Default Re: This Coldwell TV thing

I wish Coldwell had more exposure because you can tell he's got some really good ideas about boxing, how it should be presented and it's future. I think that with a better stable and more funding, they could make a really good go of it, so hopefully they'll get that soon. I don't sense that Coldwell is out to make money as absolute priority at any cost, I think he wants to do the right things by the fans and the fighters, and as a fan, that impresses me a lot.

Maybe I'm wrong about this, but I think if Coldwell had, say, the Channel 5 contract and Hennessy's stable, I think he'd have done a better job of it than Mick has, for both the fighters and the fans. I think he'd have done a better job with Hatton's stable than Hatton has too. Maloney doesn't have an easy job with Price, because of the lack of contract, but I wish Coldwell has a real diamond like Price on his books and if he did have, I think he'd have done as well as Maloney has in building Price's profile. Coldwell and Hearn are the two promoters who really give off the right signals, so hopefully Coldwell can build his stable and get on Sky or find another TV deal somewhere. I think he deserves a chance, at the very least.

I like Nafflad26. In all honestly boxing fans are more interested in the Tv situation than fans of other sports because it is broadcast on so many channels and sometimes not broadcast at all. This is not a situation that mainstream sports fans have to deal with. As far as I am concerned good luck to you Nafflad26, you take way too much stick for my liking.

I think Coldwell will get a SKY deal eventually. I think he's broadcasting Matt Hatton's IBO fight in Sarf Efrica too.

i think he would be good if he dint constantly post threads on the same thing . He was banned for it before under another name ,hes been found out and when i confronted him about it he still continues to spam the board ...

i like the board and appreciate folk will ask tv questions,but see when its the same person with the same question they bring it on them self.

I have stopped tv threads recently. I do know more about boxing than just tv thread stuff.

Nafflad and Alba. I think if I met you both you would be two top guys. There's nothing wrong with a bit of banter. Good luck to you both.

Take it most of your questions will be from the radio times?

I Scene in article earlier that was saying that Degale's next fight is going to be on WealthTv, what is going on there? Does that mean it's on C5 as well or he won't feature on terrestrial?

Wealth TV is an American channel that shows a lot of boxing, including Hennessy's fights.
