    Yesterday was Ramadan, and most Irish are Muslim. So they figured they'd move it to suit the Irish. Very good of them to do so.

    I'm glad it wasn't on yesterday because I would have been watching Wilder/Stiverne instead.

    Probably to capture the NFL playoff audience on a Sunday night. Brilliant really.

    They want to show that Connor can fill a football stadium by going head to head with the NFL and still getting 100 million viewers tonight.

    It's Monday afternoon here in NZ which is a bit odd to be watching fights but it worked out well considering it's a local holiday today.

    Is this the first time it's happened?

    Who knows?

    Ireland is about five hours ahead of Boston. It will be 4-5 AM in Ireland when Conor fights.

    New England-Indianapolis football is going on in Forborough right now. Doesn't look like it is hurting attendance (leaves room for a bunch of Irish).
