It should be about the same as the over/under for the number of PPV buys. At $44.95, I doubt they'll even approach WWE PPV numbers.

EDIT: Besides, if anything truly bizarre happens, HBO will show it next week during the Wright/Mosley rematch.

My God what an horrendous card. Byrd was the only one that looked respectable. Holyfield should REALLY retire, he looked slow and worse...without that fighting spirit he always had. Ruiz and Golata was a travesty and maybe the single worst headline bout I've ever seen. This PPV proved once again how sad is the heavyweight division.

I'm wondering if James Toney won't be able to make short work of the Heavyweight division when he heals. Wow. Who'd have ever thought you hear something like that.

I actually thought Golata (if he could keep from losing it in the ring of course) was easily the best of all of them. The only time he's really gotten beaten decisively was against Lewis.

That's partly because when he was in trouble in other fights he went the low blow. To say Lewis beat him decisively may be an understatement too. Golota couldn't comprehend what was happening. That's gotta take some getting over, if he could ever recover fully......

But in Golata/Bowe II he was kicking Bowe's ass and went to the low blow just because he... kind of lost it.

I agree his whupping by Lewis was more than a "decisive" loss, and I forgot about his loss to Grant also though.

    "To my practised mind, Holyfield shouldn't be fighting any more."


Holyfield's response:

    Originally posted by The BBC
    "Why do they want to usher me out?" he said.
    "What have I done to this game that they don't want me in it anymore?
    "Do you really care about a person so much that you want to protect him from himself?
    "There isn't that much love in the world to go against a person's will," he insisted.



Sad. Just...sad.
