Default Re: Anyone think that HBO or Showtime will pick up Froch v Kessler?!

Hearn and Sauerland will have a good relationship with the top boy at HBO. Forgotten his name, the guy who helped make the super six. Anyone?

Dont wanna see Froch get beat up vs Ward again. Would rather see him step up to 175 and fight Pascal,Dawson, Cleverly, Shumenov, Cloud. Or stay at 168 and fight Golovkin, Chavez Jnr or the domestic opponents when ready Groves or DeGale. All exciting fights.

I know the MC doesn't make the fight but it builds it up nicely and the one matchroom use John Mcdonald isn't good at building a big fight up.

Also if HBO or Showtime pick it up are we in for a 2am start?
Next time you have the urge to start a tv thread just have a wank.

Tbf John McDonald did a decent job at the Bute fight but the crowd was rocking anyway from Sugar Ray doing his ringwalk then Froch coming out to 'No Easy Way Out' was class.

giving the CL being on the same eve, i think the 2 AM start is almost a certain if HBO has interest.

Champs League is a 6pm KO. Finished by 8:00pm leading into a Boxing PPV.

It will be an 11am start. Perfect for British, German and Danish TV which trumps what HBO pay. Same as Haye vs Klitscko.

That would be a great plan if the football wasn't kicking off at 7:45pm
