The worst, high-profile card of the year

Sorry for the negativity but looking at the Price/Skelton and Heffron/Vassell card got me thinking about similar poor cards.

Price v Skelton - Is a complete mismatch which most anticipate will be over before round 5/6
Williams v Goodings - Chief support. Ten rounder. Admittedly late replacement for Hamilton in a British title fight.
The rest = 4/6 rounders featuring local guys, the pick being Tony Dodson.

Maloney is clearly not stupid by packing the card with locals to maximise ticket sales for less money.

Vassell v Heffron - good CW title fight
Flintoff v Dawson - got that special attraction
Saunders v McDonagh - decent yet predictable little fight, probably go the distance with a shutout Saunders win.

Any other poor cards? Think Mitchell/Lora was poor wasn't it?

(@chatty Goodings any good?)

It's disappointing because Frank Maloney usually puts on brilliant domestic cards with exciting, evenly matched fights throughout.

Will we see Vassell - Heffron this weekend too? Or does Price overlap?
Yeah ive seen them avoiding the question too. I'd imagine it'll be on aorund half 8, then cut to Price, and back to Freddie
