One of my favorite weekly rituals was downloading Steve Bunce’s Boxing Hour podcast and getting the 411 about what’s happening in boxing. With just the right mix of journalism and pub-style fun, Bunce, along with co-host Andy Kerr, gave something to the sport that was sorely lacking…A professional centerpiece news magazine; Essentially, the Sportscenter of the Boxing world…
With the collapse of Setanta Sports in the UK, British fight fans will be missing out on some great action and, maybe just as important, the Bunce Boxing Hour will be silent.
In order for Boxing to keep afloat and maintain interest in a Summer full of cancelled bouts and an economy that is struggling, shows like “the Boxing Hour” are essential…and voices like Bunce’s are crucial to keeping the fires burning until better days come.
The BTBC is urging its members, friends and fans to support the “Bring Back Bunce” campaign by signing the online petition and doing everything possible to bring this show back on the air so that the UK and fans from around the world can once again have this source for Boxing news and commentary.
