Khan vs McCloskey heading to Primetime TV
The move came after Sky downgraded Khan v McCloskey from a pay-per-view event last week, following various withdrawals from the undercard, hitting the WBA champ in the pocket for close to £1m.
A spokesman for Sky Sports confirmed on Sunday: ‘The Khans have refused the offer to move from Sky Box Office to Sky Sports 3. It does not mean we will no longer have ties with them.’
Primetime, which airs on Sky channel 480 and has been the home of WBC super-middleweight champion Carl Froch’s recent Super Six bouts, has yet to confirm the fight despite reports that a deal has been done.
