i don't care that hbo got better ratings for their show with edwin rodriquez vs escalera. that was a mismatch. the darchinyan fight was decent...but again..pretty one sided. no matter how good the fights are on hbo...jim lampley and larry merchant usually ruin them. i prefer bob, kellerman and roy.

showtimes fights are much more compelling..and their commentary is always good.

You can thank, in part, Gus Johnson for some of that excitement. LOL.

Very good for Showtime considering the fact that 8 million more people have HBO.

I think the problem for hbo is that they sometimes have shobox type fights but they don't have a shobox type show on Fridays like showtime.
