Default Re: Realistic undercard for Froch-Kessler 2

Thinking about it now lads...

The CL final will be on either Sky Sports 1 or 2.

KO is 19:45-21:30 for ex + trophy celebration etc bring programme time to say 10.15

Eddie won't let it clash, therefore cannot be on normal SS2 at the same time - (Davies says 11) - never going to happen as it'll be a big card & will want exposure..

So either the programme for Froch-Kessler will start at 10.15/10.30 + build up, 3 undercard fights or could be more...therefore probably minimum time would be at 1am start time (most likely)

Or..

It's on Sky PPV & clashes with the final - ring walk @ 11 - with lots of casual fans missing out as the public say football > boxing. This would lose huge revenue & a waste of time for Barney Francis & Adam Smith...

Or..

Sky PPV at for ex 1am after final which would also lose interest & revenue of the casual fan therefore I think the first is most likely! BOOM!
