Default Carl Froch vs. Mikkel Kessler II RBR

Top of the hour.

HBO broadcast (main event only) @ 6pm EST.


IB's RBR disclaimer:

DO NOT ASK FOR LINKS! Do not hint for them. Do not ask "what channel?". Do not make any post that could be interpreted as insinuating a link request, even if it sounds innocent (ie stuff like "Gee, I don't have a way to watch this" or "if only this was televised where I live...")

All that stuff will a) get you banned and b) clutter up my thread with quickly deleted posts. The folks at ESB do not want to get sued and therefore have adopted a VERY strict policy of zero-tolerance on stream requests to cover their butts. The moderators DO enforce this policy. The moderators are doing what they're supposed to be doing and should only take action if you are breaking rules. Please don't clutter up my threads with posts that are going to get deleted and muck up each page. It's unseemly and disrupts everyone else's enjoyment.

Thank you.

PS. My only other rule in these threads is that, as a matter of courtesy, you refrain from posting spoilers if you are aware of undercard results that most people are going to see televised on delay. Also, if there are two events going on at once keep all discussion of the other card in its own thread, and don't cross-contaminate with spoilers between the two. Thanks.

Heard Froch got knocked out in sparring. This won't go well.

The undercard starts at the current top of the hour (which means the next fresh rollover of the clock, so with the OP being at 2:05pm EST the next "top of the hour" isn't until 3pm EST; where "bottom of the hour" would've meant 2:30pm EST )

The main event is at 6pm EST on HBO. They are not showing undercards.

My vbets are all against the Matchroom fighters. I think Froch is very slight fav over Kessler but 2/1 seems too long imo. Looking forward to a good night of action!

Uh, no. HBO doesn't go on until 6pm (EST).

If you meant 3pm Pacific (which isn't usually thought of as the default USA timezone, so you need to specify) then yes HBO live with Froch vs. Kessler ring walks minutes later.

Has there ever been one RBR in which IB hasn't needed to explain start times and networks at least a dozen times?

Maybe one, some Nicaraguan obscurity.
