nah they wont pull the plug.
i think the best thing they can do is not renew an exclusive deal with sports network so that way they can show other stables

If Warren starts getting his fighters fighting each other in domestic matches ITV would be crazy not to want to show them.

I cant belive setana sports !!! u gotta get sky then pay extra on top for it. All these tv deals are killing boxing in the uk there is just not enough coverage, and setana sports is just so inacessible. I cant belive that the last five or so heavyweight title fights have never been shown anywhere on sky , setana or freeview. Its a sad state of affairs , someone like channel 5 should come in for the rights instead of airing ice hockey and american football late nights. Or the bbc could stop wasting our licence fee on carpet bowls, darts and all the other 3rd rate sports they can find

The problem is that sky are not even showing hardly any boxing. i mean we get the odd big fight. then crap friday fightnight but we miss out on so much recent ones that ring a bell are bell mormeck, valuev chagaev, briggs ibragimov , wlad austin. We just get two crappy english fighters for 8 rounds fighting in some 300 seat sports center on friday nights this is a reason why i simply refuse to get sky

I watched klitschko-byrd 2 on setanta last year and the broadcast was crap. They were giving incorrect records for the fighters and it kept switching between fights when they were only halfway through. I remember they gave Andy lee's record as 0-2.
