The 24/7 platform is awesome. The problem that we're running into is that they only focus on Mayweather and Paq anymore. It's like Season 6 of the Kardashians at this point. Feature the same guys over and over and over, especially during training camp, when things more or less follow a schedule, and its redundant. I like watching em. I do. But it would be good to have gotten some other guys in there. Switch up the faces.
Right on. I love the show, but it's the same 5 guys over and over. Floyd, his dad, his uncle, Manny, and Roach.
Margarito-Cotto 2 would make for a great 24/7. I'd also love to see Hopkins get the profile, though Dawson would be snooze.

Floyd said he was sick of hearing about Ortiz's story and how most black athletes have had it the same way.....but bottem line is **HE** DIDNT have it the same way so he has no room to speak on it. Ive seen and heard about lil Floyds Bio...he's lived in the gym his whole life...but he never had to endure a life on the streets or grow up without parents...he still has his mom and dad till this day along with uncles who helped mold him into the no respect having material worshipping lil prick that he is. There is no comparison that can be made between Ali and Floyd....Ali went through a time when racism was at its worst....also there is no comparing Floyd to Micheal Oher....Oher REALLY came from nothing.
Watching Floyd talk the same old shit about nothing and flash his money around is older than the "Make it rain" music video...Ortiz is a relatively fresh face with a fresh story but after a mere 2 episodes people are tired of hearing about his upbringing?? Floyd had been talkin the same bullshit talk and walking the same fairy walk for years now. Personally I would rather hear about a pheonix who rose from the ashes instead of hear about how rich someone is....or his new plastic gold digger wife...or watch 50 eat Ravioli while Floyd whispers sweet nothings in his ear...gimme a break. Anyone who knows the story of the Mayweathers knows that Floyd Sr. and Roger came from the streets and Floyd Jr. grew up and had a loving/drama filled family.
Good post Street.
