More fights and more money for Warren to show the best fights from the US.

With the new football and cricket deals, sky's monopoly on sports is over.

Blew their load on PL rights and now BT are sniping at them with some sound deals.

Im torn about how good this will be for fans. Two powerful blocs providing competition, great. Two powerful blocs not working with each other, not great.

Very good for boxers though

I'm happy subbing to skysports for now although that may change by next year.

In terms of purely boxing, with the advent of streaming I'm not bothered either way. Plus hearn and Warren have worked together so I see no reason that wouldn't happen now. Things aren't as bad the US... For now
