Sky Pundits are going to be on extra special duty when commentating on these MTK shows :yep

Please let OHara get drawn against Turavov, who made a teak tough super welt Ghanian Isaac Aryee give up a few years ago.

Retards thinking Matchroom have approved this tournament on Sky, no they''ve been TOLD these shows are happening on Sky.


Like fuck Hearn would dare cockblock MTK shows, its one company Eddie has never dared slag off and always praises.

Hoped they'd be on Channel 5 tbh. Sky are desperate for decent boxing these days. When does Frank's contract run out with BT? Francis should get by the phone ready!

I think Sky have had a word in his ear too. The content this year had been shocking and people were rightfully moaning. Adam Smith has looked unhappy even by his standards.

Getting the wbss and now this on is a step in the right direction.

If they can't fill the dates themselves then these are ideal replacements. Good competitive fights, guaranteed dates, and the tournament/contract is a good selling point.

I am really looking forward to these.

With this added exposure, and in the same way Ruiz-AJ II was (rightly) criticised for going to Saudi Arabia, it'll be interesting to see if any journalists are willing to dig a little deeper into the running of MTK...

Same. Looking forward to it, deserved better than a stream that nobody watches. Obvious that Sky are picking up cheap stuff that won't piss off Matchroom in order to keep a domestic product on air.

I don't understand why these are selling so poorly, is it lack of big names or advertising?

Have Sky pushed them at all? I have only really seen it mentioned on here, Twitter, and IFL.

Might have been an idea to hold these closest to the home town of the biggest ticket seller(s) in each tourney.
