Isn't freedom of speech great?

How long was the ban?

It was a 3 day ban. The equivalent of the headmaster making you face the wall at lunchtime and think about what youve done....

I'm inclined to agree with the calculated loss argument but the flipside is that this is all conjecture. Do we actually have evidence that ITV would have offered anything at all? Hate to say it but we could be unduly bashing Mick here as regards the TV deals. I maintain he should have dug his heels in about the venue though. He really dropped a bollock there

Pretty sure it was said at the time (taylor fight) that he'd turned down a 'lowball' offer of 100k. We all assumed that was sky.

""It's not easy with british television, but we have reached an agreement we are very happy with", Hennesy says and adds: "We can feel that Carl is about to be a household name and he deserves it. Carl is the best of the 3 british world champions today."

Hennesy gives Haye credit but doesn't understand Amir Khan. He goes on to add that: "Carl is the best of the three of them. He's the most complete fighter, he's got the brains, physics, toughness, will and (silky-smooth......) skills. He has it all

Why slag off other british champions for?

And NO..... Froch is actually the worst of the bunch! if Hennessy could get away with what Frank ****** did with Khan, but do it to Froch instead.... he would have done.
Henessy just isn't anything as close as a good promoter as ******. Recent events prove this, I mean you would think with Froch being an established world champion he would get home advantage at least? let alone being bullied around the negotiation table to such an extent that british fight fans have now lost thoasnad of pounds in ticket money just so the other guy gets home advantage!

Barker and Murray should also leave him if they actually want their careers to progress?

Who the **** are you? Zak Dingle? The primetime coverage was a disgrace,a shambles, an absolute joke. Just because one country bumpkin out in the sticks somehow manages to see the fight doesnt mean they can be relied upon to provide a service to an entire country.You probably still point at aeroplanes (the big metal bird in the sky) when they pass over your village you slack-jawed yokel.
Out in the sticks? Salford?

Anyone with half a brain could have ordered and watched it online. Sounds like you're the one struggling to keep up.

By the way, you are an utter twat.

Didn't he call one off "derisory" as well, or was that for the Dirrell fight?

Maybe theres a chance that Hennessy didnt have enough faith in Froch to take a multi-fight deal with sky... thus wanting to take the big bucks for a 1 fight deal?

just to point out the mess up with the phone lines and payments was skys fault not primetime.

we need to face facts, if you want to be a boxing fan in the future get used to PPV on tv like primetime or the web. Boxing just doesnt work on subscription or terrestrial.

as long as its at a reasonable rate im not fussed. if you dont wanna watch it dont pay. simple as.
