  • This is the real boxing world
    Where unknown guys jump to the ring to do their best and out a show for free (not PPV)

    But as soon as the fight is good/important they(promoters) quickly put a price (PPV)

    And the worst very expensive price

    But what can we do????

    Everything is money now days

    Is not like before when boxers did not care about money , they fought for few bucks and we enjoy boxing at maximum

    The real boxing world (1990’s to earlier 1900’s)

    In 1992 we got the fist PPV with Jc Chavez vs hector Camacho since then everything went down

    I don’t think Benavides vs Andrade should be PPV

    The winner vs canelo would be ok for PPV

    Benavides vs Andrade should be $30 dls PPV not $75

    $ 75 dls PPV should be for fury vs usyk (just an example)

    • And many of those boxers ended up slurring and walking on their heels. While you and the promoters were happy the fighters just “fought for few bucks”.
      What fighters “did not care about money”? You’re living the fantasy world of the casual fan.
      The fans gripe about fighters wanting to get paid and have no solutions when fighters get hurt. You see no comments from Boxing fans to keep guys like G. McClellan and P. Colon and their thoughts.
      The fans fantasize the money for expensive care appears out of thin air.
      And they shouldnt care about money.
      If you count for inflation that PPV fight from 1992 would be $75.

      • I think you missed what he was saying. Carlos, no disrespect but does not articulate his English correctly. He is correct that there are too many pay per views. Boxers, yes deserve their pay all of it and too many times are not paid enough for their sacrifice, but they know what they signed up for. I knew when I started fighting even though it was amateur and I knew when I went to the academy as an officer what could happen. Yet, we or me or they still did it. It is all our hopes that we make it big in the ring or survive the streets. Some do, some don’t. It’s the chance we take, nothing casual about it.

    • PPV started way before that-Floyd Patterson vs Sonny Liston in 1962 was in theaters for five dollars which seemed like a lot of money at the time. No other fights and this one lasted one round. Showed replay a few times and that was it.

  • As a retired fighter, I’ll support every small or club show that I can. Those are the lifeline of boxing. I always meet a lot of good people at boxing shows; former fellow pros or just great fight fans in general. Thunder Studios is a nice venue; not a bad seat in the house!

  • rather watch devin haney run from regis prograis all night then watch this

  • i just counted the upcoming fights 11 out of 11 only one free fight from espn, rest you have to pay for, so there goes my favorite sport, as an 85 year old fan i will miss all those ppv fights i am upset
