If its ppv it shouldn't count, simple as that.

Somebody should tweet Eddie about it.

You don't even need to do that. On the night of the PPV just show part of the undercard live on sky sports. Have someone like Frampton-Quigg head the undercard and there you go date is filled. Either that or ou show the Bute fight or another overseas fight after ppv has finished

Wouldn't Sky just buy the Bute card if they wanted it? Why involve Hearn and let him off the hook over his dates.

Because making Frampton-Quigg is that simple!

I do think sky should encourage Eddie to co-promote more often, it's criminal how Coldwell hasn't got a deal.

Agree, i'd rather see say a similar size show to the old friday fight nights ie main event British/European maybe even Commonwealth title fight involving one of eddies boys and the undercard provided by Coldwell and maybe including one of Eddies guys in a keep busy fight or something.

please replace prizefighters with this!

I think Sky may well be regretting the one promoter deal.

Really? I am pretty sure Kessler is fairly well known, as for Froch, all I can say is a lot of my friends who are casual followers at best know who he is and have actually asked me about this fight and if I am going etc.

I think it'll sell pretty well, not record breaking numbers but enough for everyone to get paid and the event to be considered a relative success.

I agree, especially with the full Sky hype machine behind it.

Hearns and Sky can **** off.

Put it on normal Sky Sports so everyone can see it instead of ripping the fans off. If it does go on Sky, as much as I like Froch, I hope the fight flops and they make a big fat loss on it.
