Default So, Sky were right then?

Re: Maloney/Price deal.

Weak undercard, terrible main event. Soon to be repeated with Matt Skelton.

Price needs to get off the wastelands and obscurity of the two Franks.

I thought it was all right as a card - the supports were better than the main, but I knew that going in.

I think Sky would love David Price on board. They just dont want all the other weak shows Maloney promotes.

The undercard was very solid, obviously the CW title fight was shit, but the British CW division is nothing short of disgraceful, so not much to be expected to begin with

That's the thing, telling someone: "We want your fighter but we don't want you promoting", is liable to piss people off! And so BoxNation have him. When Price steps up to euro or world level then it's going to be good fights.

Get the **** outta here. This card was 10x the card of what's normally served by Hennessey and Fish eyes. It was a decent card on paper and had a few intriguing fights. Maloney is on his last hand before folding his lot and taking his chips yet last night was decent. Don't go buying 75 tickets for Haye v Chisora

Was a decent card for once, Frank normally serves up dross but Anwar fight and Satchell was ok. Problem is his stable isn't stacked and he's not the best at serving up quality cards on a regular so Sky did right IMO.

Was a good card from top to bottom on paper 3 good 12 round fights on paper (fly, cruiser and light welter eliminator) and a Heavyweight fight that could have finished at any time plus the usual prospects etc.

The card was Sky quality. BN just need to improve on their production and the flow of the event because it just feels long, boring and dragged out. It needs to be more intro, fight, interview, next fight.
