As a boxing fan my wants are pretty simple. Show any of the big fights that are out there and preview/review them in shows like Ringside. Don't give us constant Khan and Haye updates, don't build up Groves-DeGale to be anything like as big as Eubank-Benn because it just isn't, don't completely ignore major results like Donaire destroying Montiel, just give us a more varied analysis of the boxing world. One of their shows had highlights of Martinez, Bute, Rigondeaux and it was one of the better Ringside shows I have seen. I don't know how much power Adam Smith or any of the guys backing boxing on Sky really have, but would it really be that complex to have more big fights from across the globe on Sky?
I agree with you there is a lot that could be added but like Che pointed out Sky pull the shots not Smith, they pull the shots and would want their main signed fighters to be shown, which is Haye and Kahn ( before the split ) they are/were the fighters they have signed for big money and will want them pumped up for the pay per views they sell. To make money !!!
They are the guys who bring the money in. Again another of Che's points was Sky got back into it since Setenta split and why is this ?? To make money !! they are not back in this because they want to help us hard core fans enjoy boxing from around the world on their channel.
I think Smith is doing his best to try and get the happy medium between Sky and cater for the fans as well, he isnt stupid, he knows what the fans want but at the same time has to apease the big boys who run the show.
Last weeks show had Kahn on Ringside which was prob because they didnt have time to switch it due to the split but then also had the Ortiz - Berto fight shown.
I think a lot of fans i see on here want everything and all for nothing, when the world doesnt work like that, a good example of this is the Degale - Groves fight gets made which we have all been screaming out for and a few moan they dont want to pay for it !! Unreal !!
I think we should be glad with what we do have maybe glass half full as if sky pulled the plug what would we have ??
