Nah man complain, he can only say no. 114 each is a lot of money in my book.

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.
That is piss poor that mind

I'm sorry to hear that. I had a 75 (+10 in booking fees and postage) pitchside ticket and would have happily watched the fight from my seat had there been adequate stewards to prevent people in front standing on their seats. I ended up watching it from the aisle instead and like you I missed the first round.

I got my son some great seats for 75 in the east stand block 4 row J, he was ecstatic, him & his greenhorn mates got the train up from southampton & no doubt were well glagged up when they hit the tube & jumped on the wrong one & ended up near Heathrow ****in idiots did'nt know the diff from east & west

I'am proberbly to blame as seeing it was their 1st trip too london i warned then to run onto the tube just in case the turkish homo gangs or the homeless cannibals that live in the tunnels spotted them

So long as you are polite and logically explain your situation constructively then you might score some tickets to a future fight. So long as you have proof of purchase.

Yeah, because of a small happening called the olympics, you might have heard of it. Pointless putting any shows bigger than a small hall on during that period really

So what if the olympics are on boxing does exist outside of the Uk.

In August/July boxnation are showing Broner v Escoba, Guerro v Aydin, Groves v Sierra, Stieglitz v Abraham, Cloud v Pascal.

So Sky have no excuse they have spunked all their money on F1 and nothing left in the pot for boxing.

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 agree with everything in your post but i do have friends who are massive boxing fans who boycoted the fight and didnt watch it. On the grounds that it was bad for boxing and that it didnt help its cause. A fact that is hard to argue against.
I watched it though.
