I`m so fed up with SS. I pay nearly 20 a month for it and they cater with the most obscure sports yet refuse to show the trans Atlantic fights.

I am all for the local cards they show but what happened to their big time boxing series of shows i remember the Barrera/Morales trilogy being on that.

EPSN are adding things to their package. Hopefully big time boxing will be the next thing they snap up.

a tennis fan might say that boxing is **** and couldn't name 6 boxers, makes no difference man .

Im guessing that sky will ppv or show on their sky package all the 'super 6' stuff .

Im happy with what ESPN is offering in the uk , loads of football and ufc ,then espn friday night boxing on the Saturday night .

just because we want to watch boxing doesn't necessarily mean that there is a battle for rights , sky will simply outbid and get the rights i guess

ESPN is building a great amount of sports for uk people to watch

nobody can blame them for not outbidding sky for every promoters fights .

Totally wrong, boxing draws in big numbers compared to other sports when on normal tv. Someone like channel 5 could do well picking up boxing.

don't understand why no one wants it, snooker, darts, tennis..........****

The Beeb should pick it up.

I'm sorry but if you think about it picking up a ****ty Europa Cup Match between Man City and Aalborg, probably costs as much to screen as a top domestic clash to screen or a world title mega-fight that hasn't been picked up.

Long-Live Setanta, it was a shame they picked up Scottish Football, German and French Football, and the England International. Didn't need them. They took some great risks though they deserved to be rewarded.
