Taxi !!!!!!!!!!!

If boxnation manage to stay intact and afloat it should make for quality TV alongside Sky.
Somehow I don't see it happening.

Will this include Mayweather/Cotto? Presumably GB are the main guys promoting that.

Kirkland/Molina's on the Morales/Garcia undercard so that'll deffo be shown.

Ortiz/Berto hasn't being officially rescheduled yet (probably June 30th) but when it is you'd expect them to show it.

I agree. All sky need to do is get the best from BoxNation, that means Richard Keys.

BoxNation isn't good for British boxing. It's good for a small group of fans and Frank. If it was free it'd be good for boxing because it'd allow casual fans to see good level boxing from places like Germany that they wouldn't otherwise see. As it's a subscription channel, the only people it benefits are hardcore boxing fans who would probably watch the fight anyway. It just makes it easier for them.

But yeah, this idea that BoxNation is good for British boxing is wrong. If it was free, yes, but the cost limits its exposure too much.

That said, I want to see the channel do well. I hope it can progress.

Unlucky BN.

I want all the big fights and big cards on Sky. BN would only butcher them.

I'll pay 10 for BN if they keep giving a domestic card a week and international fights we woudln't get otherwise i.e. Top Rank, Saureland etc

Boxnation as a concept can only ever attract a small loyal fanbase because Boxing has become a niche sport but the emergence of it has made Sky get its act together which has now brought more Boxing to more people.

Don't see Sky showing it. BN might but it sounds like the whole presenting crew will be in Germany for Chisora so I have my doubts they'll get it. Having said that, this Sky deal makes it look very hard for them to get 2 cards a week so not sure they can just pass up on a show like this
