Protect Boxing TV Coverage sign now

Professional Boxing promoters are failing to consider the future of the sports fan base by signing exclusive TV deals with Subscription channels. The petition is to make sure boxing remains a popular sport for generations by making sure any British fighter performing at a highest level is seen buy the biggest audience possible.

In the broadcasting act of 1996 many sporting event were put into two categories. Category A features events such as The FIFA World Cup Finals, The Olympics, Rugby World Cup and Wimbledon Tennis Final, and guarantees that they will receive a live terrestrial television broadcast.
Category B features events such as Test Cricket matches, The Ryder Cup and Six Nations rugby. It guarantees that Secondary Coverage (Highlights, Delayed coverage) is protected and must be shown by a terrestrial broadcaster.

This petition is to make any world title fight (sanctioned by the WBA, WBC, WBO, and IBF) involving a British boxer become a category B Protected event. This would ensure the lasting popularity of one of countrys oldest past times, and allow all of Britain the ability to view world class boxing involving a British fighter.
