So yeah, no more Sergey fight, hello Hopkins, if he does continue to fight on HBO, then maybe theres hope for other fighters etc.

The ratings are with HBO AND they are paying less money. Game over. Long-term I think GBP and HBO need to work it out, but for now HBO is doing good. Ratings=money. If HBO can get bigger ratings while spending less on fights, they win.

I don't know about Hopkins. He clearly was beat by Dawson and since then he beat Cloud and Murat. Mehhh. It may be a matchup thing...Dawson beats Hopkins, Hopkins beats Stevenson, and Stevenson beats Dawson.

If the game was over then Showtime wouldn't be named the network of the year 2yrs in a row. The ratings stuff is skewed by the fact that there are more subscribers with HBO and somehow the gap is still being closed by Showtime. Know why that is? Better cards and better fights are being made across the street. The game has just begun...who enjoyed watching Zou yesterday or Miguel Vasquez boring ass?? I didn't think so.

If Bernard isn't the best at 175 then there ain't no best. It's insulting to say that one guy who just moved up to light heavy and ko'd s fighter who was ko'd by the 2nd best fighters in the business is the king of that division. Then beats Cloud who was already soundly beaten by Bernard. There's no case for Adonis as the king of that weight class then. Kovalev, who the hell did he beat? Campillo? Next...Hopkins been at the upper echelon of that division for quite a while and it's insulting that 2 guys get knockouts now they run the division. That's hype clouding the fans' minds.
