Everyone should write in and complain.

The cards they are showing are good quality, but I still want to see more boxing considering the stupid prices they charge.

You aren't paying for boxing, the high price is for football solely, everything else is just sky throwing in extras including F1.
You get enough boxing fans watching to make them as attractive to advertisers and a credible revenue stream (a la football)then SKY will bid and get every card available.

This is never going to happen, not enough boxing fans interested in watching it on the TV anymore. IF Ricky and Khan both went to Ch5 and made a point of the mass audiences interest then maybe but that hope has now diminished.

He looks like Eddie Hearn's child. And also talks like he might be related to the man with the amount of love he gives him.

I am a Sky subscriber and cannot believe the lack of cards being shown at the moment I am a cunt's hair away from cancelling my subscription. how the **** can they justify not having any live action for 2 or sometimes 3 weeks at a time. I have been a subscriber to sky for some time now and the schedule has never been this thin, where has all the domestic and international action gone.

Despite this they still have Ringside on EVERY single week wether there is live action that coming weekend or not. Now in my opinion Ringside is an ok show but its a supplementary programme, in the respect that it should supplement Sky's boxing output by reviewing the previous weeks fights and previewing the coming weeks fight, basically build up and reaction.

But whats the point in having a supplementary magazine style programme when there is no ****ing boxing for it to supplement! If sky has budget issues then I would rather have a card (any card really) and no ringside for the week.

I mean how the **** can they justify refusing to shell out for any domestic or international boxing but Adam Smith can find the money to send himself and his chum (and a whole camera and sound crew) out to Miami to speak to David Haye, or Johnny to the Philippines to speak to Amir Kahn or both of them to spain (or somewhere hot, can't remember where) to chat to Tennis player and new found friend of the pair Andy Murray.

Its the arrogance of the whole thing thats really got to me, its like they think they are that incredible at broadcasting that we the fans would rather watch them buffing there own bell ends on Ringside every week or 8 or 9 commentators and pundits covering one show than the sport we love on a regular basis.

Imagine the uproar if Sky started doing this with their football coverage. I would think almost every fan of every sport in the world would agree that actually watching their sport is far more important to them than watching pundits talk about it.

Now whats that boxnation number?
This thread is pretty redundant after the news of Sky's Golden Boy deal, come back Adam Smith all is forgiven!
