I did not watch the Joseph Parker struggle final evening, and it would not appear like lots of my associates did both (yay, social media filter bubble!). Loads of folks did, although. Many through $50 a pop Sky TV pay per view, and a smaller however newsworthy quantity through varied unpaid on-line streams.
Promoter Dean Lonergan did not suppose a lot of this, and based on media studies has threatened – Taken model – to seek out the offending streamers and kill them. Wait, I imply sue them.
I am not going to inform Mr Lonergan easy methods to run his enterprise, and I am definitely not going to be impolite about it (hell, he hangs out with individuals who hit folks for cash). However here is one other approach to have a look at what occurred. “Wow, not solely are there folks eager sufficient and / or dumb sufficient to pay $50 through expensive previous Sky TV to see my struggle, it appears like there are hundreds extra who I may presumably promote some form of low-cost ticket to as effectively.”
That is not a menace, that is a chance. Flip it right into a social-friendly channel thought and also you’re heading for a knockout.
