Major broadcast network + professional boxing = Yes!!! Now let's see how unselfish the promoters can be for the better of the sport.

Ha! As long as I have that advantage Professor, then you'll always have problems. cool.gif

On another note, I love these NBC cards, regardless of the competition at times. The fact that boxing is making a stronger stance towards being back on regular television, truly gets a thumbs up from. I haven't been disappointed with one of these cards yet.

not really. i'm cool. i deal with the youngans in the gym on a daily basis. laugh.gif

the move to network television is long overdue. i'd like to see some other promoters/stables get tv time too.

Definitely a big boost for boxing. I like the matchups and the way it's promoted is pretty good also. I can't wait to see what the future holds for the Fight Night series. Other promoters should follow suit and bring compelling matches back to network stations

so long as they stay away from the hometown decisions....like the one adamek got over fast eddie....they should be alright.

anyone else like the commentary? what's the cruiserweights name again? he's pretty good.
