Can I ask why they would get $ 1.00 ? It seems kind of petty. Either give it for free or charge people for it. What is the $ 1.00 thing about ?

Wow, a buck for an HD fight? Sounds cool. Is the only way to sign up for this by calling? Or can you do it through the STB?

Okay, I'm going to order. Is this the fight? Looks like that goof Golota will be fighting that night too...

But how do we know it is really going to be in HD? I don't see it mentioned anywhere that it is and I don't trust the CSRs anymore! Also, has anyone ever ordered a PPV event from Voom like this? I would hate to invite a bunch of people over and not have it work or come in at all. :no

FunkyBoss,

We might get confirmation about it that is indeed HD before the fight. Right now, only csr's seem to know that it will be in HD. VOOM had a special agreement with Don King Production. If this is a Don King Production, he will most likely have it in HD as part of the deal. The last time, back in December, we got the fight for free. Hang in there as we are trying to get confirmation about it.

Is there a schedule of the upcoming ppv boxing events on Voom? Do we only get Don King Productions?

This will be only the second boxing event on Voom, both are Don King productions. Next Don King event will be the rematch of Roy Jones Jr. vs Antonio Tarver on May 15. I hope it will be on Voom
