Germany is a far more affluent place right now than here. I put the recession down to low attendances in comparison to Germany. Their football grounds are loaded too!
Over here ITV can't/wont go back into boxing, they have little cash to spare because advertisement revenue fell drastically. Channel 5 is our best hope, I really hope they carry it on and expand. Hennesey is the wrong man to make that happen though, hopefully Hatton can go there and help build cards.
