View Full Version : Hatton: Worth 15 and do the US care?

01-19-2007, 12:23 AM
OK, the dilemma is, do I spend 15 of my hard earned cash to watch Ricky Hatton's fight in Vegas Sat Night?? I love watching Hatton fight and was alarmed at the amount of weight he clapped on after his last (very unconvincing) fight, but he's back in fighting shape and I'm hoping he'll be back on form.
A big thing on Sky is made out of it being Hatton's debut on US soil, and I was just wondering whether the Americans actually give a shit?? We always tend to hype a sporting export, only to reply with either "I knew they would" if they do well or "I knew they were shit really" if they bomb out stateside.
Any thoughts??

it definitely is not one of the top 4 mainstream sports here... (baseball, american football, basketball, hockey)

but it is widely followed nonetheless. just not by me, so i do not know much about it... sorry.

BUT i say GO!!! it sounds like a good ol time!...

Who's Hatten? This a boxing thing?

01-19-2007, 07:48 PM
Yeah, its boxing.

And 15/$30 for something that could technically be all over in a few rounds.....

Although this does look like a good fight

Well I don't speak for all of the US but I don't care. I will say this though, I buy a ton of ppv events, and they are all $40-50 so $30 sounds cheap.

What, $30 for something that could last 2 minutes?? Bargain!

Paying $50 for a whole PPV event is different

recommend that go with winamp, you gotta get some codec for vlc or you just get audio, not worth the hassle

Nice one mate - ta very muchly - and you were right, Sky can now throw their 23 up their arses !!

01-22-2007, 01:56 PM
ooops, I paid 15 for a sub-standard Hatton fight, and a way below average Castillo fight, both were poor on the night, wish I had seen this thread earlier!

01-22-2007, 05:21 PM
