Well it doesn't have to be PPV, does it? Or are you saying Hatton vs. Senchenko alone makes this worth PPV money?


The other three bouts make for a perfectly good Sky Saturday (or excellent FFN) card, which is what this ought to still be anyway.

Honestly, I'd forgotten that Primetime is PPV for you lot and not free to air.

Doesn't much matter to me, don't pay a jot either way.

Hatton vs. Senchenko is a meaningless one-off. It doesn't have any impact on the welterweight scene, or really, on either man's career. Both are over the hill. One has been relieved of his paper champ status, and the other has been away too long. As a result of those facts, neither is currently relevant. Shit plus shit equals shit. Two irrelevant boxers competing doesn't suddenly become relevant because one of them used to be top world rated. It's a measly 10 rounder and doesn't mean squat. It doesn't matter how much star power Ricky still has, and on paper it really shouldn't outrank any of the other bouts on the card. (regardless of what hardware is on the line, or whether it ought to be)

It makes boxing look bad to put joke matches up on television as the main event of an otherwise solid card, strictly on the basis of "name value" when the big name has been out of the game for years.
Come on IB, you know better than that. You seem to have some utopian view of the boxing world where only the significance of a matchup should be take into consideration. Boxing does not, and probably never has, worked like that.

It IS all about the star attraction. Doesn't matter in this country that Ricky has been out for more than three years and Senchenko isn't particularly special. Hatton is such a massive star that him making a comeback is bigger news than fights like Burns/Mitchell. Hatton sold more than 10k tickets before an undercard or even an opponent was announced. That's how big a deal this is.

Don't think anything like this besmirches the name of the sport any further, enough shit happens in this sport anyway. If you take the Hatton fight off the card it would get a fraction of the TV audience it will tonight. PPV or not.

That doesn't mean it should be the ****ing main event, if the card also features say Canelo vs. Lara & Mares vs. Moreno II. It should instead be a featured "special attraction" undercard bout - and that's what the Hatton vs. Senchenko circus act should be here. Dig?
it's the way it is for logistical reasons. ricky's name's top on the poster cos he's selling the tickets...ricky's on last cos if you put him on earlier the arena would be empty for the fights on after him.

where a fight is on the card isn't an sporting thing...it's a business thing.

Quigg should take this, then move on to Frampton and get KO'd by the Irish Mike Tyson.

I'm more interested in Quigg/Munroe than Hatton. Hope Rendall gets the win.
