Default Where were Setanta for the Weigh-in?!?!?

With all the money they've poured into this fight, with multiple channels, a 24 hr sports news channel and personnel on the scene why the hell was this not shown??!!!!?!!!!! You'd think they'd be trying to max the exposure. Very disappointed. I actually watched it by chance on Sky ch 427 (Fight Network) which amongst other things shows "Womens Extreme Wrestling". So the commentary wasn't great, but if this obscure channel could be bothered to show the weigh-in why the hell couldn't Setanta?!?!?

Face facts guys, Setanta is the new home of boxing but it doesnt have SKY's massive budget, so they need to cut corners where possible.

Get used to it!

I have little faith in setanta, I'm watching on freeview and concerned about this switch to Channel 38 at 3am malarkey.

Last time I was supposed to do that I got the standard top-up TV holding screen and **** all else I went to bed as it wasn't a fight I was really bothered about.

I've rang setanta customer services to tell them and to make sure I don't need to do anything else, but the guy just said if it happens this time just rescan your box just before the fight , jesus H christ how unclever and inconvenient is that ?

I can just see me rescanning the box at 3am with shite all effect, I hope not though, fingers crossed.

Unfortunately for us, broadcasting anything at all costs a lot of money. It's not just a case of giving Steve Bunce a handycam and asking him to cover it for free.
However, I do think they could have made more of an effort for this massive fight.
