Well, for certain we know it will atleast last 2 years. RM hinted that FMJr would be out of the ring in 2 years so I speculate that should that be true that Jr will still stand by SHO by giving them numerous fights with his up & coming boxers on the TMT roster.
Plus it is looking more like Broner will be coming over to SHO as well should his date with JLC Jr clash with HBO's schedule and they wind up putting JLC Jr ahead of Adrien.



And if that's the case then I expect some good quality boxing content from Showtime. It was a reason why Showtime was second fiddle to HBO all those years and the biggest part of that is Greenburg. The man knows his stuff

Unless I am mistaken 24/7 was floyd mayweather's idea.. does he get any royalties for his idea from HBO?


It was his idea but I don't know if he gets anything from it

very good points. the only thing missing from hbo was quality match ups and great commentary. they have both at showtime now. greenburg is pretty good at packaging it all. the reason they let him go was because he passed up on pac/mosley. that turned out to be the right decision. laugh.gif


It sure did, I haven't purchased a TR PPV since then and I doubt I will in the near future. That fight was a shit stain on the underpants of boxing laugh.gif

He should, he created something and HBO is just going buckwild with his idea..just looking back on it, the original concept of 24/7 is nothing short of sheer genius. And the best 24/7 shows have all involved Mayweather IMO
