On September 20, ‘’Saint’’ George Groves (19-2, 15 KOs) returns in a final eliminator for the WBC World Super Middleweight title against European Champion Christopher Rebrasse (22-2-3, 6 KOs). Team Sauerland is pleased to announce that the ‘’Return of the Saint’’ will be available to watch live on Sky Sports in association with Matchroom Boxing.
 
‘’I am thrilled to be back boxing on Sky Sports,’’ said Groves. ‘’It is a great platform for boxing in the UK. Over the years I have made a lot of friends within the company and created a base of fantastic fans with the help of their exposure. I’m sure with their continued support everyone will be able to see me lift the WBC belt live on Sky Sports in the near future.’’
 
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ‘’We are delighted this fight will be on Sky Sports, where George has found his home in recent years. Considering the importance of this fight for George’s career, this is the icing on the cake in terms of making it a big night for British boxing. We are also very happy to be working with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing to bring fans an action-packed undercard.’’ 
 
Said Eddie Hearn: “Delighted to reach an agreement with Team Sauerland to broadcast George Groves’ clash with Christopher Rebrasse at The SSE Arena on Sky Sports. Following the success of the Froch vs. Groves card at Wembley Stadium, we felt it was important to keep George on Sky, with some huge domestic and international fights at Super Middleweight sure to be in the mix. The undercard will feature a number of top Matchroom Boxing fighters, with a full card to be announced shortly
 
Already confirmed for September 20 are Olympic gold medalist Luke Campbell MBE (7-0, 5 KOs), Commonwealth Super Flyweight Champion Kal Yafai (11-0, 8 KOs), lightweight prospect Martin J. Ward (9-0-1, 4 KOs), Swedish KO king Oscar Ahlin (9-0, 8 KOs) and professional debutant Luke Watkins.

Id rather see Matchroom as a monopoly than listen to Frank Warren promote ****ty fights that the fans don't want and then not pay fighters - e.g. Leonard Bundu. If it wasn't for Eddie the UK boxing scene would be less than average at this moment in time, he has revived British boxing.

[QUOTE=springfiels]Yeah I knew all that. My point was that Hearn is blatantly more than just a promoter selling fights to Sky, he is basically their match fixer. Sky isn't a broadcaster in the UK with this arrangement, it is basically the promoter. Not a great situation, it's a blatant monopoly....

[QUOTE=springfiels]So is Eddie Hearn actually the man who decides what gets shown on Sky Sports now? They might as well just call Matchroom what it is; Sky Sports Boxing. Very unhealthy for British boxing.[/QUOTE] Adam Smith is the head of Sky Sports boxing but Eddie and Matchroom sport was ...

Makes sense to keep this supermiddleweight Froch, Groves , Degale , P Smith, Fielding and C Smith merry go round all on one channel. A bummer for boxnation but as sky also got the rights to Abraham vs Smith im not suprised they got it.
