Full Version: Anybody ordering the Rios/Marquez card next weekend?
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing

Just curious to see if anybody is considering ordering it. This is Rios' first shot at headlining a PPV card, and Im sure it's not going to be all that high, but as we've all witnessed the past and current PPV stars...they didn't start out doing a million buys either.

Pfft. This is a ridiculously ppv, but that's why streams were invented. But I mean some people bought Hopkins Dawson

I bought Dawson/Hopkins, and due to you guys and these round-by-round threads...I wouldn't want to miss a moment of boxing. I'm also putting my personal video recorder to use, so Im wont complain.

I just hope that it will be a good card....

I completely understand! I only stream UFC fights and international boxing cards! Besides, when Im streaming, it's hard to post at the same time. laugh.gif I've been reading that Mike Alvarado will be on the card as well.

Wait what? It's on PPV?

ok.gif I plan on doing the same. As a matter of fact, I may not even watch it just out of spite that it's on PPV. Not that anyone will care, but in my own mind, I will have gotten my point across lol

There is a PPV double-header with two separate bouts as main events from different locations featuring Brandon Rios and Juan Marquez

Rios is fighting Abril for the WBA Lightweight Championship in Vegas.

Than, over in Mexico City, Marquez fights Fedchenko for The Ring Lightweight Championship

The confusion is on the start time and price. I have two PPV channels showing the fight at 8 PM (CT) and another channel showing the fight at 7 PM(CT). However, other than the time, both show the same PPV information, which is correct?

And the price is listed at only $9.99? Is that possible? I haven't seen a $10 PPV for boxing since the days of Cedrick Kershners 'Heavyweight Explosion" series. Check your system guides and reply within please. Thanks!

9.99? its supposed to be 49.99 i believe. buy it now before they recognized their mistake.

LOL! Hahahaa!

Yea, I know! I saw that, $9.99?! We have TWC and they get their guide data from Tribune Media Services, so TMS is pushing out the wrong data. They are updating the guide/boxes tonight with new software, so I wonder how long before it shows the right price?

Years ago, I remember ordering a fight and TWC put up the wrong two fighters on the order screen! Hahahaha!

Yeah that $9.99 sounds good, but we all know how that will pan out. laugh.gif I remember PPV used to be about $25 when I was younger, and I also remember that wood grain cable box that used to mess up all the time...we used to call it "Big Dookie"...

how much do you think this will sell? am thinking somewhere around the 500-600k mark.

Im not sure it will be around the 500-600k range...Im thinking somewhere around 300-400...nothing more than that though. You gotta think about it, fights like Pac/Morales, Mayweather/Gatti, and so forth, do between 350- 450k ppvs.

Anybody smell an upset this weekend???

Yea I can see an upset. That rios quote on the front page has jinx written all over it lol "I will never lose to a no name like abril" or something to that extent. I'll laugh so hard if his ass gets sparked up

That's what I think too. Very boneheaded of HBO or Showtime not to pick this up. In reality, that $10 misprint may be the maximum that this fight is worth, not $45 as it is being reported. I wonder if HBO will replay this the following weekend?

That's a good question, and it doesn't look as if they will. I see that Mayweather/Cotto 24/7 airs at 10PM (EST), and the Mayweather interview with Dyson airs at 10:30PM. I checked the rest of my HBO stations, and nothing else comes up as "Boxing", so who knows.

Besides, if they were to replay it...would they just replay the Rios fight, or would they air the co-feature bout with Marquez as well? Im sure they'll make changes though.

(Regarding the $50,000 bonus to the winner.)

I like this idea! It may make fighters fight harder! It would be cool to see more of this in the future! That's what boxers did in the old days:

I don't think we are going to see two David Haye's in there! LOL!

I just got through watchin' the live weigh-in. Rios came in 2 lbs over the limit, but he still has an extra hour to make the weight.

If so, that guy can't catch a break. I've been watchin' him train for this fight (he hasn't been slackin'), so I kinda feel bad for the dude, especially since he hired a nutritionist.

If he has to do such a terrible Skeletor impression every time he tries to come in at lightweight, then why the fuck do they make him fight at that weight ?

Oh...I forgot...it's that bullshit they pull where they make you lose pounds so you can look better beating up on guys who are way too small to be fighting you.

I laughed my ass off when I read that guy over at boxingscene said that Rios looked like a chemo patient. Nothing against chemo patients, but that shit was funny...
