Golden Boy Promotions released their Chuck Liddell vs Tito Ortiz poster today. I don’t know why, but it finally makes the fight between these two seem like reality. Thus far, it’s just been talking and ‘what ifs’, but the poster makes it feel like this fight will actually happen.
The release of the poster is concurrent with tickets going on sale for the event. However, there is still no word on what the rest of the card will look like. What we do know is that Gleison Tibau will be on the undercard, somewhere.
The event is just two months away and hopefully, we will hear more about the rest of the card. Golden Boy has been a prominent boxing promotion over the years and undercards in boxing aren’t usually very important or well-promoted. In MMA, we live for ALL of the fights, not just the main event.
We can only hope that someone is in Oscar De La Hoya’s ear, letting him know this. MMA fans are very frugal and will only pay money for a full card. We rarely buy PPV’s based on one marquee matchup.
Oscar has to know this. Right?
