Since there are some Aussie posters here, I'm curious of the hype down there about this fight. Is it true this is PPV and that Jones is getting 5 mil??
I think its great both of these fights will be on FREE TV STATESIDE in almost two weeks. GREAT!!!
I don't think I can emphasize how big this fight is I really dont.
Every single pub & club I have been in has the posters up the ads are all over TV. This is huge & by huge I mean bigger than any fight that has ever been shown in Australia bar maybe Fenech vs Nelson II. Bigger than Lewis vs Tyson type of big media wise out here.
What you have is a very popular Aussie everyman who hits like a mule vs a legend of the sport & one of it's most popular & polarising figures. They are both getting $5,000,000.00 at least & like every single fight worth a shit down here it is on PPV.
