Full Version: 8-week 24/7

After watching fight camp 360 the showtime put on I realized how terrible watching training camp can be without the face of boxing and since he doesn't fight that often it raises the question: Should HBO do an 8-week 24/7 instead of the normal 4-week show?

p.s. Ben, if you get enough heat on this tread will you let money know so we can get his opinion? We all miss money may when he's not on t.v.

SmartyBeardo

Roger is a trip. He's always talkin' 'bout someone doesn't know shit about boxin' lol.

SmartyBeardo
Since there are so many who would watch it, I take that no back. The numbers probably work. Why not?

There is literally nothing funny about either of those two. Floyds banter is fucking chronic and Rogers may well be good but humour loses its spark when it has to be subtitled. Cut it any way u want, the Mayweathers dont have enough to say to fill 8 weeks of TV. Thats not because i'm a hater (I am a hater btw), its just that Floyd has nothing interesting to say.

i don't think they even make four good episodes, i don't want to see eight. it's always the same old shit on Pac and Mayweather episodes

As long as Manny's poor ENGLISH SPEAKING third world ass is not on for 8 weeks... that would be horrific and uninteresting for sure!!!

Agree. Pac episodes: Manny is distracted, politics, helping the community, camp members trying to lose weight for cash, repeat

Floyd episodes, Incoherent rambling from Roger, egotistical immature displays of wealth from Floyd, Floyd bitching about no one recognises his chrity work, sarcoidosis, pad slapping, repeat.

24/7 needs to change the record if they want 8 episodes of entertainment, and I stand by my view that the Mayweathers are fully style over substance and have nothing interesting to say. They rely on their cringewworthy antics to claim as entertainment

You didn't even have to take it there, man. LOL! I like watchin' Manny outside of the ring. He's somewhat comedic.

Roger is the best thing that ever happened to 24/7. You can always get a good laugh out of his ass, even though the shit he says isn't meant to be funny. If you disagree, "you don't know shit about boxin'." LOL!

lol yeah that's about what their episodes are like. except they usually cue some footage of Pac getting beat on in sparring before dropping the "Pac's attention isn't on boxing" bombshell on people. 24/7 is what it's, it's 85% hyping a fight and 15% boxing. i would much rather them have some scripted shit where Pac is showing up to Marquez's training camp and pulling a Clubber Lang. that would be some prime time entertainment too. the best they've is some scenes of Mosley training his son for like 10 minutes? that's corny.

4 Weeks is plenty. Let the guys train and do their thing. too much of that camera shit is intrusive, especially when you're trying to get in game face mode.

As mentioned, these guys in 24/7's at his point is like Season 6 of Entourage...caricatures of themselves.

I do enjoy 24/7 and all, but not 8 of em.

They do teach english in grade school over there. Manny just didnt finish because of poverty. He obviously knows more english that most Non-US boxers...
