And not before time to.

Though some on here would have you believe that Sky showing the entire undercard is a bad thing for boxing.

Well done to Sky & Hearn but this should have been done 3 year ago.

Looking forward to everyone with Virgin moaning for the next fee years!

You clearly did not understand the perfectly valid point that was made!

4 round mismatch record builders are fine on a dedicated boxing channel or the red button so the hardcore fan can watch it, but you don't want the casual fan to watch shit boxing. Could also make some fans less likley to attend a card.

The Rugby and Spanish football are normally availble via the red button service

Roughly how much of the under card can you see? For example if the show is due to start on Sky Sports 1 at say 9pm, when can you access the undercard, from 8pm?

7-9 on the red button then normal SS1 from 9 mate.
The tickets say the card starts at 6pm so there'll only be 2 no mark fights not shown I'm guessing.

I haven't seen Ringside yet but I suspect it would be the whole card. The whole card is being filmed anyway so why not broadcast it? This seems a move to counter Boxnation showing full cards and a sensible one from all involved.
