With the huge fight between Floyd Mayweather Junior and Manny Pacquiao fast approaching, there had been some speculation as to who would broadcast the fight in the UK.

It seemed that it was a straight fight between Sky Sports and Box Nation for the right to broadcast live the historic bout.

Today it has been announced that Sky Sports has won the battle and that the tear-up between Mayweather and Pacquiao will be shown on Sky Box Office.

The fee charged for the pleasure of tuning into the May 2nd battle is a quite reasonable £9.95, far less than speculation had suggested.

It looks like it?ll be a long night but one that will, I hope, be well worth it.
