    Genuine Word title fight, a rarity, yet no UK coverage, as far as I know!

    Not one casual would stay up for it

    Not worth purchasing for any TV network here

    Just found it. It’s on FITE for £9.99.

    £10 is a bargain for this compelling fight. By comparison, they had listed £23 for the postponed Lopez - Kambossos mandatory.

    It’s a great fight but casuals won’t have heard of either.

    You’re right, and lucky to have any friends with even a remote interest in boxing. Anyone I come across, if the subject should come up, have no idea about this decidedly niche sport. Despite what Ed Hearn says about its popularity.
    FITE is a good service. I bought the last Charlo brothers bill as well as Loma - Lopez and Taylor - Ramirez. They serve up quality fights without the flag waving dross, we get from other providers.

    Fite TV is good enough for me, set up with the Xbox and you're laughing.

    Don't know much about Castano, but he gave Lara a very tough fight. Bookies have Charlo as a steady favourite, but I have a feeling that this will be a war.

    Argentinians are warriors.

    Yeah I like Fite TV. No subscription fee, just pay for the fights you wanna see. Usually top drawers fights on there too.

    Disgraceful. Absolute robbery.

    It was definitely a fight of the year contender. It's a shame Sky didn't go after a PBC deal as I think their shows, particularly the main events, are a cut above. Certainly better than Matchroom USA on DAZN.

    Great fight, pity about Nelson Vasquez’s, Adelaide Byrd like, scorecard, requires an explanation. Enjoyed FITE’ let’s get down to business presentation. No bank of ex - boxers waffling on, no wittering eye candy, with zero expertiese, just one commentator, and ring interviewer.I know some don’t like Ray Flores, but I like his enthusiasm, while Jim Gray is excellent.

    There’s fights down my local leisure centre that are better than Matchroom’s main events.
