I saw a story today on the AP Wire that CBS will do four MMA shows.
I'm not an MMA fan, I don't know the difference between Elite XC, Pride, etc. But I do respect their marketing.
I could be wrong but not counting the Contender series what was the last boxing match on national (free) television in prime time?? Was it Tyson vs. Mathis on Fox??
It's always been my opinion that the greed of these promoters or the fact that they'd actually have to WORK (by selling advertising) is what has kept boxing off of mainstream tv and now look at this.
Any thoughts on this and CAN maybe some promoter see that the more things you put on the "free" landscape the more lucrative it'll be for the PPV shows? Pro wrestling has proven this model for years (the old Saturday Night Main event shows). What will it take for boxing promoters to understand this???
