    Surely the worst card ever served up on SKY.
    Adverts every 10 mins(Voltarol).
    A bloody D.J
    And come 10pm they have ran out of ideas so they put up Ivan Drago vs Tony Drago at prime time.
    Embarrassing.

    Was this worse than the shows on Dave featuring Haye?

    It did look similar didn't it.

    Really poor and amateur looking. The camera was shocking, I couldn't figure out why it was so bad but then seen at the end all the ringside cameras where remote controlled. So some nerd is controlling the cameras from a Nintendo switch. What was wrong with humans??

    And we thought dazn was poor :(

    Yeah, they need to stop the adverts. It's too much.

    And CEJ as the new generation? He's in his 30's ffs!

    Even Savannah and Huey have been around the block a bit. At least Josh Taylor is relatively fresh but in need of a rebuild.

    Rumours of Kal Yafai fighting on the Dec card. If they could get Galal also the could maybe start building cards.

    Tonight was weak but losing the Ritson fight meant they lost the one competitive tv fight.

    It was embarrassing tbh. Also I thought Hughie was advertised as main event, but suddenly he started at 7.30 pm. There was also a Youtube stream with Dave Allen and another guy who were watching the fight and we had to watch them.. very strange, also awful quality and Allen sounds like Holyfield.

    Eubank Jr really does need to get a move on if he has any sort of ambition.

    Big if.

    It was horrible to watch.

    Not sure if Sky are wanting to go down the Triller route and turn fight night into a music hybrid event.

    The DJ was a bad idea and the music was terrible.

    It would not surprise me to see live music acts being used next to pad out the show.

    Sky really need to up the quality on just about everything before they put on another card.

    It did seem a little cheap. I was using a friend's sky login from UK and a VPN but it wasn't great

    Noticed Sky have started having football shows with Youtubers and having ‘influencers’ presenting on Sky Sports News. They’re probably going that route across the board.

    BT is much better for me. The boxing coverage, football, Champions League, UFC etc. Production is loads better.

    It was bloody awful, but as the DAZN deal begins to fail, watch SKY's roster improve and therefore the cards will too
