Of course, but you implied above that they will continue to pay 25 times less than Setanta were paying.

Simply not true.

Why pull the whole card?

Surely with Ricky Burns and Paul appleby you could sell plenty of tickets, Burns after all has topped quite a few bills and sold well in Glasgow.

Okay, maybe he won't. Apparently he's just winning purse bids for fighters he doesn't promote?!?!?!?!?

Of course they haven't. That is common sense.

They picked up contracts on the cheap when Setanta went bust.

There would have been no competiton because the other channels had then filled their schedules, ESPN were new.

The contract owners had the option to accept ESPN's offer or take nothing. They were over a barrell.

When they are up for renewal there will be interest from other parties.

We don't know how much they'll pay.

Word is Setanta over paid so chances are ESPN won't pay as much as Setanta, but it certainly won't be on the cheap like now.

****** now has

Chisora vs ***ton
Cleverly vs Mohameddi
Bellew vs Ajitse
Smith vs Anderson
Macklin vs Barker
Rhodes vs Konceny
Brook vs Jennings
Simpson vs Smith

add to that

DeGale for domestic title?
Saunders stepping it up?
Hall return?
Gavin for domestic title?
Mitchell return?
Appleby return?
Broadhutst return?


that would make 5 decent shows.
