    Yeah it seems Premier sports have taken over the channel and the old business that ran it closed. Premier own freesports too and have been doing a few cards on there for a year or so

    Frank used to live down the road from me and we would always talk when we ran into eachother. I have to say he was always friendly and polite to me and my family. He was an old man when I knew him though. Can only take people as you find them.

    I'm sure he's alright, I was on about Kenneth Noye though, he was a nasty piece of work, the exact type of person who people make excuses for with comments like "that's just how it was". No, it's just how they were, c***s, pardon my French!

    If there's anyone to rival the Sky commentary team for worst commentators it would be him. He is awful.

    Give Flores his due, he works hard. In last year’s WBSS he was doing the announcing, commentary and interviewing, Jack of all Trades.
    Maybe Bellew could do the same, and save Sky some money!

    He does work hard and he does well to not leave much silence during the broadcast but I do think he is a pretty lousy commentator all the same. He might make for an OK co-commentator alongside a proper analyst

    I always think he sounds like the late Howard Cosell, with his measured delivery.
    How about him co-commentating with Ronald MacIntosh!

    Remember to use the word allegedly before any Warden criticism as it may save you from handing over all your hard earned in court.

    Yeah it seems like Premier have had the channel off the liquidators for presumably pennies, think old Franky is long gone now. His boy was quoted in the initial press release but I’d be surprised if he sticks around.

    Freesports now show Boxnation cards on delay.

    The Hobson cards remain on Freesports.

    Set the record button for the scheduled Ugas fight, live, and ended up with Mike Conlan followed by Terry Flanagan!!!
    B/N’s website have no live shows listed and nothing on Freesports.
