I see skelton winning this fight easily. Rogan was always going to get one of the Brit heavies after beating Audley, but to be hones Audley has got nothing left these days, his negative attitude, age and all round laziness make him a complete joke. He is a name and nothing more. Skelton however can still box well and I see him stopping Rogan late

Not so sure mate, from what I gathered from Bunces show yesterday Khan definitely isn't on that bill and dont think Enzo is. I think the selling point of the show will be the Gavin, DeGale and BJ Saunders, which is pretty shitty to be fair, they'll be in 4 rounders ffs.

The Bendall/McDermott and Bell/Broadhurst fights to be fair to ****** are atleast competetive fights, but theyre hardly massive names.

Makes sense this fight...I think Skelton will win, if he puts his shots together right he can get a stoppage too. Credit to Rogan for hanging touch after a wobbly second round against Audley, but Audley was so negative it was more about what he did wrong than Rogan did right.

Setanta need to have ITV and Sky (plus the Beeb, if they ever grow a pair and stop dumbing down) in the mix. A monopoly is never a good thing. All we truly need is a bit of network responsibility towards the sport, allowing inter-network bouts is good for boxers, boxing will benefit, TV networks will also. Setanta talk a good fight, with Buncey using all types of people on his show, that lead needs to be followed, there no point in a talking heads show that crosses the promotional line if none of the fights/fighters ever cross over.

Boxing needs to smarten up, the cross-promotional fights that matter are rarely happening, we have a split British boxing scene, almost divisional, that split needs to bridged.

TV execs/promoters please read

Its got "distance fight" written all over it.

Vasquez-Marquez it is not, but could be a decent close scrap.

of course its all about the money!(nowt wrong wae that) matt skelton is about 40 and has had a remarkable career. he was a world champion kickboxer(correct me if im wrong?) and he also fought in pride fc in front of 50000 japanese mma fans,then in his mid thirties started boxing and won the british hw title,commonwealth +euro hw title + fought for a world title!! hats off to the man!!!
