HBO has wasted money on fights and fighters. Berto has never been a draw and he got paid way too much to fight cats outside the top 10. HBO ended up spending about 5 mil on Bradley and Alexander for them to fight and they honestly haven't had much of a return on it, they both got way too good of deals. Showtime consistently puts on a better show with a smaller budget, HBO eats up it's budget doing deals for people. they need to tell Haymon and everyone else to kick rocks, if fighters want HBO money and exposure they need to start delivering something.

it's sad how small boxing has become outside of the big two. nary a fight worth caring about, and nary a fight at all. aside from the meaningless friday night fight shows, and some B/C level prospects like Rios and Gamboa that I don't yet give a shit about, and some old farts like Hopkins, there is nothing worth getting excited about in boxing. And none of it is worth getting TOO excited about regardless. I'll tell you where this sport is going... it's going outside of America's borders, where people still care about their homegrown fighters. This is an MMA country.

ur going to have to be more specific on the hbo fights. sure, some fights have not been the best....but i don't think anyone fighting on the network is overpaid by any means.


Chad Dawson getting paid a butt load of money for a recycled Showtime fight against Tarver. Chad Dawson then fighting Glen Johnson again for 1+ million, another recycled Showtime fight. Amir Kahn gettin over a million each fight against opponents like Paulie, McClosky, and Judah. Those fights aren't worth a million imo. Maidana he deserved to get paid against. Berto against pretty much every opponent he fought. The list goes on, the last two years have been dry as fuck for HBO

you're fucking retarded if you think Gamboa is a B level prospect, he's a 2 division wold champion and a gold medalist, any respect i had for you as a poster has went with this post. America has had all of the highest revenue fights, fight capital of the world remains in Vegas. Ur boy Joey C came here to get paid, just like every other fighter that wants to make. Anyone who wants to make real money comes to this country and don't get all up on me about being a yankee because I'm first generation American on one side(4th on the other side) and have 3 houses in Europe and one in Australia. I have family all over and everyone of them that has made it big came here to do real business

ward is going to school froch. anything can happen in a fight...but that is pretty much a done deal. froch brings nothing to the table that ward hasn't already shown he can deal with. the contract has been signed....they will fight.....ward will win.


i expect ward to win, but that damn froch has really raised his game the last few years... im with beardo... i cant just give it to ward just like that... even if he loses like we both think he will froch has got to be wards most stern challenge to date... no way ward walks away with an easy victory in this fight...

Yeah Ward is supposed to win this fight, as they say, but I dont see it being a walk in the park for him either. If anybody, froch will be the one to test him.
