Sky do what they always do best keep ****** fighters happy and since they resigned ****** they have little or no big fights from the US. If they do it is as part of a Khan or Hatton PPV. Sky has forgoten all about boxing for years you would of thought when Setanta was about that Sky would get more better quaility fights because they are covering boxing years but no they got **** all. That alone shows they gave up on boxing.
Setanta was paying up to 75% more than the market value for the fights... What do you think Sky should have done? Why do you think Sky is so suceessful as a business?

It's obviously someone taking the piss but it's still funny to think Sky published that and nothing mentioned on here (as of yet).

You surely don't expect Dan to oblige? It's always interesting seeing a difference in opinion on here anyway. I see your point about Sky previously being very good but, for me, that doesn't make up for the present situation- the underacrd fiasco for the Kotelnik-Khan fight was completely stupid as well, IMO.

Excuse my ignorance Losfer, what happened for the kahn-kotelnik fight, what was the underrcard fiasco on the Sky coverage? Was in the MEN so didnt pick up on things...

They televised all of the mismatches involving the 'Olympians' live as well as Small-Hall but never showed Brook-Lomax, Enzo-Lebedev or the Mitchell fight. Bearing in mind they had a scheduled hour left of coverage, they never even broadcasted delayed coverage or highlights of any of the fights I mentioned either. It was a disgrace, IMO. I was left feeling a tad shortchanged- at least ****** put the entire fights on youtube a few days afterwards, though.

Yeah, I'm pleased to see ****** putting the fights on there, not just interviews, that's great. I don't understand why Sky wouldn't show those fights?? I remember on the night being surprised to see Brook on so early. I thought he'd go last before Khan. That said, it was a good bit of prime time coverage for the Olympians which will help build them up.

just posted this comment , about their lack of boxing from america

i think sky do a fairly good job with their coverage of domestic boxing. some of the undercards can be poor though. its their us coverage that has let them down badly in the last year or two. i think im right in saying that the mayweather v marquez fight will be the first us fight shown live on sky sports since mosley v moyorga last september. thats not counting the hatton ppv's or de la hoya v pac. we got a couple of delayed showings in june which were better than nothing being shown. and people might say setanta had alot of fights. but there was some they did not show like williams v wright , the lightweight tournament in april and there is more as well. to only get 2 live us fights a year on normal sky is a disgrace. we should be getting most of the top rank and golden boy stuff live. or at the very least delayed next day coverage like sky used to do 4 or 5 years ago. in this day and age a week is too long to be waiting for a delayed showing. 4 or 5 bills a year inc the couple of american ppv's does not constitute regular american coverage for me. i think most would agree that sky's coverage of us fights was very good 4 or 5 years ago. and boxing fans want it to get back to that level where we were getting us action every 2 or 3 weeks at least and most of the american bills were screened. we need alot more us fights than 3 or 4 a year.
