Showtime has fight camp 360 so it shouldnt be that bad lol

I'm sure Floyd will make it entertaining... While guerrero unknowingly makes it dull.

So does this mean rios Bradley and donaire are now hbos big fish?

OMG...this Floyd Mayweather Jr. guy Is The Shit...much smarter than I thought...and that is coming from someone who thought of Floyd as an astute business man, and a ruler of his own corner of the boxing ecosystem. Good and promising, career-enhancing exposure for his up and coming fighters, too. And some keep wondering why all these news/threads about Floyd? He is The Show! Haters in any form be damned. And, to cap it off, I firstly, actually and genuinely love his fighting style to boot. HBO can move on all they want. P34c3

But what's crazy is Floyd gave a hint line 2 years ago on fighthype I think. He said he's working on the biggest fight deal in history. And he did it. This is great for boxing because it now will get exposure on network television and draw more fans.

What's makes it worse for HBO is half of those fighters you mentioned (Pacquaio, Bradley, Martinez) are HBO fighters lmao. AND on BoxRec.com it says Broner (HBO fighter) is fighting on May 4 at the MGM Grand. Lampley and Kellerman just need to retire.. I will miss HBO 24/7's narrator and Andre Ward's/Roy Jones's commentary however. If your list comes into fruition (WHICH I HOPE IT DOES) I better never hear the names Maywearher, Margarito, and Paul Williams spoken in the same breath again

No more Mayweather 24/7..(IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)
Actually, just like 24/7 itself, something as interesting can still be created out of thin air, or the current form of it by Showtime be considerably enhanced? P34c3

But still consider that Floyd is not getting any younger, if he were to lose, what would happen to the conditions of the contract? Remember, it's says "Up to six times, not that Floyd will be fighting six times." It is doubtful that Floyd would fight more often than once to twice a year, even under the new deal and network.

But in other news Mickey Bey failed his drug test. Boxing could never have a pure moment without something or someone tarnishing the purity https://twitter.com/danrafaelespn/status/303952794761715712

I wonder if the fine print states that he gets to exclusively pick his opponents. If something like this is in the contract,then it's 6 exhibitions against carefully selected opponents. Glad to see Guerrero get his shot. Hope he makes the most of it. Wonder if he got his 4 mill?

Check this out:
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/boxing--money...-183025721.html

"Floyd could beat any of them guys, from 140 to 147 and from 154 to 160," Ellerbe said. "I didn't say he was fighting at [middleweight], just that he could beat all them guys in those weights. We'll see what he chooses to do."
-Leonard Ellerbe

According to this article Canelo-Trout is also still up in the air. Looks like Canelo pulled a Mayweather claiming to face a fighter just to stir things up.
