I think I read somewhere a while back, Showtime hired a guy w/ very close ties (or at a minimum, a great relationship) w/ GBP. In fact, I think it was here on FH where they predicted more and more things would be going on w/ Showtime and GBP fighters.
It's weird. If I remember correctly, a guy that worked for Showtime for a looong time, just came to HBO last year, and I believe he took Greenburg's place. I really need to go back and read that.

I know it won't happen, but Bob Arum said that he wants to do a JCC Jr vs Sergio Martinez fight on the same day. That would be interesting. I don't know if I would like that or not....having 2 major fights like that on the same night. It would make for a truly memorable night of boxing if they do the timing right. It would cost around $120....but having 1 loaded night of amazing boxing would be very interesting.
If he does have Julio's fight on the same night, it will more than likely be free...unless you read that it was supposed to be a PPV. I think buyers are getting used to PPVs taking place in Sept. and May, so Im not so sure it would effect the Alvarez/Ortiz buys, but who knows.
I hope Martinez/Chavez happens to be a PPV on a different weekend though. Its about time these other guys get to headline PPVs and get some shine, rather than us having to watch the big 3 (FMJ, MP, Cotto) headline PPVs.
