But yeah, this idea that BoxNation is good for British boxing is wrong. If it was free, yes, but the cost limits its exposure too much.

That said, I want to see the channel do well. I hope it can progress.
Boxnation as a concept can only ever attract a small loyal fanbase because Boxing has become a niche sport but the emergence of it has made Sky get its act together which has now brought more Boxing to more people.
