Frank might want to prevent Matchroom fighters getting publicity because they are rivals. He has something to gain from Matchroom fighters not becoming more popular. The leas popular Matchroom shows are, the better for him.

What does Hearn gain from missing out on free exposure? Nothing.

Em, it means his guys are providing content for a channel that rivals the one he's signed to?

This isn't rocket science.

That don't make any sense though, surely having free exposure on any platform is a good thing?

From what I have read, it seems like Eddie is being a bit slimey.

If it is Eddie then he is cutting his nose off despite his face, Boxnation's viewers are the hardcore boxing fans, nothing wrong with having his fighters kept in their thoughts, then again this is a man that invented Prizefighter for the casual's so **** him.

A more feasible explanation would be that Frank doesn't want Bunce to promote Matchroom fighters.
Frank at today's press conference "This card is taking place in primetime- not in the middle of the night". Obvious dig at Sky/Matchroom's forthcoming cards.

Yeh from what I can make out, Eddie has said no to a few of his fighters going on Bunce's show, but since he wasn't asked specifically about Bellew going on there, he is making out like he might not have had a problem with it.

Also, Bellew probably wouldn't want to go on BN, so Eddie probably didn't have to say much. Can we stop treating Tony as the source of all truth. He''s no more reliable a source than anyone else.

I thought it was about the BBC radio show? If I'm wrong with that, my apologies, I must have misread.

I could have misread it. I thought the BBC show thing only came in as an aside, that Bellew had let Bunce down at the last minute. Maybe I got off track.

Twitter is getting worse and worse for this kind of thing, i find it funny when the fighter/pundit/promoter in question reacts to insults by random followers they dont even know.

Hearn or Matchroom (one of them) have banned their fighters from going on Boxnation from Day one. It is childish and unnecessary but Bunce is right in what he has said here, its the truth.

Yeah, I'm not sure either. I was having a look at Hearn's Twitter earlier and I thought someone had mentioned the BBC shows, so I assumed it was that. **** knows whats happening
