I think it'd make a great promo to put during the transition time between movies/shows, but if they showed it on every BAD event, I think it would start to lose it's impact.
I disagree. I think it would make a great promo. A person fighting handpicked opponents fighting for millions of dollars could have started his career homeless. I don't think they're trying to say it's the norm on BAD, or in boxing even, but it IS possible as there are plenty of stories like this out there. To me it's more of a showcase of boxing, not just of BAD and it's relative enough to put them together.
I agree, that would be a much better use.

I liked the video, but personally I am not getting it. How does this summarize BAD? Most of the fighters on BAD have been fighting handpicked opponents for millions of dollars, at least lately. So yeah, overall a good video, but if it's not about a movie or a documentary I don't see how it relates to Boxing After Dark. One individual who happens to be homeless has a passion for boxing, he could have the same passion for anything else. Anyway, I hope they don't use it as their promo of BAD.
I think it captures the spirit of boxing. It shows the sacrifice, dedication, and even desperation involved in boxing. A homeless guy saving ever penny and selling his only possession[the necklace] just for a chance to make money? It very much embodies those things.
