https://talksport.com/sport/boxing/765248/uk-tv-vasyl-lomachenko-vs-teofimo-lopez-terence-crawford-vs-kell-brook/

Bob Arum laying into Eddie Hearn basically saying Sky puts up any crap he offers up but currently neither Sky or BT or any other UK broadcaster is showing the Lomachenko v Lopez fight on October 17th.

Quote
This sensational lightweight unification bout is arguably the most highly anticipated bout for boxing fans at present.

However, Arum told iFL TV: “I don’t think any of the television networks in the UK have bothered to buy that fight.

“Where’s Sky and where’s BT and where’s ITV? If it’s such a great fight, how come nobody’s bought it?”

When asked if there is any interest whatsoever, he replied: “None. N-O-N-E, none. What does that tell you about the state of the sport?
“Meanwhile every bit of Eddie’s junk goes on Sky and they make the poor fans in the UK shell out money to watch all of this stuff.

“Usyk and Chisora, in which world is that a pay-per-view fight? The networks in the UK are just taking money from the boxing fans and they’re not giving back.

“A fight like Usyk and Chisora – which may well end up to be a good fight – that should be free on television.

“A television network that is doing boxing should buy a Lomachenko vs Lopez fight, which is a classic lightweight championship for all four belts.

Also said that Terence Crawford v Kell Brook is being finalised for  November 14th.

I was certain that the Loma fight would be on here; disgraceful if not!  :no

I do worry for Fordy, and also for Kell  ;D Crawford inside six rounds for me.

I think someone will eventually buy it mate, I hope they do.  This for the Undisputed Lightweight Championship.

If not well  there's always some dodgy streams.   ;D

My Internet is shite so streams usually don't work!

What do you reckon about Brook? I think he is shot to shit and will get battered like he did against GGG. I believe it will end much sooner than most people think actually.

Bellew was in an era of monster Cruiserweight's. The only period of time since the Holyfield era where the division was more than semi decent.

Yeah Bellew wouldn't have made it through the first round in that last WBSS they did.

Which is why he avoided them all and fought Flores instead!🤣 He chose Haye instead of defending against Breidis. Smart move.

Briedis isn't doing much for the RAWK Latvian shouts is he?

IMO he's among the most underrated fighters in boxing. He's borderline elite. I had Usyk squeezing by but Breidis could easily have got that decision. He handled Dorticos comfortably tonight. Excellent standard fight.

Yeah we're going to have to find a new country where all these elections come from ;D

Dorticos is no mug and he handled him like you said. Don't think he'd have much luck up at HW but he's elite at CW for sure.

I recall him flattening Charr up at HW. Breidis was over 16 stone 😮 I'd give him a good shot against Wilder if I'm honest. Fury and AJ would be steps too far though.

I don't think the scoring system helps though Samie.
One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be ‘Liverpool’. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10

Best electrician job ever mate 🤣 everyone raves about Usyk and he barely beat this chap. Doesn't get enough credit IMO. If he had battered Bellew you'd be his best mate too.

It doesn't, that and it depends on what the judges are looking for in terms of scoring. There's no one set of rules to how a fight should be scored.

My only thing with him is he caught Dorticos and Usyk with some good strong shots that I think you'd be expecting to produce a KO up at HW. So I wonder if he'll take his power up with him.

I might have said the same about Usyk though to be fair until he put Bellew into the first row.

Sad if so. Should have been set for life after the money from the Leonard fight (although that is a long time ago now).

At least he’s not announcing a comeback

Jesus. Hagler is trying to smile, such is his desperation to make sales. This is serious lads  :(

That said, I read somewhere that he has managed his money well and lives in Italy. I hope that is the case.

Think Hearns ended up having to sell all his memorabilia to pay off a tax bill a few years ago.  Hopefully it's not the same with Hagler, although I bet he could make a few quid through TV appearances etc. if he had to, so hopefully this is not out of desperation.
