Here's the HBO (USA) promo for Klitschko vs Haye:
Here's the Sky Box Office (UK) Klitschko vs Haye teaser promo:
And here's the cold, distant RTL (Germany) version:
So that's how three markets are selling the fight to their TV audiences. Note that only in the UK is this pay-per-view.
What's your favorite?
The HBO promo seems too much like it's trying to sell to me, like they feel they have to convince people to tune in to the first Wladimir Klitschko fight on HBO since 2008, as if they know and acknowledge that they stopped airing his fights for a reason, although said reason has yet to stop them from airing, say, Andre Berto fights or whatever.
The Sky promo goes too corny for me with the Rocky meat-punching. David Haye is a lot of things, but a lovable, working class underdog he is not. That's my least favorite thing about the Rocky sequels, besides the fact that they all suck (yes I know it's "awesome" with Mr. T and the Russians, blah blah, I don't like Transformers either). People forgot what the Rocky Balboa character was and was supposed to be, including Stallone, who then dug it back up for the last movie because his career had gone to the s***house.
The German promo is SO SERIOUS, almost comically so. KABOOM! Wladimir has punched a bag or his own hand. Take THAT, Klitschko poster!
I guess my favorite is the German promo. KABOOM!
Klitschko vs Haye is live at 4:45 EDT on HBO and RTL, and 3:00 EDT on Sky Box Office, Polsat, and Main Event in Australia with an undercard that features Ola Afolabi and Ashley Sexton.
