    Angry Casual boxing fans and even some hardcore boxing fans are a JOKE.

    Possibly the biggest fight of the year, a fight of the year contender,one of the greatest trilogies ever,and probably the best trilogy most of us will see in our lifetimes and hardly any talk about it. Heck I'm not even sure the tickets have sold out yet. People are so excited and willing to justify gimmick matches(RJJV TITO_) and pointless matches(Oscar v Floyd 2) yet when it comes to HUGE MATCHES like Rafa v Isreal 3, no-one bats an eyelid. Incredible.

    The fight is free bro although if your busy,then that's cool.Actually,no,it's not! Let your fighter watch this fight and see how 2 fighters can brawl with skill. These are 2 POUND FOR POUND fighters imo. The feints,technique,power,jab,how to get inside,it's all in this fight.

    I'd be interested if the fight was being shown in the UK.

    I'm not talking about debating. I just mean genral buzz,people talking about it,threads, who is going to win and how. I see Mick,VD and few others but not just here,fans in general. We had hundreds of Oscar v Floyd 2 and Tito v RJ threads,this will have more excitement than those fights combined.

    Probably the lack of interest is to do with a with a small promotion..and that's because these type of fights are small money compared with the JOnes-Trinidad etc...

    ..didn't Bilbo (not having a dig at him) when he joined this site say he DIDN'T watch fighters below middleweight or something? Maybe that's true of many hardcore/casual fans

    AS ono said this fight isn't being shown in the UK nor were the other 2 yet this type of fight MUST cost peanuts compared with the majority that get bought

    Wow,not shown in teh UK.I don't even pay attention to what they show here,downloading all the way!

    And if people have that atitude of not watching smaller fighters,then they are nuts! And I do recall Bilbo making a comment like that but he's changed his opinion during his time here,heck I think he even watched Calderon v Cazares and though it was awesome!

    yeah Bilbo changed his opinion but he's a good example of the casual fan.. I used to work in a bar where I had boxing on all the time, 8 out of 10 people would come in, see the boxing and go "oh great boxing, are there HEAVYWEIGHTS fighting"

    Wouldn't matter how good the fight on was they'd fuck off if weren't heavyweights.. incredible really

    ....just tell them they are heavyweights, they won't know the difference


    Everyone got like that because they saw Tyson....little did they know Tommy Hearns was doing virtually the same thing in the lighter weights
