Hatton vs Pacquiao....10am Sun. Sing Time...Where Best 2 C?

Post by Dave Magoo » Wed, 29 Apr 2009 6:33 pm

Hello good people.

Just noting that, according to the BBC website, Hatton vs Pacquiao is live from the MGM Grand Las Vegas from 3am BST, 10am Sing. Time on Sunday morning. Am keen as mustard to see it, but don't have access to the necessary cable channels, and would like to see it in a collective gathering anyway.

Anyone know of any establishment that may be open at the admittedly irreverent Sunday morning time of 10am AND will actually show the fight?

I'll check out the usual establishments at Boat Quay et al anyway over the weekend, but if anyone's got any inside knowledge ahead of that, would be great to hear it.

I reckon it'll be a cracker :D

Cheers!!
One day, lad, all this will be yours....what, the curtains?

Let me know if you find any establishment that will be showing the fight. But I doubt you'll find any. I've been watching Pacquiao fights the past couple of years on sopcast. Guess there's just not much interest in Singapore on boxing.

Thanks, Moto and Vink. Will keep you updated.

I think it's highly unlikely to be honest. The only place I can think of that may show it and be open at that time is Turnstyles in Holland Village. Where better than a dedicated Sports Bar, right? I'll check with them and post if it is going ahead.

Of course, if anyone else knows of anywhere!!!

Ignore my previous TurnStyles suggestion...it doesn't open till 5pm apparently.

Will keep looking....

Just to update y'all, haven't found anywhere unfortunately, and it's not on any of the usual sports channels either by the looks of it.

Looks like sopcast or similar, it is :( .

Never mind...if anyone does find somewhere last minute, please post on here!!

Is sopcast normally reliable, I paid for the fight, but link doesn't go any where! Anyone had problems with them taking more than they should from the account? Just curious as i want to be prepared for the worst :(

Post by Dave Magoo » Sun, 03 May 2009 12:19 am

Well done, Danno...have noted 'My Humps Pub' & will do my very best to get there b4 10am for sure.

Ksl...u'll need to ask Vink abwt sopcast, as not used b4, & just referenced the post's suggestion. Good luck.

Here's to a morning of (hopefully) blinding pugelism :D

What we usually get on sopcast are from free channels. So far, the past 3 Pacquiao fights, the video and audio were ok. Not HD quality but very much viewable. Just have to look for the channels that show the fight. (CCTV5, USA, etc)

Cheers Vink & KSL...U coming?

Post by Dave Magoo » Sun, 03 May 2009 3:04 am

Cheers for the info, Vink, and 4 the enquiry in the first place, KSL. But rather than Sopcast it solo, as it were, why don't you join Danno, myself and anyone else who's up for a beer brunch to catch it at 'My Humps'?

Wud be gud to have a Sing Expats posse there 4 sure!!

Appreciate it's late notice, but keep it in mind.

See y'all early doors of the moro.

A none starter really, Packman has always been a far slicker fighter, than Hatton, but fair play to the guy, i nice pay day. and time to retire.

Wasted 30$ on nothing, becuase they couldn't deliver, asked for a refund, that should be interesting!

Just managed to see it, Packman really outclassed him for hand speed, and a quick brain, that's what counts, Hattons reactions are too slow, but a good fight all the same.
