That is the big fight- Post Fight Analysis by Sky and they had the biggest stars in UK boxing at the time on the panel dressed in tuxedos to cover it.



Hoya/Felix was a huge fight in the UK and is in the record books as one of the biggest fights of all time.. I remember the buzz at the time, maybe you dont.
Oh come on, Trinidad and De La Hoya was a big fight for the hardcore fan in the UK. The fights in the 80s involving Hagler, Tommy et al were big terrestrial shows. Hagler/Leonard was shown in prime time on a Tuesday evening, on ITV, to an audience that may of been near 10 Million. Trinidad/De La Hoya was shown on SKY to a Million tops (on the Saturday SKY Sports repeat)...
