The fight, sponsored by Internet company 9 Net Avenue, and Kremlyovskaya, a Russian vodka, will be televised on PPV. Foreman will earn $10M for the bout, while Holmes will earn $4M. Holmes, when asked if needed the money: "Everybody needs money" (N.Y. TIMES, 7/16). In N.Y., Wallace Matthews writes on the bout under the header, "The Joke Has Gotten Old." Citing the advanced age and increased risk for the fighters, Matthews notes, "Grumpy Old Men is funny. Punchy Old Men is not" (N.Y. POST, 7/16).
