View Full Version : What dumb fight slogans do you think marketing could have/should use for fights?

"The Rumble in the Jungle". "The Thrilla in Manilla." "No Excuses." The list of dumb marketing names goes on, and even though the aforementioned Thrilla actually took place outside Manilla, did it really matter?

What made me think of this was reading an article on Amir Khan - he's on the UK TV station ITV this Saturday night on the undercard of Joe Calzaghe's tune-up bout. How long before he gets a name for himself, goes into a match with a grudge and some newspaper hack comes up with the headline "The Wrath of Khan"? For all I know, it's probably already happened.

So... slogans. What slogans could have taken place (Tyson-Holyfield II - "You won't believe your ears"???) and what slogans should take place for future bouts?

"Unfinished Business" has been used to death...and it may be used on the Hopkins-Taylor II card...

I remember at Hatton bill being called "Lords of the ring", which is really bad.

Sorry... the idea is not to quote slogans that they've already had, but to come up with your own. Geeeeeeez...

Thrilla in Manila, technically was in Quezon City. But that's like Manhatton and the Bronx. It's still New York City. And Quezon City is in Manila. Manila is just subdivided into different cities. There is a Manila section but it grew so large that it swallowed other "cities".

Hatton vs Mayweather would be called something gay like "the fast and the furious".

Corey Spinks should move up to Middleweight and challenge Bernard Hopkins. (After this whole middleweight excitement recently Hopkins can settle back down to calling out welterweights... LOL!...)

Then it could be called:

1500m race.

LOL!... :D

Now that the fight has passed, it would be Winky Vs Trinidad

The Wright choice, The Wright challenge

This was definitely not the right choice fight for Tito
