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.
maybe now they have lost some of the football to setanta, they can spend a little more money on boxing. but they'll probably go and spend the money on bulgarian ladies snooker or somethin...

Sky has gft enough money invested boxing, I would just like to see them spend it more wisely.

Have no more than four top notch British shows a year, the rest should be spent on showing excellent quality international boxing.

If you want to get new fans intrested in the sport, you cannot lie. For example Ian Napa and Jason Booth may be honest hard working pros, but neither is ever going to set the world alight, they should not be headlining a boxing show on SKY.

If SKY helps to create international boxing stars, it will help local British shows because more people will want to go and see live fights, and that will help the likes of Napa and Booth rightly earn more money.
