Default Brit forum campaign to US promoters: SHOW US YOUR FIGHTS!!!

I am fed up of having to wake up at 4 in the morning and watching a crappy illegal stream which cuts out every 30 secs to see major title fights from the US.

We have tried going to the tv companies and it has not worked. When Bob Arum was on the Steve Bunce show last week he seemed genuinely surprised the Cotto fight was not being shown in the UK.

Below is a list of ways to contact the major US promoters (please add any further ways you can find).

send them a message and let them know that you want to see there fight but cannot as you live in the UK. That you will have to continue to download these fights illegally for free if no alternative option is put in place.

RICHARD SHAEFER IS ON THE BUNCE SHOW TONIGHT. BOMBARD THEM WITH TEXTS AND EMAILS ABOUT WANTING TO SEE THERE FIGHTS.

Here are the contact details:0207 224 200. Text 07786 200 949 and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Do you really think this will do anything..?

Your only producing more evidence that boxing is no longer ingrained into culture.

Its just a sport now..! and a badly run sport.

I say to the promoters as I said to boxing fans who have joined this campaign, I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many months of struggle and suffering.
You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival. Let that be realized. No survival for the British boxing fans, no survival for all that British Boxing fans have stood for, no survival for the urge, the impulse of the ages, that mankind shall move forward toward his goal.

I take up my task in buoyancy and hope. I feel sure that our cause will not be suffered to fail among men. I feel entitled at this juncture, at this time, to claim the aid of all and to say, "Come then, let us go forward together with our united strength."

They don't even care, or read half the e-mails.

Not sure how it's illegal to download them if essentially no-one owns the rights in the UK. I guess rights reisde with the host promoter, but then they aren't losing out. Possibly illegal from the point of view of the broadcaster as you're watching their show, but do they care if you're outside where they broadcast?

Not sure really what your point is here, are you saying Bob Arum doesn't even try to sell international rights for his fights. Because I'm pretty sure he does.

Your messaging the wrong people, do you think us promoters aren't selling their fight to the uk? Message sky, primtime, espn even the bbc if you've got nothing else to do.

They could be doing legal streams of all their fights for people outside of the US. Even HBO and Showtime could allow us to sign up online to watch fights.

It's crazy to be calling out to want to pay for something, and nobody is willing to sell it.

I'd guess the problem for Showtime and HBO is could they be arsed setting streams up for the money it would generate? We're not exactly big business esp. at 4am.

So let people watch a replay the next day too, or for the following week. Have people sign up for the year, loads would go for that. You could throw in some of their back catalog of fights, legendary nights, that sort of thing, sweeten the deal.

I'm sure they could do something that would help us see fights either next day or on the day live. It's sad times...i'm a big Cotto fan...but the other night i thought to myself at 3 ish i can't be asked with this shit link and i'm tired and it's gonna be poxy quality. Next morning at 10 i watched the fight decent quality. Shame i didn't see it live...
