With roughly nothing on tap for the next 5 weeks I see that HBO and Showtime are loaded with quality fights in November and December. Only problem is, they're going up against each other 3 of those weeks.

November 6

HBO:
Judah vs. Matthysse
Guerrero vs. Escobedo

Showtime:
Marquez vs. Lopez
Green vs. Glen Johnson (?)


November 27

HBO:
Marquez vs. Katsidis
Berto vs. ?
Caballero vs. Litzau

Showtime:
Ward vs. Dirrell
Abraham vs. Froch


December 11

HBO:
Khan vs. Maidana
Kirkland vs. ?

Showtime:
Perez vs. Agbeko
Darchinyan vs. Mares


Just wondering what people thought were the superior cards. I don't get Showtime anymore so for me there is no choice (though I'm going to try going to a friends who gets it Nov 6 at least. )

Nov 6 & 27 I have to go Showtime. December 11 as good as those bantam fights look I can't miss Khan-Maidana.

Any opinions?

Too hard to choose..Showtime has the super 6 tourney which gives it an edge but HBO makes good fights..Nov. 6 will be a good card for HBO..Oh all the fights listed,I am most excited for Ward/Dirrell..Dec. 11,I'm going with HBO..

I got both networks and will watch all the fights, like most here.

But I would pick Showtime Nov. 6. Even up on Nov. 27. And Dec. 11 I favor HBO. These are just my personal preferences.

What really sucks is these three dates they compete with one another. It be awesome if instead of three weekends of boxing, they were not together then we could have SIX weekends of boxing. That sounds so much better.

I'm sure thats just whats going to happen. But be careful, I forget exactly who, some poster here rides Litzau's nuts real hard. He is going to rip into you pretty hard when he reads this.

I tend to like HBO more, however Showtime putting on Abraham/Froch and Dirrell/Ward is hard to compete with.

I'm just happy to have big fights on both channels, all of them should be entertaining as well.
