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?
They're being pretty quiet about this. A few people have asked them on twitter but they haven't replied. They've said that the fight Price is starting at 9:30 (finishing at 9:35) and Flintoff's fight will be after. Will be annoying if they don't show Vassell/Heffron.. that's the best fight of the night easily.
We are getting it:-

The Full Running Order

6.50pm - Joe Selkirk v TBA

7.35pm - Steve Williams v Kirk Goodings (Vacant British Light-Welter)

8.30pm - Denton Vassell v Ronnie Heffron (Commonwealth Welter)

9.35pm - David Price v Matt Skelton (British & Common Heavyweight)

10.15pm - Bradley Saunders v Peter McDonagh

10.30pm onwards - Freddie Flintoff v Richard Dawson
Nice one. Cheers.
