Default Main Event taking the piss

Had a quick look at their web page. Hatton v Castillo is $40 while Mundine v Neivas is $50. My god there must be a lot of suckers out there for them to justify this, that's all I can say.

Rumour floating around that Soliman is fighting Echols on the undercard of Hatton v Castillo. Apparently he left today, according to another forum.

Wasn't Oganov originally scheduled to face Echols?

I will definitely be getting Hatton vs Castillo. No way in hell am I buying the Mundine card. Would be good to see Soliman vs Echols. Would be a good way for Sam to try to get some credability back even though Echols is fairly old now.

They are obviously trying to cater for the Australian Market by including one of our fighters. Which is strange to me because you wouldn't think our market would be a very big one in terms of PPV sales

Actually no. Australia is quite a moderate ppv market. For fights in the US, Australia's PPV figures are similiar to Britains, i think 35 000 purchases on average.

For purchasers in relation to population we kick their arse.

Oganov was meant to fight him yes but Fenech wouldn't let him so Oganov saw the light and ditched Fenech for Shaw!

Seems to be a very common occurence for anyone with any brains and talent to say asta la vista to young Jeffrey!! Coudln't happen to a nicer guy. Guys he's still hoping on a tyson come back?!!

He hasn't exactly done wonders for Oganov's career in terms of management. The guy should have taken on a contender well before now. He has wasted a lot of time.

He seems good, but is just a prospect hasn't been tested enough to really make any sought of proper judgement.

The cab ride to your place isn't worth the fight itself either... especially when I can just jump in the back of Nievas' and it would be live AND free as he's heading to the fight anyways!
