Even with Primetime having 3 months notice they couldnt do the same job marketing Sky can with Khan using Ringside and all the usual marketing hype and bollocks across all the sports channels & magazine.
Even with the higher costs Sky would have taken out of the revenue I think he was an idiot leaving them as im pretty sure his PPV pot to share would still have ended up higher then being with Primetime and as he doesnt have a PPV pot in the USA to negotiate with he really doesnt have a pot to piss in negotiating with Bradley.
I want the fight don't get me wrong and I agree they should just fight to sort out 140, but it's just one of those things.....hopefully it happens in the future
