Oh, that wasn't a dig at you Lineker Legend, but there are endless threads about it on here. And its not who starts it that wearies me, but the endless debate that goes around and around making all the same points, that follows it.Essentially, lots of wrangling about why ITV or Setenta haven't put up the money to show it: is it because they're skint and it won't make them any money or because Hennesay and Froch are greedy and vastly overestimated the status of the fight.I would say a bit of both. The long and the short is that its highly unlikley to be on tele. There might well be a replay on ITV4 the week after. But for now, the only place to officially watch it is on Hennesey's website www.frochvstaylor.com or somesuch. For ten quid! So, you'd be better off going to a website like www.justin.tv and watching it for free on an, admitedly dodgy, stream.

I cannot believe nobody is showing this fight!! To think of some of them joke Amir Khan fights ITV showed yet this one isn't is pathetic. There is obviously a good reason why it's not being shown, I hope somebody can find that reason out!!!
DanI know it wasn't a dig at me. <ok> Cheers!expertBoxingMasterThat is obviously the reason why then, cheers mate!I must say if that is true it's poor on Froch's behalf especially for the fans that have supported him that can't make it to the US.
I didn't even know Froch was fighting Taylor.I wish someone would keep me informed of these things.Carl Froch vs Phil "The Power" Taylor eh? Should be a good one...what sport are they going to be playing?
Is this another Froch v Taylor TV debate ??<yikes>Ridiculous, I'm off to find an Alex Da Man post.

It said in the news of the world on sunday that you can watch the fight live on stream from their website notw.com
It still may appear last minute on a TV channel. Some UK TV money is better than none. Setanta would be my bet.
Maybe Buncey can work the oracle and pull the rabbit out of the hat?! This is worrying for those who don't have a computer..
