Disappointing to hear but we've come a long way since worrying about Froch not getting on tv...we're getting everything.

I don't think it needs to mean Fury is exclusively linked to PPV fights.

Agreed. He can fight on Channel 5.

If they put Fury on PPV on Primetime by himself it would flop badly.

For ****'s sake, i was hoping this would be on either Boxnation or Sky.

Do Primetime seriously think they're gonna' be able to charge 15 for a fight with no English fighter's, at 5 in the morning? I don't care if it's Pacquiao or not it'll flop

I'm angry at primetime just for poaching the A grade fights we all wanna see when they put **** all back into boxing i.e airing small how shows.

Sky deserve a boycott just for the way they have been losing contracts left right and centre recently. If they wanna get serious bout the sport I suggest scrapping the wages of ****s like Nelson and putting towards cards HBO cards.

Just cancelled sky sports, cant justify paying them 25 per month for a few domestic dust ups. Wont be paying 15 for Primetime either, they do shit to help boxing, their just after after taking our cash and running. Plus its just not PPV quality.

Ill check box-nation out and if they put a decent schedule up before it goes subscription then Ill subscribe. Ill prob be eating loads of kebabs for the next few months and see how things play out.

I was being a little mischievous in that post but its a free market and Sky arn't getting those fights because they arn't offering enough for them. If I was a Sky subscriber and spunking 50+ quid a month I'd be doing just as much moaning at them as I was at Primetime.

If you don't like it don't buy it - it's the only way to make a statement. They couldn't give two ****s about hundreds or thousands or even millions of people complaining if they all buy it in the end. If no one buys it they'll **** off.

Let's see how this box-nation goes and get behind that if it continues to put good boxing on consistently.

I'm going to give Boxnation a go for a year no matter what, just as a (very small!!) show of support.

I'm with you on that one, Gaz.

I'm not a Sky Sports subscriber and BoxNation makes the most sense to me by a country mile as I could't give two shits about anything that SS covers except for boxing.

Pac-Marquez is a great fight so I may be tempted to get it, it's only the time that is a sticking point for me.

Yes but you mugs will buy it, ive said a thousand times on here the problem is not Primetime or any other PPV channel, it's YOU fans.

You vote with your pocket and make it clear PPV flops they simply won't offer it.
