Thread: Boxing!

  1. #1831
    Anyone ever been to Vegas for a boxing show? Tempted to go for Fury vs Wilder 3 in July as suggested by Top Rank in an interview yesterday. The only thing is one of the boxing forums suggest that the cheapest tickets will double from $500 to $1000.

    Was in Vegas the weekend of Canelo GGG 1 , never managed to get a ticket for the fight but just being there among it was good .

    Some pals were in Vegas for the Fury fight last week. They picked up tickets for $500 (face value), very good seats but not floor seats. Big fights tend not to sell out there, unlike over here but theyre no cheap. Bars in the strip were charging $100 to get in to watch the fight on TV.

    a day of so later was the weight in and well my brother and i went and sat in the mgm arena though we got bored though watching pre weigh in activities but it was an experince for sure.

    Edit - p.s. it will either be Vegas or Hibs in Europe, since we are winning the cup, Vegas won't happen this year.

    Good man! I will check out the thread.

    35 quid ones for me. Unless floor seats end up watching it on the big screen anyway.

    And the 6 weeks prior to the fight Id imagine. Makes the decision to go with Davison very odd or shows the disregard they have for Khongsong.

    I know a few like your boxing so what's the thoughts on Tyson making a comeback ( charity rounds only)

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/boxing/52530283

    Pretty certain those punches would kill me!

    He was a washed up has-been when loosing to Lewis in 2002. Even more so when embarrassed by Williams & McBride a couple of years later. Hes now also a self confessed complete stoner. He should stick to making a fool of himself in films and leave the sweet science to the young ones.

    I've watched a YouTube video of his ring entrance to the music Time4SumAksion. I think it was his first fight out of jail. Watching Tyson come through the crowds with his entourage and that music playing is spine tingling.

    https://youtu.be/aF2k3EBkFYo

    Good piece on how good he could have been on the bbc website and how true were Frank Sinatra's words to him?

    I don't think Tyson has any ambitions to actually fight again as such. That would be madness. The training videos look slick but that characterised his last few fights, he could give you 3 rounds but if his opponent wasn't out of there at that point then Tyson had nothing left. An exhibition or 2 probably appeals to him and his fanbase.

    I find Tyson and his redemption somewhat troubling. At his best there is no doubt he was a phenomenal talent, he was ferocious but skilful. However whilst everyone deserves a second chance and the right to rehabilitation I find his new image as a lovable rogue a bit unsettling. People should remember what he is and the impact his actions had on another person.

    Agreed. The current Tyson love-in is doing my head in. In his prime he was phenomenal. Unfortunately his prime was too short lived for him to be anywhere near top 5 heavyweights. His behaviour inside and outside the ring was despicable at times. Ive no idea how the likes of Hollyfield & Lewis can be doing with him.

    Ambitious stuff.
