I was talking in more domestic terms with regards our own National game.Women's and Men's boxing are on the same cards. But that's the way boxing works by having a number of fights on the card.

The Women's Hundred runs alongside the Men's. But that
The danger though of running tournaments together is obviously the danger of being overshadowed by the more established tournament. Any World Cup or Euro's tend to have three live games a day as it is. I doubt there would be the necessary bandwidth to double that output across four weeks with the TV companies, let alone the audience.
I thought this was all about over promoting or hyping anyway? It's the biggest competitions in Women's football, they are going to get promoted by the TV companies that have the rights as they do for the Men's. That's not really anything to do with the sport. It is TV's demand.
