They probably have their reasons for not getting hold of this, but really, it's a bit of a ****-up. Donaire-Nishioka itself is a great fight, and you can see from a mile away that Rios-Alvarado is gonna' be a potential fight of the year candidate. More of an effort should have been made to snap this up.

I am going be pretty ****ed off if boxnation does not pick this up. Exactly the sort of card boxnation should be getting imo.

Well yes, but:

(a) BoxNation have had trouble recently getting Top Rank cards
(b) Primetime would have the Channel 5 show on earlier to help promote it

We will see.

If your wifes property firm was 3million in the red and your channel had 1/3 of the subscribers it needed to break even......you will struggle to buy major world title fights.

You're saying this is the case for BoxNation?

I'm sorry that I don't have any made up figures myself, but I'm pretty confident in saying that BoxNation is not struggling as much as Rob says...
