Glad to hear it. Now they've wasted marketing time and they wonder why boxing doesn't get popular. ITV best let people know this is on. It's got a serious bill. They got three major 12 rounders to get through on ITV1!

I always prefer these sorts things on SKY, they are much more professional in their presentation, ITV always seems half-hearted about boxing.

ITV are poor at absolutely everything they do.

I only saw the first advert for the boxing this weekend, so I do agree that ITV need to start advertising the boxing more. I wonder if this would have to come out of ITV's pocket or whether ****** would have to pay for it.

the more ITV advertise the shows, the more viewers they can attract and the more they can charge for other companies to advertise during the shows - remember, they show one 30 second advert between practically every round, and then there are the full 2 minutes worth of ads between fights. that must bring in a lot of cash prime time especially before/during/after the main event!

No ITV was for selling their golden goose that gave them 8 million plus viewers on a Saturday night...

If we live a free enterprise economy, you cannot blame SKY for taking advantage of ITV's ineptness.

True.

The other channels have also played their roles in the demise of boxing. If setanta can challenge sky and its only just expanding then why couldnt the traditional analogue channels do it years ago.

just think though, we'd still be faffing around with tin pot football leagues if sky hadnt have pumped money into the game. Regardless. ITV want it? Maybe, although hasnt the BBC's head of programming or something (the one that axed boxing from the beeb) gone to ITV!?! So im not sure how long they'll want it for! Surprised Mr ****** hasnt gone for a PPV channel on sky. £5 a month or something.

considering sky has 4 PPV sports channels and the fact they tie up eurosport to a tv package, when in fact it is meant to be a free channel means there budget for boxing should be much greater than it is and there programme controller should have been much harder and stricter with ****** when he was with there network.

sky do, do quantity , but they have severly cut back on quality.

if they spent a 1/ 50th of there football budget on boxing it would have been great for us spectators.

i mean with 100 plus games a season , is there really a need for sky to spend 500k per game on say wigan v blackburn or scunthorpe v the kings head 3rd team.
