Boxing: Row with Sky costs Khan 'big lump sum'

Amir Khan has lost "a big lump sum" by apparently refusing to lower himself to fighting on Sky Sports 3 this Saturday. The WBA light-welterweight champion's defence against Paul McCloskey in Manchester was downgraded from Sky Box Office to the broadcaster's regular subscription channels before Khan yesterday confirmed he would instead appear on the minor pay-per-view station Primetime TV.

Leading article: Who are you?

"Everyone knows a bloke called Dave," said the owners of UKTV G2 in 2007, explaining the digital television channel's quixotic rebranding exercise. But they probably ought to have checked if there were any companies out there called Dave too. For it turns out that there was a media consultancy just around the corner from the broadcaster already operating under that blokeish moniker.
