Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Hopefully this PPV does terrible numbers. There was a time in the UK when you had to be a global superstar to get on PPV e.g Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Naseem Hamed. I can't help but feel this is Audley Harrison's fault, he completley turned terrestrial TV off boxing. Now we have a PPV headlined by four guys who are not even household names in Britain and who have never won a world title between them. (LOL WBO)

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

The thing that annoys me is that surely Sky realise why Ricky Hatton became so hugely popular. He was fighting on Friday and Saturday nights regularly on Sky Sports. He built up his following which enabled Sky to bring him to Box Office and therefore get the big PPV numbers.

I mean wtf has Cleverly/De Gale/Groves actually done to be rewarded with a PPV show?

Answer: Nothing.

Hopefully, like you say, this sells horribly.

lol, Bellew is overweight and the fight is off. Cleverly will now be facing.....Aleksy Kuziemski (who?). This just gets worse and worse.

Sky quite rightfully refused the recent Khan fight for PPV so I don't see how they can put this pile of **** on PPV.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Two idiots.

The biggest idiot out of everyone involved is Groves' trainer Adam Booth. God, I hate that prick.

Still PPV. LOL.

I actually like Adam Booth. Surely you can't hate him more than James Defail though??

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

damn so tilting. why? why was roy so fat. he was barely moving it was a close fight imo with a lot of hope in the end. ring referee is an idiot. should've stopped fight earlier. roy was disqualified for the exact same thing in his 1st fight with montell griffin imo. i should be happy since roy is already a legend and denis is russian...but he doesn't have future imo so it's irrelevant. well at least not with hryunov - that idiot already spoiled povetkin's career.

there was nothing close about the fight. Roy narrowly won the first round, and might have had the 3rd round tied. From there on he looked gassed and took quite a bit of punishment and without a doubt lost every round.

scorecards will be published tomorrow probably. def 1st, 3rd(2nd was close imo), then took some 'punishment' but then it kinda evened out again(i don't remember exact round numbers) though denis tried to steal some rounds in the end(when roy was more active whole round but last 30seconds), surely won 9th and 10th could've even been 10-8.
i really don't know why did he do that - he wasn't well prepared (commentators near the ring said he was 'in terrible condition' and imo he was like tyson in tyson-lewis) and didn't look very motivated either so it wasn't for the love of boxing, he didn't think he's well known in russia, so not 'for his fans' and i doubt he made any serious money. i heard he wasn't even paid for his fight with hopkins (ppv+tickets~=$5m, -~50% for taxes and promoters ~=2.5mil, according to contract hopkins gets first 3.5 mil, then jones gets 3.5mil then they chop whats left)

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Not relevant to present time, but came across this amazing interview of Mike Tyson and Jim Grey from a while ago . F'n hilarious @ 0:38 - 1:10 . Audio is a bit out of sync, but the pauses between them make it even funnier.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rw47gXsDwjw

Jim : "Mike, were ya really sick this week, what was the problem?"

Tyson : "I Broke my back"

:::PAUSE.....:::

Jim : "Wha... What do you mean by that?"

Tyson : "My back is BROKEN"

Jim : What part eh,eh a Vertebra or what portion?

Tyson : SPINAL

:::PAUSE...:::


roflcopter x 1mirryawn.


On another note, I didn't know Roach ever trained Mike.
