    Default Boxingguru shut down by city of london police

    Some may say good riddance. Others may say awww crap.

    I am willing to bet my ass that there are people on these forums that used it and probably will be affected.

    Whats your view?

    Definitely sucks for me, it was my go to site lately. Not sure why anyone here would say good riddance, unless we have some networks execs in hiding. What is the deal with some of these cheap pay stream sites, are they perfectly legal or could the same thing happen there? Also is the quality feed much better and safe from freezing up etc?

    We have heard and it is terrible news for us true boxing cheap ass fans.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    The City of London are a murky lot. Basically anything goes as long as there is money for them and a masons handshake will seal the deal. Government pervs, banking corruption....all fine. Handshakes and envelopes will settle it, but if you want to watch some boxing on a grainy broken stream? Well we are having none of that. This story is a direct summary of modern Britain.

    Will this encourage more people to pay for ppv events and subscribe to channels such as Box Nation or will people just look for alternatives?

    It would be a good thing ultimately if more money pumped into the sport went towards boxers, gyms, facilities, events etc but my gut feeling tells me that most money goes to the middle man.

    I usually do ppv events if its a fight with interest among a few friends, get the beers in stay up late get drunk and watch the boxing. But now i will miss all those fights that i would watch out of curiosity, fighters i never heard of and fighters that are just starting pro etc etc ...

    To be fair i think boxingguru actually promoted the sport. Now its gone a lot of people will loose interest.

    I've had the piracy argument tons of times before online and in person, and it's always the same thing. People support piracy because they get shit for free, plain and simple, and look at it as a good thing, but it's not. These guys that run the streaming sites are STEALING a product that someone else concieved, bankrolled, and brought to fruition, and they are profiting from that stolen property by spamming you with junk ads.

    We've all pirated and streamed before, but there's no way to defend it.

    Think the prices for PPV are too high? Then don't buy it. That's your right as a consumer. As a society, we don't get to steal whatever we deem is too expensive. That's silly.

    Think you're sticking to "the man" when you pirate? You're not. You're hurting the little guy, because those are the guys who lose their job when the bottom line is lower than expected.

    Stealing and giving away the product for free (and making a nice profit of your own through the junk ads on your site) doesn't really fit my definition of promoting the sport. They're leaching off the sport, is more like it.

    And if people lose interest in the sport because they can no longer steal the product for free, fuck em.

    Nobody is going to pay for every single PPV event and subscribe to every channel that shows fights unless you are flush. I am willing to pay money to watch fights that i want to watch. However i am not prepared to pay for every single fight on TV, but i am curious about watching some fights. For example i had no idea who GGG was before the Rosado fight and i would not have ever seen him fight if it wasn't for boxingguru, Now i am prepared to pay to watch GGG's fights.

    That's promotion right there however you look at it.
