Default Froch v Ward

Does anyone know if this will definately be on Sky Sports? I know that it has been officially confirmed this week as Oct 29th in Atlantic City. Just thought Sky Sports News or Ringside would of mentioned it if it is to be shown by Sky Sports.

It will definitely be on SKY. Until everything is 100% confirmed and sorted they will avoid mentioning too much as to stop any confusion.

No doubts about It being on SKY Sports especially with Froch being with Matchroom as well.

yeah mate, froch will not lose without showing a lot of balls, people and especially fight fans will pay to see that.....i think froch has a decent chance of winning vs ward.

maybe even a rematch with ward could be ppv, there is still a lot of fights for carl if he should continue fighting for another few years, he has earnt his stripes now in boxing and deserves a few quid in the bank from it imo.

damn right froch is everything good about british boxing imho.
i cant see why it would not be ppv with two belts super 6 trophy and the recignition as the best super middle weight in the world and not that it matters but p4p status as well i dont see why it should not be

Gotta be normal sky. Barker,McCloskey and Brook will be all tied up prior to the 29th so its not as if Hearn can put on a uk card on same night as Froch-Ward. And although its gonna be a cracking fight it doesn't mean a whole lot to the casuals im afraid.
