    Ssssssshhhhhh, stop whining.

    Dave Allen back on a PPV card soon, Hearn told us all, we get the better quality over here in the UK.

    Only the price of a round of drinks, so it's all good.

    The exact sentence I say to my wife every time she asks me "do you think that 6th pint of lager is a good idea"?

    Dude are you a boxing fan? It’s definitely a disgrace when you have a top 3 P4P fighter vs the young upcoming champion fighting and it won’t be available for you to see it.. Not sure how it works in the UK but I would try any online outlets available to watch it.. Carl Froch was one of my favorite fighters and fortunately for me Showtime still aired all of his fights after the S6..

    Loma is the best fighter in the sport and this is his toughest test, this is outrageous.

    True, but it`s a tragedy for boxing in Britain, that hardcore boxing fans are going to miss this, back in `96 no British channel picked up Whitaker v DLH either.

    FUMING
    Bob Arum goes on stunning rant about ‘money-grabber’ UK boxing broadcasters putting on ‘crap’ PPVs and not buying Vasyl Lomachenko vs Teofimo Lopez or Terence Crawford vs Kell Brook

    Am i a boxing fan? Well the sport has been big part of my life as a competitor, been a student of boxing history since mid teens some 40 years since, and life long watcher of bouts, so yes i am a boxing fan.

    Who says i will not be able to view the bout, just not on a terrestrial channel.

    A bout taking place at 4am or such in UK with no UK boxer headlining would have a very limited audience, that is even among boxing fans it's just fact as you can watch the bout very soon afterwards online, plus a terrestrial television channel would have to pay big bucks to show the bout live, to do that they would want a bumper audience, at 4am they would not get that.
