Default Well done Boxnation and FW

I thought last night was absolutely superb.

Everything about it was why I love boxing. A heavyweight stadium fight where both came to bring it, a magnificent atmosphere.

Buffer doing the intro's...with his "London, England ARE YOU READY!"

Not ashamed to say, I got goosebumps, it reminded me of Bruno at Wembley stadium. The rain seemed to even add to the occasion.

The BBBofC need to watch that fight and the event and realise the fans got what they wanted.

So *****y if you are reading this, thank you for a top night and everyone at Boxnation. I personally thought it was far better and far more real than Sky's coverage as well.

I thought they put on a good show, with good build-up, so yes, "well done" to BoxNation.

They should have had a better undercard and maybe 5 hours of live boxing for a show that big, but to be fair, they did have the BBBofC working against them.

Really, it's just good to see that the BBBofC, the EBU, and the ever-present risk of training injuries, couldn't stop this fight from taking place.

I paid about 230 for 2 ticket on the pitch. When the fight was about to start everyone on the pitch left their seats and crowded round the ring. Alot of people were standing on the chairs and my mrs couldn't see a thing. There were no (or very few) stewards on the pitch at all. There were some patroling where the ring walk happened and ringside but none on the rest of the pitch. It was a good atmosphere but we pretty much missed the anouncements and first round altogether. we had to fight our way to the side so she could get a view by leaning over the barrier. Am a bit pissed off about it to be honest. Ive been to fights before and i know it can get a bit wild but i reckon they could have sorted a few more stewards/security on the pitch to atleast get the ****ers to get down from standing on their chairs, half the people there had slipped passed the few stewards round the edge (having paid alot less) and probably got a better view than my mrs and me.

some really good positives and only one negative (the undercard was well below par imo) however that doesnt detract from overall great nights entertainment which run smoothly and had a good mix of guests i was pleased to c cleverly and price there and whilst they arent naturals in front of the camera i enjoyed there input as i did buncey as well, i reckon the fight and the way it was pressented may lead to boxnation keeping a fair few first time subscribers may keep their subscription for a few months so lets hope fw continues to give us nights like last night even he must see that giv the public what they want and they will pay him well for doin so

Sorry to hear that mate, I do think that comes with the territory a bit with stadium fights though, hope you still had a good night

Undercard was below par, but understandable with the BBBofC etc.

I really enjoyed Clev and Pricey, I'm finding I much prefer boxnations coverage than Sky's now

Well done..

I have been subscribing for 2 months, and i was unaware of this.

I will be watching Steve Bunce Boxing hour from now on live, instead of waiting for somebody to put it on youtube.

Boxnation has been a life saver, seeing fights from all over the world live and in decent quality.

Iv'e recently binned Sky as their boxing output is down to 20 fights a year with about six of them likely to be that shite prizefighter.

Just checked Sky have no live boxing until middle of September, piss poor.

Long live Boxnation.

Yeah it was a brilliant event. The only down side was a poor ish undercard, although saying that i quite like Liam Walsh so was glad to watch him in action.

Say what you want about FW and it seems a few on here dont like him but he does put on a good show.

Roll on Burns Mitchell

That sounds messed up. I'd have been well pissed off. How much did you pay for tickets?
