Default Official Boycott Of Sky Box Office September 6th Card!!!

This is just not on.

The card featrures 1 world title fight, with a guy who did not even win a title in the ring, fight an average opponent.

Amir Khan agaisnt an unheard of Columbian who has only fought 2 guys with decent records.

Audley Harrison agaisnt a Taxi Driver.

and severall other low key fights.

I have been a big supporter of Khan as many of you well know, but this is ludicrous. Luckily I am in a position where 15 is not that much to me, its the principal for me. We should be getting charged extra money for this bullshit.

This is the official thread to boycott this card. DO NOT BUY IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

the email adress to make complaints to is [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Everyone on here should make a complaint. Were supposed to be in a ****ing credit crisis, and Sky and Frank Warran have the cheek to charge us for this.

If the is anyway of making this a sticky please do so.

This is a decent card but definitely not PPV worthy. I doubt anyone on here would buy it.

its a joke, this would only be slightly acceptable if a Card from the states was on later.

****** and Sky seem to think that having Khan headline will sell the fight to the general public and people will buy it.

It's the same with Bob Arum putting Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on PPV in America and have him fight nobodies.

On the same night we have;

At Houston (HBO): Juan Diaz vs. Michael Katsidis, 10 rounds, lightweights; Jorge Barrios vs. Rocky Juarez, 10 rounds, junior lightweights

I really hope Setanta pick this card up.

I thought that card was to good to be true from FW, its a good card but not PPV IMHO. As always its a personal choice whether to pay but I think they'll struggle to get decent numbers for this.

This card really ought to be available to Sky customers without having to shell out an extra £15 on top of subscription costs.

Its not PPV worthy in my view.

I will watch it on ******* or something similar for free. I do not mind paying to watch good fights but there are usually only a couple of them in a year. And Amir Khan is not a fighter I would pay to watch. Neither is a WBO title fight.
