Dear oh dear,
what a way to go about undermining a very very good boxing website and forum.This fight' is a waste of time, has no value, shouldnt be happening, in a rubbish venue, will be full of pillocks & football fans' etc etc etc. Lets get real , this thread is on its 9th page on a fight that was announced yesterday ; when did that last happen? possibly the old Hatton website ?? All the football fans will be out; yes probably, but so what, just beacuse it's not a wednesday night at the York Hall all the 'afficienados' are now above watching a stadium fight. Stadiums are poor venues ; well possibly , but apart from getting wet going in and out, and the fight being average, Hamburg provided quite a venue last summer for about £50 . I also remember about 20,000 people walking around Vegas in Dec 09 without tickets who would have liked a stadium venue.
yes, there are lots of questions about whether this fight should be happening, and the merits of both fighters, but watch the publicity over the next few weeks, that cant be a bad thing for boxing in general, and also for those of us who are boxing fans, but ( and take a deep breath) are football fans as well.
Lets enjoy the fact that our sport will get attention ( good and bad) and we dont waste our time worrying about fights that may never happen, and enjoy those that do.
Mate if you think this thread is bad get over to the Manny Floyd threads
Its a forum where people DEBATE !! Its not undermining the forum to have an opinion negative about this fight !! I can see exactly why people may not be positive about it.
There will be Dickheads/chavs who think they are Danny Dyer at the fight, it is a shit venue, it is a nightmare to get too and from, the fighters are clowns, It will have people singing that wank bubbles song, it will prob be over in two rounds and the tickets are expensive, i agree with all of that !!
But i tell you what i think its great and im going without a doubt !!!
