They're saying that HBO is going the crazy ex-Girlfriend route with this split. Lol
I guess they are on Their Taylor Swift. The full report is yet to come out on yahoo but if true this would prove more serious than I imagined. Unfortunately I believe HBO will hurt themselves more so in the long run. You don't burn bridges.....

Lemme just say, I in no way believe Broner would do any business with 50 cent as far as him promoting him. He's too unproven and FNF cards aint gon do it for a main event attraction like Broner. GB and Haymon have taken a hit, how big is not yet known but a hit nonetheless. But they still wield some influence in the biz and their stable of fighters is pretty deep

As far as who comes out the winner-loser here will just have to wait to be decided. IMO both will see some damaging effects....GB no longer has the budget of a HBO and that makes me wonder how that will effect them at contract time with their fighters. If they put on compelling fights that the viewers are intrigued by then that will go along way. But the bottom line is Showtime needs the subscribers to really go at HBO

I think that recently, especially last year, that Showtime had the better overall quality of matches. This is good for Showtime because they have a little more leverage now in terms of future fights. Just looking at Showtime right now they have Mayweather, Broner, Canelo, Khan, etc. That's not a bad lineup, my concern is the limited budget of Showtime. And let's face it, HBO know how to build boxers into attractions or even stars...look how they sold that lemon, Berto to us for all these yrs

HBO will be hurt because their essentially out of the 140-154lb business. And even though they seem to insinuate that they want better fights, I think we know they're counting on Arum and TR to deliver for them now. Which is a 50-50 proposition for them because he easily gets butt hurt about the dumbest things. But this also opens up Dibella and Shaw and Goosen on board. They have some fighters on the verge of breakthrough stardom, i.e. Andre Ward, and we all know Dibella has done some great things for HBO in the past. All in all both companies will be fine and I suspect they'll do business down the road
