Quite right. I've emailed Sky about it and suggest that anyone who hasn't already done so starts typing.

Feel a little bit better after getting that off my chest!!!! I urge everyone to email sky and give them a piece of thier mind.

Enough people do it then they will have to take note. Providing everyone boycotts it.

He needs to generate cash for his dwindling empire and Khan is his only real star on the books (Arthur still can't sell out in Edinburgh, Macca's a non-entity and Mitchell's a euro-level guy waiting to step up).

Khan is the breadwinner that Joe used to be, but he can't face that same level of competition because he will get trashed and the money train is OVAH! - so really, ******'s ****ed. He can't push his boy to world-level because all the current titlists will hand him his arse, so he has to keep the money coming in, keep the train on the rails until a he can have the title made vacant and negotiate Khan that way.

From that point on, Khan will not face any good opponent in their prime ever again.
Totally agree.

If you go back five years, he had Hatton, Calzaghe and plenty of others packing out arena's up and down the country for peanuts whilst he was making a shit load of money.

Now those guys have realised that they are indeed world class and can make decent money elsewhere on a bigger stage, he is ****ed. Because he refuses to 'take a punt' on someone, preferring to pad them out with bums and having them lose their sharpness before being exposed at the highest level.

I didn't fork out for Hatton-Lazcano, which I thought was just about the nadir of PPV on Sky, so I ain't paying for this puddle of piss which brings things to unimagined depths of awfulness.

****** and SKY can go **** themselves.

The Khan fight is an absolute joke, his opponents a 19-0 padded record, his last fight was against 10-0 fighter and he got away with a SD win. Has anyone got any knowledge of the Prescott, I know I sure as f### don't.
