24/7 is for fighters who:
- Are known in the boxing community, and have somewhat crossed over into the general public
- Have a great or decent fan base
- Have had a remarkable performance(s) and created a big buzz on the boxing scene
I brought this up because I've been hearing about these highly unknown fighters being named as potential opponents for Mayweather and Pacquiao, and when being reminded that these fighters are unknown outside of the boxing community and hardly known within the boxing world, people spew out 24/7 as means of promotion.
Absolutely incorrect. 24/7 is meant to put the finishing touches on the inside lives/training camps/etc. of the fighters...there's absolutely not enough time for them to build an unknown fighter over the course of 4 half-hour long episodes...especially if they are sharing 30 mins of air time with FMJ (someone who's known to make the public forget about his opponent's half of the show ).
I remember hearing a guy delusionally proclaim that Robert Guerrero is next for Mayweather Then after being confronted with the fact that Guerrero was unknown, he cried "24/7" the whole time. Knowing that Guerrero could be a likely challenge, should be no reason to be a blind fan and overlook the obvious factors. Imagine Guerrero's whole portion of the series being overshadowed my Floyd and the way he does what he does in the front of camera outside of the ring.
Thoughts on 24/7 helping fighters???
