I've no doubt they'll deliver, they have been class so far.

I assume they pick up fights late cos the fee will be smaller but it doesn't look good to potential subscribers when they look at the schedule and there's only 3 shows listed.

I was hoping they'd pick up Harrison/Adams but the way Bunce was talking about him i'd doubt it.

The Quillan/wright bill looks decent but i think Premier may get that.

Hopefully the Lee/Chavez bill will be on.

Sauerland may deliver something, they should be due another show in the next 6 weeks.

Yes it is a sports channel, but between the four main sports channels they air 672 hours of sport per week, I don't think it's too much to ask for 2 hours of live boxing out of that total is it?

To show a 2 hour live show and an episode of Ringside (total of 3 hours) still only equates to less than 0.5 % of their total output being boxing.

Surely boxing deserves more than that?!

Both. Failing that a choice whether to watch a decent quantity of boxing.
