Duco pissing into a hurricane

This is what happens when you align yourself with the big, but old and decrepit gorrilla in the room…you get shanked.

When you play with old and outdated monopolies you get bitten.

Catch up came for Sky and Duco on Saturday night. People are sick and tried of having their pockets raped.

Duco is talking tough and Sky is looking to make an example of bootleg boxing broadcasters:

Joseph Parker’s boxing promoter says he’s looking at his options after an illegal live stream was viewed by thousands for free on Facebook.

A page on the social media network streamed the match for free, while Sky TV’s Arena channel charged $49.99 for the pay-per-view event.

New Zealand heavyweight Parker won the International Boxing Federation (IBF) eliminator against the France-based Cameroon fighter Carlos Takam by a unanimous points decision over 12 rounds.

Duco Events will be working with Sky TV to find out who streamed the fight without permission, Duco co-owner Dean Lonergan said.  

“If you take 21,000 by $49.95, that’s close to a million dollars,” Lonergan said.

“When we find out who they are, there’ll be pending legal action so there’s not a lot we can say at the moment.”

“I’m talking extensively with our business partner Sky TV on this, it’s an ongoing issue for them but there will be legal action being pursued.”

Sky TV is making no comment on the incident other than to say it constantly monitors illegal streaming.

I bet if they’d offered a streaming licence at a reasonable rate they’d get more than 21,000 subscribers for that one fight and may even surpass the ticket sales at the venue and the Sky subscriptions.

The world has changed and Duco are crying like little babies over it. That just shows their own arrogance.

Next fight I’ll predict even more will stream it.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
