To start this isn't a Matchroom vs Boxxer vs Queensbury thread. Just noticed Joyce vs Zhang is on the Bluelight tickets site. I'd wager 80% of UK shows in the last 18 have been giving away free tickets, barring a couple massive shows or the York Hall ones. It's a trend a cross all promoters. I fear once people start knowing they can just get freebies on the week or build up to a fight they won't bother buying tickets and wait for that. How bigger issue is this? And bad to does this currently reflect on the state of UK boxing. If you lived in London and had a Bluelight card I reckon you could have attended 20 shows in 12 months and not paid a penny. Again this isn't a well x promoter did better than others. The top 3 promoters are all guilty of it, and despite the freebies there have been plenty of empty seats!
