I just sent this:

Dear sir,

I would like to inform you of the huge amount of demand for increased levels of live boxing coverage and the immense public support [in the UK & Ireland] for the return of Bunce's Boxing Hour.

Bunce's Boxing Hour was the only televised weekly boxing magazine programme that truely interacted with boxing fans and offered excellent coverage of grass-roots boxing to the household names. As well as the eclectic mix of guests on the show and issues covered, Steve Bunce and Andy Kerr understand how to relate to us boxing fans and are open and frank with their analysis.

Boxing fans are deeply concerned about the lack of coverage of live boxing due to the recent bad news of the collapse of Setanta, the imminent withdrawal of ITV4 Boxing coverage and the shameless refusal of the BBC to show any boxing.

Please consider the glaring market opportunity for Channel Five to exploit this gap and take a moment to reflect on the huge online community that is already in place to connect with the future home of live boxing and the popular Bunce's Boxing Hour programme.

Below are links to our campaign to bring back Bunce's Boxing Hour and more live boxing

My e-mail's been sent to Channel 5 too. Each grain of sand plays it's part in making a desert.

Just had a quick glance through (seeing if my brother had joined up) and George Groves, Dean Harrison, Ross Purrity, Billy Smith, Emanuel Augustus, George Hillyard, Wayne Alexander and Tyrone Nurse are all there just in the first few pages.

Now I'm sure some of them are fan pages but plenty won't be.

Well done everyone.

I saw Errol Christie, too. This was a brilliant idea.

I keep saying it but you're doing an awesome job, Longcount. The Twitter page created by 'gasman' is gaining some steam as well- any chance you could post it on the site too next to the other links?
