34.95 - Too Much for Night of Fury

Although the bouts appear interesting and might be competitive, at 34.95 I
won't be buying.

Manuel Medina (60-12) vs. Juan Manuel Marquez (39-2)
David Santos (42-5) vs. Carlos Hernandez (37-3-1)
Miguel Cotto (13-0) vs. Cesar Bazan (39-5-1)

 If it was 10.00 less maybe.

I agree as this is awful!! Now Arum is talking about a PPV date with Jesus
Chavez upcoming???
These fights are ESPN fights and some are HBO undercards, but c'mon now!!!

These aren't horrible fights, but c'mon, aren't these the kind of matches you
see for free on ESPN2 and Telefutura for nothing? $15 or $20 is
reasonable...$34,95 is crazy.

But it will be more entertaining than cards costing much more in the past.
Tyson's last ten fights come to mind.

While these bouts may be good, if the public starts paying for them on PPV,
free bouts on ESPN, HBO and Showtime will soon go away and everything will
be PPV.  It will be the beginning of the end of free boxing on television.
That's just my opinion but, I could be wrong.

Right. This is a *good* card -- just not at the price.
