    Same, did you see the IFL interview where he said why they stopped working with him? It was to do with a dispute with a fan. Not sure how much truth is in what he said though.

    Yeah something like a fan had a go at him at the Lomachenko Campbell weigh in, he had a go back and Frank Smith didn’t like it and never worked with Matchroom again :lol:

    I must also admit that I am incredibly happy with my Sky + HD Box and card :) The only thing I fear is that Sky will stop broadcasting via satellite in the near future.

    Apparently he spat in a fans face at a weigh in. Smith said he had a go at him.

    but smith said they never chose the announce team on Sky so it wasn’t his decision it was sky’s

    Fail to believe that, Sky love him, and as soon as Matchroom have left they’ve had him back.

    Agree. I think it was a combination of both. The race comments he made then spitting in someone’s face. Both matchroom and sky likely decided it’s best to stay clear. Given Carragher did the same thing and works at Sky so no reason Pauline can’t

    he’s had a break and Sky need some decent names on the broadcast.

    I personally think Pauli’s is one of the best around

    I agree. Paulie Malignaggi is excellent as a expert with good analysis. Great to have him back !

    Used to be brilliant when he’d bring Adam Smith and the other co-commentator back to earth and they’d go silent.

    Tonight’s card has got to be one of the worst on record. I like the Burton vs Azeez fight but other than that if you backed all the favourites on the card in an accumulator £10 would make you £1 profit.

    Wouldn't trust Frank Smith as far as I could throw him.

    He seems like a snivelling little suck up to people higher up than him. He's the type to sht on his own mother to move up the career ladder.

    It is crap but you have to remember Sky had zero fighters 2 months ago.

    The new Sky Glass streams are exactly the same as DAZN streams with both 1-2 mins behind the live action and basically not live sports broadcasting.

    Satellite should never be binned until the streams are live within a 5 sec variance.

    Otherwise, people are forking out good money for sports highlights and it does not matter if is is 1-2 minutes or 10 hours later - it is highlights and not live.
