Hello. How are you? I am fine. What I want to do here is one of those dream boxing card type threads, a five-fight card, but with a bit of a difference in that it has to be proportional. Let me explain what I mean. Most dream cards look a bit like this: LOUIS V ALI MARCIANO V FRAZIER LEANORD V ROBINSON HOPKINS V HAGLER OLIVARES V JOFRE If this bizarre fantasy land were real though, this wouldn't happen...I know that makes no sense in its own way - but we're a forum that argues constantly about what type of gloves will be used in totally made up fantasy fights, so the culture is there a bit. What I mean is, there is no way, even in fantasy pugilist universe, that Marciano-Frazier is a supporting fight to anything - not even Louis-Ali. Leoanrd-Robinson can't be anything but main event. However, proportionally, maybe, arguably, Olivares-Jofre could be made chief support to that contest given the level of purses in 1960/70 era bantamweight divisions. What i'm saying is you have to justify the different slots you have on your card. Fight five, the first televised fight, might be a ten-round routine dust up for one of your favourite fights against a decent fighter from a different era for example - imagine putting Hopkins-Gorilla Jones on as the opener, for example. A) that's a cool as all hell fight and B) It's possible to imagine Hopkins agreeing to take good money for a fight he'd be expected to win over ten on the biggest card in history - but, conversely, Marvin Hagler, he'd take it as an insult to be fifth on the card - he'd say no. Think about the fighters, their management, risk reward, and how much money is in the pot. Over-complicating things, am I? You ain't heard nothing yet. First, there's a structure. The first two fights HAVE to be ten round fights. That means they can't be championship fights (or can they?). Secondly, these fights are going to be big money on the all time biggest card of all time (Assuming you get the main event right...) but not huge, huge money - you couldn't pay Oscar and Hatton to open a ten-rounder for example. They will say no to the money on offer and they'll say no to boxing such a difficult fight at the bottom of the card. Hatton won't fight Oscar or Cotto but he might agree to fight Witter, because he'd get such a big end of the low money - it's up to you to present these arguments. Third fight must be either a ten or a twelve round fight, fourth can be twelve or fifteen as per your preference, main event MUST be fifteen. No sneaking in pre- or post-prime versions of these guys to get names on the docket. If you want Tyson, it's prime Tyson earning an ATG payday or a diminished one further down the card where he takes a cut for good reason. State a weight and whether or not it is a title fight. Finally, I'm going to judge all your efforts. You will either get a NOT COOL: Or congratulations son, you're a narc. Sorry i'm so weird everyone. Now, I'm going to provide an example, but I'll be staying away (I hope!) from fights you might have chosen! It should look something like this: MAIN EVENT: Tyson Fury versus Mike Tyson, 15 rounds, undisputed heavyweight championship of the world. This would be a massive promotion and generate loads of cash for the card with Tyson taking the big chunk of the massive payday and Fury doing less well but still getting a career's best. CHIEF SUPPORT: Ezzard Charles versus Archie Moore IV, 15 rounds, undisputed light-heavyweight championship of the world. A primed Moore meets his old nemisis as defending champ, and I think given how each of their careers went pre-heavyweight, this makes perfect sense for a first defence for Archie and there's just about enough schrill to get it down. FIGHT 3: Terry McGovern versus Venice Borkhorsor, 10 rounds, bantamweight. I think that 10 rounds will be enough given thirty rounds for the first two, plus it probably gets me a few pennies off these guys who won' the that expensive anyway and who love to fight/aren't big names. It would be the biggest night of Venice's career and McGovern would fancy it, total war, might steal the show. FIGHT 2: Derrick Chirora versus Dillian Whyte, 10 rounds, heavyweight, cheapo heavyweight dust-up which would make household names of the two contestants, so they'd take it and it would probably be great fun. FIGHT 1: Bernard Hopkins vs Gorilla Jones, 10 rounds, non-title fight middleweight, would love to see B-Hop on the card just for the madness at the 10 deep press conferences and this would be a really interesting fight where Jones has a chance to put himself right in the title picture against a champion in the old-fashioned way. Get me? To those of you who have read all the way to the bottom, I salute you. Remember, it's your card for all that it's a mad exercise and it should include the fights you really want to see. For those that don't make it to the bottom: I legit reserve the right to remove any posts from this thread that are not cognitive of the OP! You have been warned, even though you're not reading this, so not really.
