For anyone interested, we will be showing the Haye vs Klitschko fight at the Elephant and Castle on Saturday.
There will be a small charge (£3) to watch although it will be free to get into the pub if you are not in the area where the match will be shown.
Hope that all makes sense.

hi ho, not seen a lot, but for me a sport is either a game, match or competition.
I suppose I could have gone with bout, but match is just as valid.
Or are you referring to the quality of boxing nowadays?

I stand corrected - sorry huw.
I kind of assumed bout and fight was the common vernacular, match to me sounds wrong. but you live and learn

Just out of interest, why the £3 charge?

My guess is it costs about a fiver per punch to put on

Hi Huw how are you going to stop cunning customers who are too tight to pay £3 from slowly moving into to the boxing area?
Just a thought.

One of the most important people in the world of boxing is the match-maker, he ensures that both fighters are of the correct weight and evenly matched in experience.
As to the £3 fee, very cheap for a boxing fan to watch such a fight. Tickets prices for that fight will be very high. In addition the fee paid by a publican to screen the fight legally will be several hundred pounds so for ¬£3 I suggest any fight fan grabs the bargain.

Thanks for explaning that jrsussex. I didn't realise the pub was having to pay extra to screen the fight.

All boxing is fixed now. You see better fights outside the charcol grill on a friday night. And at least they're not pay per view.

Thanks JR, you're right. It costs a few hundred pounds to show the boxing, so the hope is that the cover charge will help to pay for this as there's very little chance that enough beer will be sold to cover the cost on it's own.
Don, hopefully the two staff covering the room where the boxing will be shown will be enough to prevent the unscrupulous "wandering" in

My girlfriend is staying with me Saturday night which makes it very difficult for me to get to the Elly for the boxing. She won't want to come to the Elly and I wouldn't want her there anyway so any ideas on an excuse to get me out?

I suggest you just tell her your popping round to see your other bird, you probably get in less trouble.
