve ill happily find a tenner a month.

I think it might be but it makes little difference unless Marquez comes in light, last time he put on too much muscle and he didn't look good at all. I don't think the result was affected much but i felt his performance was heavily affected by the weight gain.

It's safe to say, I won't be paying and I urge every other poster on this Forum to do the same, It's a blatant rip off of genuine boxing fan's and enough is enough.

Do Primetime seriously think they're gonna' be able to charge 15 for a fight with no English fighter's, at 5 in the morning? I don't care if it's Pacquiao or not it'll flop
You already forgot about Mayweather v Merchant?

Yes, they do think that. Apparently it works for them (Floyd-Ortiz). Do you think they would have taken this if Floyd-Ortiz flopped?
