Jim Sport Go: Duco has right to be furious over Parker streamers


Illegal downloads are such a natural part of so many people's lives, but Duco Events are taking a stand against streamers who watched Joseph Parker beat Carlos Takam.

While I was at the fight, my teenage daughter was at home watching it live on one of the Facebook streams. Now, I wouldn't let my kids steal a CD from a music store, or a DVD from a shop, but somehow illegal downloads just seem okay, don't they? Actually there not.

Duco Event director and promoter Dean Lonergan is right to be furious that Joseph Parker's fight was streamed to Facebook.

There are big implications for sport's that rely on pay-per-view broadcast revenues, so Lonergan has a worthy fight on his hands.
