Im sorry. I think Im starting to be convinced its a race thing. These guys dont make all this fuss when Morales fat ass doesnt make weight damn near every fight. They dont make a fuss about the catchweights Manny makes opponents come in. He didnt make weight. He paid up. Hop off his dick! Wasnt even like he used his weight as an advantage.

Damn! Stop sucking this dude's dick about the weight, shit. HBO has no sense of fuckin' humor...bunch of fuckin' tight-asses.


I just read this over at BoxRec about HBO's commentary! LOL! Did Lamps bring pom-poms for everybody on the commentary team?

Thurman looks like garbage. Sorry, HBO, but when you try so hard at hyping a guy, the criticism thrown back at him is going to be that much worse. The HBO team is absolutely pathetic at this point. It's like they were broadcasting an infomercial for a cleaning product. HBO and their whorish ways... Cant really stand it these days. Kellerman has even whored himself out to the network.

Obviously not a fan of the HBO commentary, but I disagree completely that Thurman is garbage. He isn't the finished article, but garbage is an "interesting" way to describe him.

I cant say that it's a race thing. Morales has been having trouble making weight since the first Pacquiao fight, so Im sure the world is used to it by now. You're right though, they never seem to make a fuss about Manny's opponents being dead from being weight-drained. Anyhow, I hate how they made a big deal about his weight, but let's face it, that was the story of this fight. Had it not happened, then this would've been another HBO crap card.

When Chavez Jr. comes in overweight or even when he got that DUI incident, HBO did not seem to want to talk about it. They are so protective of the dudes they are trying to make into "stars."

They would be just as bad as some of the judges who protect the house fighters, if they were judges themselves. I think if garbage is showing up on HBO more often, it is their overt bias to certain fighters that they have under contract. Lamply's pom-poming goes deeper than people realize. It influences people, and distorts their perception of what really happens in the fight.

Thanks but no thanks, I'll pass on any future Broner fights. The dude just leaves a bad taste in the mouth after he fights and has nothing to offer me as a die hard fan. I respect the fighters who are true professionals and respect the sport. Good stoppage. I have tons of respect for Joel Diaz who is a outstanding and great trainer. I feel so bad for Escobedo and I totally understand his emotion. Escobedo is a guy who went to Cincinnati witha real sense he would win and instead he gets bushwacked by a guy who don't respect him or what a contract means and come in at the contracted weight. Escobedo got to 130 in a professional way and did it the right way. Broner could have made it to 130 and yea it might have weakened him but escobedo was just as weaken because escobedo had the professionalism to make weight. But these days in boxing doing it the right way gets you taken advantage of. I love and will always support a fighter who may be limited in some departments but will handles himself and boxing in a real professional way over fighters who are ego maniacs with unlimited skill and think they are above everyone and above boxing. Poor Escobedo he got done dirty by dirty people, luckily he got compensated for it. Personally I wished he would have pulled out and never went through with the fight but him being a new father the money they offered would have been crazy to turn down. If the Broner camp didn't feel they done Escobedo dirty they wouldn't have given him that 400,000 dollars to salvage the fight. Al Haymon, Broner and all their people can go and eat a dick for doing boxing and Escobedo dirty. I'll gladly and proudly watch Escobedo again on the spansh channel over any future broner fights on HBO.

I know everyone on here don't feel the same as me and will move on and continue to slurp up everything Broner and call him the second coming. But me being a die hard fan of the true gentleman of professional fighters, i can't and will not support a Broner fight again.

Dude if Broner would have been a professional and did it the honest way and truly honored the contracted weight this weight thing wouldn't be nothing and it would be just another ass whooping he gave. Escobedo was under the impression it was a 130lbs fight. If Broner would have told Escobedo before hand and said he would come over weight and he wouldnt care if he did to would be one thing. Instead he let his opponent drain himself while he didn't. Fighters have died in the ring because of this. Broner pulled a fast one on Escobedo and Broner had his people (Al Haymon) dig him out. This fight wasnt on a even playing field which is funny because everyone's hero here PBF and everyone here at fighthype always yap boxing needs a even playing field. BTW this is not a race thing, it's an honesty and being a professional thing.
