lol... goes to show how much i know about football... i dont follow any other sport really other than boxing so forgive my ignorance on not knowing... lol... point is it was strange for them give boxing that much time on sports center... i figured there'd be talking possible team matchups etc if not for the lockout... to further explain myself i dont really watch sports center or espn other than for fights... but i noticed years ago that they had quit reporting on boxing almost all together... 5 minutes (and it was probably longer but that bout how long it lasted when i flipped to the channel) for that fight, too me, was major... maybe the lockout has nothing to do with it... just asking everyones opinion...
i think it's probably just some filler for the episode, they never really do big reports on boxing anyway. it's usually just taking a couple mins to announce a fight, talk about one of the PPV fighters, or talk about the outcome of a fight. 5 minutes is usually the amount of time they give to Mayweather or Pac though so maybe things are looking a little up for boxing.
and as other people have been saying the NFL is getting more coverage right now than it usually would be.
