Looks like bad news. Setanta in trouble, ITv announcing that they are leaving boxing. Meaning that in the UK the only tv broadcasters of boxing.

Hey Rish,

sorry to post this on the board but I had techincal difficulties sending you a direct message.

I noticed that Wlad vs Chagaev is being shown on secondsout PPV this weekend. Unfortunately, since I'm from the UK and a non Sky-subscriber, I can't see it (for understandble exlusivity reasons), but it reminded me that secondsout's PPV screenings of Roy Jones Jr and Adamek's last fights were great, and gave UK fans their only chance to see those guys in action.

I was just wondering if Jones Jr vs Lacy in August and Adamek vs Gunn next month were likely to be shown on secondsout?

I also noticed fights like Darchinyan vs Agebeko, Bradley vs Campbell and Witter vs Alexander haven't been picked up by UK TV - are they the kind of fights secondsout would be likely to screen if no UK broadcaster showed interest? What kind of fights are secondsout in general looking to screen? Hopotate vs McCall seemed a comedown after Adamek and Jones Jr (although perhaps Hopotate generated interested in Australia.)

Thanks for any info you can give me, I really appreciate it.
