Default Re: Researching Boxing on TV!

The British Broadcasting Corp haven't shown boxing for a long time (other than Olympic). They labelled the sport as 'barbaric'. ESPN (UK) show overseas fights, Sky (though they have cut down their coverage), Boxnation obviously, Primetime, though it's few and far between. Channel 5 have the Maloney fights I believe. Nuts I don't know about. ITV is sketchy, did they show a Khan fight not long back?

In this day and age (Web), there are many outlets to watch fights on, the TV thing has died off....and while we're paying footballers 250,000 a week then Sky will always win with football...it's them that are paying a large percentage of the players wages...boxing doesn't have a hope in hell.

Last fight I paid for on Sky was Hatton - Pac, I've always bought DVDs from traders or used the file sharing site (begins with a Y) the morning after. I don't have Sky anymore because I don't live in England anymore.

Any queries, fire them at me.
