I think Sky just look at viewing figures. Matchroom have Prizefighter which attract all-sorts of non boxing fans, add to this that they also have Carl Froch it's no surprise Sky would want to back matchroom. Getting rid of Hatton in my opinion is a massive mistake Hatton shows are stacked with great fights.

logically thinking Sky's loss should be Box Nation's gain in my opinion. Frank ****** is a business man and if he were to add Hatton boxing events on the channel it would be a smart move for everyone involved and the subscriber numbers would probably be boosted too.

I also think that the Hatton events have been some of the best events shown on UK TV. Of course Channel 5 are also worthy of a mention as I can also see Hatton events going there but I'd prefer to see Hatton's events on box nation. it would add some weight to the channel and then you could maybe see some fights made between ******'s stable and Hatton's stable in the future which would be great for british boxing!

I know what you mean... with the ego's and people involved etc...

but if they did agree terms it'd be a serious coup for the channel and in my opinion be a great move for all concerned.

It'd be good for the boxnation schedule but people like Quigg want to be on sky.

You only have to see Bellew's recent interviews about being back on sky, thinly veiled digs at frank at every opportunity. No doubt he will want to join matchroom.

Boxnation will be a last resort, I really hope someone gives Hatton a chance because he seems to want to put on good cards.

i dont know how much there paying the likes Helliot and Woods were doing there shows mind you ...

Well interestingly ,look at the way eddie was talking about Tony , heaping praise on him so i would say it looks like it could be that way !

The biggest problem is they will not work with each other.
when did Hatton work with Maloney and Hearn?

he said in the last 12 months. Hattons home coming was 4 years ago.

Hearn did nothing for Khan vs Mcloskey the show just has his fighter. Hattons were running the undercard and royaly ****ed it up.
