Default Do you think Klitschko vs Ibragimov will be broadcast in England ??

I cant remember the last time that one of the british broadcasters covered a world heavyweight title fight ... with Klit/Ibrag being the first unification for years do you think Sky or Setanta will cover it ??

I think it will. Without a doubt. Given that Setanta have been pretty agressive in buying up fight rights i can't see a heavyweight unification bout go withiout either Sky or Setanta getting it.

seconds out would have to sell them the rights, which theyve previously said they wouldnt.

Well they'd have to buy the rights from seconds out, and I dont think seconds out will sell them - so how do you figure setanta will show it?

Its a bit like Sky havign the rights but sellingthem to setanta. Seconds out have subscribers who buy credits on the strength of them having the uk rights to the kiltchko fights, so why would they sell them to setanta and undermine their own foray into the PPV world?
