Great, good job guys.  Cost is about that of a few drinks and a couple of taxis to watch it at the pub, and this way the only fight I'll get into would be with the missus or the dogs!  Robot tongue

Bish Bash Boris, why don't you get the missus to fight the dogs, that way you can watch the boxing in peace.

As for me, I'll just stay out of the loop for a few hours, then watch it live delayed.
