if this is really true. do you think it was a bad move for showtime to sign that monsterous deal? I hope this is nothing but a rumor but i think there might be some truth to this. i really hope its not the case but we will find out sooner than later.

For all of you that said, who is Alvarez to think he calls the shots. Here's your freakin' zinger... Alvarez/Trout would have brought this PPV well over a million buys. That was a fight people wanted to see. I refused to buy Mayweather/Guerrero on its face. Guerrero was at 135, doing well. People were not that interested in Mayweather/Guerrero. Mayweathers fans were really the only ones buying into that shit because they wanted to see their Michael Jackson in another blowout. Well, I hope these numbers getr considered in the negotiations for ALvarez(if it happens). Also that $69 was kinda steep too. Wasnt Lewis/Tyson $25? How'd we get to $69 PPV's so fast??

How do you account for the much smaller subscriber base for Showtime as opposed to HBO. Huge PPV numbers are based on casual fans who are attracted by things like 24/7 and All Access. When fewer people see those infomercials for fights, you will have fewer PPV buys. That is to be expected to an extent and was called before the fight by others on the board.
