Was on premier sports, but the quality was shit and it never seemed to sky + either!! sometimes it started an hour after it claimed and it only gave you half the fights. Hope somebody else picks it up even Boxnation without HD would be great!!!!

You can watch it for free on the WSB youtube channel. I will actually have an interest in this because there are so many known faces from the GB am setup and a few I think will fare well in this format no headguards 5 rounds. Anthony Fowler is my one to watch. I thought he was suited for the pro game very well.

The fighters cant fight more than once every 13 days so it looks like we will have a much better team next week for our 1st home match.

Last nights match vs USA

Fowler looked awesome, his fight starts at about 45min

Cordina & McGoldrick were also impressive.

I did say basically... seems interesting where does that leave Joshua then? If nearly all his teammates have turned over to it and McCracken you have to worry if he will get the best training outside of McCracken's sphere of influence. Will they still all train together in Sheffield? With them jetting off more than ever may not be the best situation

end of the day these lads are getting a guarantee number of fights per year including a wage.

health insurance etc and not to mention the chance to defend their Olympic titles.

the best fighter in the entire Olympic is also joining WSB.

Looking at the video there are a few hundred people there at best.... How are they making money or even getting enough to pay wages? They are giving the tv rights away broadcasting on YT. I see little in the way of sponsorship, though i noticed Italia Thunder is sponsored by Dolce and Gabbana

according to the article on the BBC website a while back, the costs of running the british franchise was going to be underwritten by the AIBA, and they would get this money from TV. if a tv deal doesnt materialise, the franchise may just about complete one season before folding

I suppose providing they all get paid its a bit of a no lose situation for the British lads then. I hated the idea of this at first but I am slowly warming to it in some sort of perverse way.

The problem is though that it needs to generate some heavy revenue fast. TV deals sponsorship and tickets all needs to be raking it in because I expect that this is an extremely costly thing to run. It puts it all under one roof however which make it easy to understand and more attractive for both TV and sponsors.

Im just not sure if they have enough of a following to build a global brand fast enough with the money they must be leaking left right and centre.
