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.

This was Showtime's first time at the big rodeo if it didn't crack a million they will go back to the drawing board and do better. Floyd put on a masterpiece so he lived up to his end of the bargain. He even has a new attitude so if anything his next fight will do twice as good. No one expected a 5 year younger version of Mayweather. Even that uncle tom bitch ass Michael Wilbon who hates Mayweather was amazed at his performance. I think it will crack a million plus. Hell even BET showed 30 days in May. I think it did well.

i think i may be alone in thinking this is a good thing for boxing.

maybe they lower the price of ppv's?

maybe they do away with them totally?

ppv is not good for boxing.

bring boxing back to network tv where it belongs. to be honest....floyd vs anyone from 140-147 is not ppv worthy.

floyd vs canelo, martinez or ggg is ppv worthy.

Those are unrealistic match ups and GGG as well as Sergio are still unknown to the casual fan. If you break away from PPV that means you have to find a way to make up for that lost money. I think PPV is bullshit because it cost way to much and you may or may not get a good value on what you paid for. It is 50/50. I think you are spot on.

once upon a time...sponsors/networks used to put up all the money for these huge fights. we could get back to that if these guys would understand how to lure that sponsorship money. all the street hood shit sells to the general public...but to the guys signing them checks, that shit is a turn off.

as for ggg and sergio being too big...i agree, they are big....but if floyd wants to prove to the public that he is the greatest of all time, he's going to have to step out of his current division to do it because there are no real challenges at 147 for him. plus i think he beats canelo at 154 fairly easily. who else is there at 154 that could possibly give floyd a hard time? at one time i thought trout would...but after seeing his performance against canelo..i'm not so sure. i can't see lara, molina, martirosyan or any one else at 154 giving him any kind of trouble at all. 160 is where the highest stakes lie. we're talking the stuff that all time greats are made of. he can retire off of something like that easily. at this point...sergio is the weakest link at 160...and honestly i've always thought floyd could beat him. with his pops back in his corner...i'm even more convinced.
