-I will certainly see the Cotto-Martinez fight. I think it is important, the atmosphere should be great, and I think it will be a good fight. I have little confidence that the undercard will be good, but I just can't pass that main event up.
-I don't know about Pac-Bradley. I really want to see the main event, but the undercard is absolutely terrible and that makes me so upset that I don't even want to give Arum a dime. I will probably watch that fight at a friend's home or the local bar here that shows the PPV events for free.
-The Mayweather-Maidana fight depends on the undercard. If a great 2nd fight is made, i will order it. If it is just an ok 2nd fight with no real interesting 3rd and 4th fights, I won't order it.
-I will probably get the Canel-Angulo fight because the entire card is solid and the main event should be exciting.
1. I like this fight as well, but do you think it's really PPV worthy? I'm not saying that it truly isn't, but why do you feel that it's PPV worthy, or do you? The undercard may not be all that bad, because Arum's involved, but the fact that DiBella is copromoting it, may not be all that bad...that's if Arum doesn't have exclusive rights to promote the whole card.
2. Same here, I wanna see how the main event pans out, but Arum's made it clear just how shitty the undercard is. Dude didn't lift a finger to make a decent undercard.
3. At least it appears that GBP tries to put on great undercards for these Mayweather cards, but it sucks, because most of those fights end up getting cancelled and the opponents change so much before the fight date. I remember Morales was supposed to fight Matthyse, Crolla, and Barrios for the Star Power card, and all of those opponents pulled out. It probably would've been the end of Morales, but I really wanted to see him and Matthysse fight.
4. I'm drooling over the Canelo/Angulo card, but seriously, they could've had this fight on Showtime Championship Boxing. I can't really complain about the card, but if Broner/Maidana was being bashed for being a PPV (before they decided not to), then I'm not sure why there have been little complaints about Canelo's fight being a PPV.
Overall, boxing fans are cheap and fickle, period. Guys run around complaining about what they will and wont order, like someone gives a damn...like somebody's gonna beg them to order it.
