Nah they aint playing it by the looks of it.

They will probably show the fight next week if they do, pisses me off when they do that. Why not just play it live!?

I have both, and if asked to chose would take Setanta. They are much more reliable for boxing. they get pretty much every big fight and show it live..

Sky sometimes get good fights but often play them a week after they happen which sucks.

and the hatton fights are ppv so even if you subscribe to Sky Sports you have to pay again.

i only keep sky for the decent domestic fights like appleby-simpson last night.

Aye Setanta is quality.....

The only thing Sky has going for it is Ricky Hattons fights....everyone else is on Setanta

Vlad v Thomson
Manny v Diaz
Cotto v Margarito
Amir Khan's fights after this next one which will be the last on ITV.
Calzaghe's fights, Haye's fights

It also has Premiership football, FA Cup, International and World Cup Qualifiers.
SPL...Blue Square.
Cricket, Golf and Rugby
Setanta Sports News....okay it's **** but it's there.

All for just ***163;12.99 a month and they don't charge extra for the big events like Sky. For ***163;12.99 you get everything. But with Sky you pay a minimum of ***163;34 a month for Sky Sports, ***163;4 a month extra if you want Sky Sports News. + ***163;15 a time if you want the big boxing matches....I don't see any more Hatton fights not appearing on Sky Box Office.

Setanta all the way. ***163;12.99 is incredible value for the boxing alone.

All for just 12.99 a month and they don't charge extra for the big events like Sky. For 12.99 you get everything. But with Sky you pay a minimum of 34 a month for Sky Sports, 4 a month extra if you want Sky Sports News. + 15 a time if you want the big boxing matches....I don't see any more Hatton fights not appearing on Sky Box Office.

Setanta all the way. 12.99 is incredible value for the boxing alone.

It has no FA cup that's bbc's.

And it was **** all decent football. It has I believe one match at most a week, actually I lie maybe 2 premiership matches. Good if you don't support anyone but the top four. It#s seriosuly weak though and is hardly worth mentioning.. It's basically a glorified premiership plus.

Setanta owns on the boxing front though.

And I swear sKy sports news is bog standard? :-S It's on free view ffs

I agree for football setanta does have some top matches but they are never matches u are really interested in, very similar to premiership plus in terms of quality of matches..i support villa so we do get alot of matches on setanta.

But for boxing .G.D.F.O.H sky sports sucks....setanta are killing it with the boxing, they go as far as having all the good domestic matches and hatton...which is P.P.V anyway. and considering he fights like once or twice a year you end up left with only up and coming domestic..setanta have all the big fights in america (cotto margarito, pacquiao, pavlik, wlad, judah, torres holt to name a few) and have all david haye's fights...sky easily for football but boxing its all about sultana setanta...i subscribed to it online so i can watch it on my laptop. comes out brilliant, jus like watching tv, hardly ever messes up and stops to buffer or anythin.
