just finished watching after sky+ing it lastnight as i had work early this morning. Broadcast cut off maybe 3 seconds after guillard tapped. when i pay for a premium service, i expect a premium service.

And frankly i dont give a hoot whether americans, canadians, or martians get adverts between rounds, it doesnt mean i have to enjoy it. personally i think it takes alot away from the enjoyment and intensity of the fights, and theres no need for them to do it.

102 coverage was great. I'm hoping they only went half-assed because it was Fight Night, and 103 will be ok.

Side note, can us brits view pre-lim fights before 103 too? or is that just for the U.S.?
