    Default Are you a sucka if you buy the rematch?

    I've been suckered into buying ppv hyped garbage too many times. They prey on my love for boxing, dissapoint, wait enough time and catch my dumb ass again.


    How many will get rooked into buying the rematch?

    If there is a rematch I personally won't be buying it, the fight was staged, I'm not giving money to Corrutipion anymore. Pacquiao - Mayweather needs to happen.

    No - if the undercard is good enough

    People are suckers for buying into most of these match ups. Nobody is demanding half of these in stable fights Manny is participating in and yet it is spoonfed to the public.

    In stable is an obvious Arum scam. We can all see through him.

    I watched the feed off internet stream but as for a rematch, I think its more worthy of an HBO championship rather than HBO PPV.

    No way, unless there are several much more intruiging bouts on the undercard. Fat chance.

    It's a catch 22 isn't it? Like the OP said, they prey on our love for boxing and it's a damn shame that they aren't delivering the matches we want.

    I'd love to say you're a sucker for lining Arum's pockets but if you love boxing, what you gonna do? (learn to hook up your laptop to the TV and stream it )

    Cool Re: Are you a sucka if you buy the rematch?

    I watched it with the Jim Lampley & co. commentaries. I would have turned the volume off if I had known the result beforehand just to get an unbiased view of things but I still think it was a scam. A big scam.

    I'm no boxing expert but I just saw Pacquiao land most of the power punches, though Bradley did provide good footwork and dodging skills.

    Anyway, for all this crap we get over and over again and all the PEDs they juice up with (though that's another different issue), I don't actually "purchase" the fights but just wait till the following Monday and err... watch them.

    I'd be a right mug if I even watched the rematch. I don't want to fill the man's pockets.

    I dont have good luck with streams but the good undercard comment is a good reason to buy the ppv. I thoroughly enjoyed Baileys cone from behind one punch ko.

    Im with most though and wont be buying the rematch.

    Remember the old saying about money not growing on trees.

    I stopped paying for fights over a year ago.

    I did say that I would only change my mind on this if Pac v Mayweather happened but now have doubts if I would pay for that one even.

    Lost its appeal somewhat and I dont want either of them to get the huge payday they don't now deserve
    Don't bully fat kids - they've got enough on their plate
