Does anyone know if there are any bars taking advantage of the 24hr laws by showing the Big Fight Sunday morning. The first round bell is expected to ring around 4.30!

Why not? Pubs have to get people in, especially since the smoking ban. And with people's inconsiderate behaviour supposedly not harming anyone, what's the problem? Or do you just hate adults?

I would use a smiley here, but I hate them.

Well there won't be any kids there if a local pub is showing it Thumbsup

If Ricky Hatton wins this maybe we could let off a few fireworks ?
Maybe around 0500-0530 ! Rolleyes


One loud voice can make a difference !

Not that I'll be watching but I'm assuming it's on Sky rather than normal telly so I'd imagine there's a market for opening the pub early - they often do it for other sporting events like rugby and football don't they?

Don't think a 24 hour licence or lack thereof necessarily makes a difference if you're not serving booze and I'm not sure how many people would want a drink at 4.30am unless they've been out all night already...
