I agreed with everything, except the only thing that kind of surprised me was that Mayweather-Hatton was the "can't miss event of 2007" instead of De La Hoya-Mayweather.


I think that Mayweather-Delahoya could have won if it had been a better fight inside the ring. Perhaps the fans believed that Mayweather's KO of Hatton was more exciting (and it was) than what Mayweather-Delahoya produced. People love KOs. I think that is what made Mayweather-Hatton more memorable.

What surprised me was the overwelmong stats favoring HBO as the best network of 2007. In terms of money generated for the big fights, yes. However, I voted for Showtime because HBO puts too many bouts on PPV that should be on the regular HBO network and Showtime is moving away from PPV. For instance, Showtime will be giving us the electrifying Marquez-Vasquez III match as a NON PPV. HBO is force-feeding a NON-TITLE PPV event in Pavlick-Taylor II for $50. The first fight was great, so those greedy bastards (yes, that's how I feel) have the audacity to charge $50 for a non-title match!!??? Taylor can't make weight so it has to be non-title? Because of this, that match doesn't deserve to be PPV. HBO is ripping off the fans.

If that's the case, I think people may have interpreted the question wrong (or maybe I did). "Can't miss event of 2007" to me is a fight that you simply couldn't miss and the type of reaction you had leading up to the fight, not looking back in hindsight. That's me anyways, but yeah the Hatton fight was a huge fight, I just thought that the DLH-Mayweather fight was the "can't miss event", even if you would have liked to have missed it once it was over.


But you are correct that a "Can't Miss Fight" is open to interpretation. So much in boxing is subjective and open to interpretation. But doing this was a wonderful and very fun experience for the fans to be heard! I think there is unanimous consent on that.

I want to thank everyone who took the time to vote and spread the word to all of the world's many boxing and MMA fans!
