Default Boxing News launches campaign to bring back boxing to the BBC

http://www.boxingnewsonline.net/BN08/detail.asp?id=1234



Quote:
THIS marks the week Boxing News launches its campaign to bring boxing back to the nation's public service broadcaster, the BBC. Tris Dixon's special feature highlights the corporation's history in the sport and urges them to invest in its future. Stay tuned to find out how you can support our campaign.

We also report from "Hook City" where Roy Jones for some people turned back the clock against Jeff Lacy and for others simply outclassed a hand-picked opponent. Either way, we have every punch.

Elsewhere, we report on Nonito Donaire's title defence in Las Vegas against Rafael Concepcion, we look ahead to the Houston bill which sees Paulie Malignaggi meet hometown hero Juan Diaz and boxing stalwart Dean Powell is our State of the Game subject.

Former Liverpool, Spurs and England midfielder Jamie Redknapp tells us Why He Likes Boxing, the comebacking Andy Morris is our 60-Second Interview and we hear from all the Prizefighter contenders.
Once the details are released, I think EVERYBODY should get behind this.

BN***8217;S challenge to the BBC To pick up the coverage of the Super Six tournament or to screen what should be the biggest fight of the year in November, when Manny Pacquiao takes on Miguel Cotto in a mouth-watering clash, either live and/or on a delayed basis at a reasonable time on BBC 2 and/or BBC 3 and with the build-up, i.e. HBO***8217;s 24/7 show.

The BBC***8217;s response ***8220;The BBC is always keen to show sport***8217;s biggest events live. In boxing, unfortunately, the really significant fights come at a price which is very hard for us to justify. We remain committed to comprehensive coverage of boxing in both the Olympics and Commonwealth Games and are actively looking at ways we can improve our boxing build-up to those major events.***8221;

OK, the rights to some fights may cost into the millions.

But there are plenty of good, anticipated, fights that never get shown on UK TV. It can't cost that much to get some boxing. I can't guarantee accuracy here, but I read that Sky got the rights to Taylor/Pavlik for £40,000. And that's a significant enough fight.

Nuts TV, who only broadcasted for a few hours a day, and were presumably on a nothing budget, were able to show a couple of live world title fights. But the BBC can't show anything?
