Can I ask you a serious question....

What do you actually get out of making shit threads like these?

Wouldn't be so bad if you actually switched it up once in a while, but nearly everything is TV related.

Bute only draws in Quebec as a PPV entity.Elsewhere in Canada he is basically unknown and his results are not even posted in the Toronto papers.
Not being from the UK,my question is -is Froch a big name and a PPV attraction in the UK,or just a local star in Nottingham?Seems to me both are only local draws.

Boo-****in-hoo. French speaking Romanian doesn't draw outside Quebec. No shit Sherlock.

If 'local draw' entails an entire province, sure, he is. Peeps from QC will be able to go to a CAS pub and watch that shit live for free.

He's still a much bigger draw than Ward & Dirrell.


As for Froch, he's regularly appearing on Sky so my guess is that they can crank the hype for this fight enough for it to attempt the PPV route.

Froch isnt just a "local star", but hes certainly not gonna pull ina huge amount of PPV buys.
